Blockstream Engineer: Bitcoin price rises or causes bitcoin lightning network capacity to drop

The Bitcoin Lightning Network (LN) capacity has continued to fall in recent days and has fallen below 940 BTC; the Litetek lightning network capacity has also dropped to 283 LTC, raising supporters' concerns about its liquidity and long-term potential. In response, Blockstream engineer Rusty Russell explained that the decline in lightning network capacity may be related to the recent rise in bitcoin prices. "I hope this is a sign that people are remembering that the lightning network is still in beta, as bitcoin prices have risen , by reducing capacity to control risk prediction.” In the most recent cryptocurrency price increase, a negative correlation between market growth and lightning network capacity can be observed.
