This means that after phase one of their project that covered North and South America, Europe and Africa, they have now expanded to provide free private Bitcoin transactions without an internet connection to the Asia Pacific region.
A major proponent of Bitcoin's Lightning Network (LN) implementation, Blockstream also unveiled an API to allow broadcast of data via Blockchain Satelite with fees paid via protocol. Developers promised the API would go live for users in January 2019.
