    An open-source explorer developed for the Bitcoin community, focusing on the emerging transaction fee market to help our transition into a multi-layer ecosystem.

    Patience is the key. Gain knowledge and take your time. Look into minimizing your fees in particular when opening new channels https://mempool.space/.

Look into channel swaps such as https://lightningnetwork.plus or consider looping out some sats.
