So, I've tried out the LN on Bitcoin testnet. I'm using https://github.com/lightninglabs/lightning-app and https://htlc.me/ as my LN wallets.
What have I observed?
My first test with Eclair Wallet Testnet, amazing LN, I see a very good future for bitcoin.
Damn, it just feels great to interact with lightning :)
payment via HTCL was quick!! awesome to finally use LN in the testnet wild
Anyone tried paybolts.com? Beta seems pretty good
Hi I'm using Lightning app (Testnet) on Android 4.4 and works pretty well. Eclair also looks nice but isn't compatible with old phones.
By the way, I just tried the new Eclair wallet on Android and it works beautifully!
The main improvement is that sync is crazy fast, and the UI/UX really sweet and smooth, it was painless to open a connection to the lightning network.
Does anyone know how to enable routing fees on the node to see how they work?
Zap wallet works quite good now Beta 1
Some glitches when it starts up.
But after some talking to the network it works fine,
Well, I was just able to read this thanks to zap, just had to restart it a bunch of times. Restart seems to solve everything. Otherwise it was all hella-fast: initial download and sync, receiving testnet btc, opening a channel - amazing. I love it already!
(I also highly appreciate the very funny notifications.)
A great beginning for what's to come thanks to lightning!
Same here so looks like it is not available
firstname.lastname@example.org:9735 says connection refused :/
I'm using Eclair wallet for Android. Very simple setup.
LN is amazing, you are experiencing the future, that's one thing you for sure have observed!
The UX in the Lightning App makes me sad. I'll agree with you there. A problem I'm finding with channels, is a lot of people testing them, are opening them, but they aren't online much outside of testing. So, the hubs that you mentioned, the big ones people are connecting to, unless routing to the other large hubs, just can't get the routing done.
I am connected to a dozen or so of the biggest hubs. If you want to open a channel to me, my node is online 24/7 and available to be used for channels in testing. From me, you should be able to get to yalls, buy your starblocks, or fake bitrefill your phone.
