Advantages of LN for end users

Bitcoin Reddit

Reddit / Bitcoin Reddit 12 Views

I know the Lightning Network is very useful for users who do both sending and receiving Bitcoins. For example, exchanges. It will save a lot of time for users and blockspace for blockchain in this case.

But what about using LN for end line users who mostly either only spend coins (miners, partner programs, regular consumers) or earn coins (internet shops, services, etc)? They'll have to create channels and just spend channel balance and then close channels. Wouldn't be it easier for them just avoid LN and use regular Bitcoin TX?

And if yes, what is point in LN when such end-line users are the majority of network?
