Question: Can zeros be added to Bitcoin, increasing the number of sathoshis from 100m to more than 100M? It is alleged on twitter that zeros can be added and that it is already so on LN. If so, why wouldn't this be increasing the supply of BTC? Even if it is still 21m BTC, it would be more satoshis, which I understand is the base unit anyway.

@KingWm if lightning is based on a finite supply of 21 million btc on the best day and 14 million or so according to people who speculate on tje amount of lost coins i dont see how thats math possible. Splitting 21 million bitcoin into micro fractions of a satoshi wirh lightning doesnt create more btc. It just makes existing btc divisible in smaller portions
