Open House Group Company Limited, one of the leading real estate companies in the Tokyo metropolitan area, is sponsoring Japan’s largest Lightning Network community, known as Diamond Hands, in a joint research project, according to a press release sent to Bitcoin Magazine.
Open House will sponsor Diamond Hands’ support and outreach efforts as it seeks to drive adoption of the Lightning Network in the region.

Additionally, Open House seeks to strengthen its understanding of the ecosystem by exploring end-to-end business operations for enterprises. This research will include secure data storage on personal devices and cloud databases on full nodes in real estate properties, leveraging layer two bitcoin technology for real estate transactions, and how to route payments over the Lightning Network.
