c-lighning's user has the option of funding a private channel with
The user, such as myself, executes
fundchannel and, provided that the fee was sufficient,
soon has a channel at their disposal. How does the process look on the other side?
- Is the request
to open a private channel logged in
.lightning/bitcoin/logof the other party? If so what level of logging is required? Would anybody be kind enough to paste an example from their
open_channelused to complete the creation of the channel in the case that the other party agrees on creating a private channel.
- Can monitoring the content of
.lightning/bitcoin/logbe the basis of Bitcoin's censorship through the attempt to limit private channel creation to only whitelisted parties or to only those that are not blacklisted. Let's say that a law is passed that says that the operators of routing nodes have a legal obligation to store their logs and provide law enforcement with access to such logs. Opening private channels to the sanctioned entities or the non-whitelisted entities is punished. The aim of such a law would be to restrict the usage of c-lightning to custodial wallets.
- Do top-capacity routing nodes automate the process of agreeing on the channel opening to them? If so what are the most commonly used solutions/scripts/plugins for this purpose?
