We use "micro-payment channels" such as "Bitcoin Lightning Network" or "Duplex Micro-Payment Channels" for saving transaction fee, accelerating payments, supporting better micro-payment and scaling blockchain.

Is there any difference between "state channel" v.s "micro-payment channel"? and if so, what are differences?


A payment channel is essentially a subset of a state channel. (The state being tracked is how much currency is owed to each participant.)
