Take the Lightning Network for a test drive. Send me a payment request. (Reddit Bitcoin)


If anyone wants to give lightning a try then Lightning App and Eclair Mobile are both very user friendly options and both are non custodial. https://github.com/ACINQ/eclair-mobile https://blog.lightning.engineering/announcement/2019/06/19/mobile-app.html# Eclair is Android only but Lightning App is both IOS and Android. Lightning App has an autopilot feature so you don’t need to worry about opening channels yourself, you receive a Bitcoin payment and a channel is automatically created with however much Bitcoin you received. Eclair has a feature where you can request inbound capacity which makes receiving payments to your channel easier. Eclair has both static channel backups (which means that you can recover your channels with your seed phrase) and watchtowers (which ensure your funds remain safe in the unlikely event your device is offline for more than 2 weeks). If anyone wants to test receiving payments reply with a payment request for $1 and I will pay it 🙂 Once your channel is open check that you have receiving capacity. If you don’t then install Blue Wallet which is available for both IOS and Android and send however much you funded your channel with there, you will now have receiving capacity of the same amount that you originally funded your channel with. ​ Also, if you have any questions or concerns about Lightning then ask, hit me with your best FUD 😉 ⚡
