  • Bootstrapping a LN node with 10 channels, 20M sats capacity including 8M sats inbound.. using only 1 onchain transaction locking 12M sats of your own bitcoin.
    100 ksat according to release notes is maximum value in version 0.13 of LND. I guess earlier versions would require 10 ksat per channel with no maximum.

    LND has a feature called SCB (static channel backup), this can help you when the channel data gets deleted/corrupted, it has enough information about the channels to contact the other LN nodes you had channels with and ask them to cooperatively close those channels for you. If you have this backup file anywhere, attempt to restore it following this procedure maybe. | 2021-06-08
    You might be interested to know that there is a new PR for LND to support "pseudo-reuse" of atomic multipath invoices. The mechanism generates a new payment secret for each payment to avoid the problem I described. | 2021-06-08
  • Bitcoin Lightning Network | 2021-06-07
    You are right that Lightning Network will benefit from many upgrades (starting with Taproot) but watchtowers are supported by LND since 2019.

  • Co-inventor of Lightning Network Tadge Dryja: The Lightning Network is not patented. | 2021-05-25
    Prior art voids patents. Secondly, yes, Blockstream's c-lightning is released under FOSS license. But c-lightning isn't even the most popular implementation of LN, LND is (released under FOSS MIT license). Neither Bitcoin not LN could work if they weren't released under FOSS licenses.
