Create a Lightning invoice for 0.00592992 tBTC or less to claim article's pending earnings.
It would make me happy if you shared your experiences in the comments.
Need more channels, better description of what channels are selling.. Killer app is NFC tap to pay on mobile phone for essentials like groceries
Having to constantly be online on case a payment comes through. It kills the mobile experience
Lightning Network is fast and easy to use, but hey man, opening a channel is pretty slow, it takes from some minutes up to hours :(
I paid twice to read this article. It seems that the payment info expires. I clicked to pay last night, but I did actually pay today (the tab stayed open with the QR code). Any idea wat causes this? Does a payment "link" expire?
Great work guys! Keep it up
Zap doesn't work for me
Very nice. Check me out! @moxie on steemit! @moxchain on Twitter! Love LN!
Right now eclair is better than lightning-app.. too many bugs on the latter
I didn't understand how to make public key with IP.
Can't make payment in starblocks.acinq.co
No 1 made channel with me, even I have 15 channels with others. so can't receive before send.
it was better If application could open channel automatic with others randomly (then I may received channel from other nudes)
All works fine!
I can't get routes when I have my mobile VPN connected (using PIA). It works fine turned off.
Same here, though it doesn't help that I first tried with Eclair which isn't able to receive payments at all.
i mostly have problems receiving transactions because you need channels with funds on the other side...
@anon: I also cannot get the lightning faucet to connect to me.
"Could not find a route"
"first peer not ready: WIRE_UNKNOWN_NEXT_PEER"
"failed: WIRE_PERMANENT_NODE_FAILURE (reply from remote)"
I've posted my analysis as an article: https://yalls.org/articles/a1264e7f-401d-4c46-97a7-7b14e6b54193:926B20A0-5375-4E8A-BC75-D060BD930D7C/d891c5f9-cfd8-4234-9034-6926006e9c34
All works fine. I'm just having some issues with the Starblocks transaction.
hmm I get a lot of errors similar such as timeout with no response, unknown next peer, route not found (even though I have a direct channel opened)
It's working. Running Lightning app on Windows. App needs to stay open for a while to get the nodes & channels current. One odd thing: I needed to connect to an eclair peer in order to receive from eclair wallet. Should have been able to find route...
It is unclear to me whether I need to specify only a LN public key, or a fully-qualified key with the IP address and port, when making a payment.
It is unclear to me whether it is bad etiquette to try to open a LN channel to some public key that I've found without first asking.
I've tried to fund my Lightning Node from the faucet here: https://faucet.lightning.community/ but when I do so, the faucet website kept on saying that my node was invalid. I tried everything, including full qualification with IP and port. Finally, after some time, now it seems to be working but I'm not sure why.
its working - :-)
A lot of confusion around which channels to join, and how to join them.
Some payments are made but it doesn't register on the site.
No easy to install GUIs for desktop computers.
love eclair wallet, i haven't had any issues, closed channels remain in the list of channels..might be intentional
