Project Description

We review existing pathfinding algorithms suitable for instantaneous settlement of Bitcoin-denominated payments within the Lightning network payment protocol. Afterwards, we explore the application of continuous optimization algorithms to find optimal multipart payment splits with respect to several partially competing objectives.

Successful applicants will receive a financial package totaling over $6000 that includes housing, dining and a stipend. More information about the the program can be found here:


Applicants should be current undergraduate students in the United States in good standing. Applicants must commit to spending 40 hours per week working on this project on UNC Charlotte’s campus in Charlotte, North Carolina.
