Bitcoin lightning is a layer-2 technology that locks up bitcoin in a channel that can be used like a bar tab to make lightning fast payments. There are 3,628 BTC on the lightning network and 86k channels.
Litecoin also has this layer-2 technology but is less popular due to it's on-chain capacity and fees at this time.
