  • Electrum Lighting channels keep force closing on me.
    Seems to be a known Eclair problem. Which is unfortunate since Eclair is the only implementation with trampoline routing afaik. I'd try reporting it to the Electrum devs.
  • Is there a simple Windows Lightning node program to install & connect to my full bitcoin core node?

    eclair, developed by ACINQ.
  • Help me understand a channel close due to local/remote fees too different.
    Ah, it's been reported & there's some insightful info from dev:
    in Eclair, apparently the close ratio used to be calculated by a strange formula that does not seem to be breached in my case but the node operator might have changed the ratio. However, nowadays the default is even stricter if I read it correctly.

  • Can anyone answer some basic questions for a beginner?
    Where I'm at now: I've tried installing LND and eclair, but again--neither provide clear instructions on how to install (at least on Windows). Lastly, I've installed the Lightning app using the executable, which has finally worked. But, I don't know if this is a full node or just a Lightning wallet. How would I tell? As far as I can tell the only options are to pay or request sats.
  • Happy To Now Be A Part Of The Lightning Network
    I found this Github issue:
  • How can I install Eclair on windows.
    There's like 5 or 6 different Lightning node implementations. They even name two of the other major ones in the README. Just like there's multiple Bitcoin node implementations.

  • You can do a normal Bitcoin transaction for just $0.27 at the moment. -> You can do a Lightning transaction for $0.000331420 | 2021-01-26
    Acinq -> Eclair (using Scala)
  • Getting started with lightning development
    The prior you'll want learn either Go for LND, Scala for Eclair, or C for c-lightning.
