as explained here I showed that the betweeness centrality of a node on the fee graph is proportional to the expected routing fees which again is proportional to the throughput of your node. So taking your throughput and dividing it by your betweeness centrality score should give you a rough estimate of how much throughput is handled by the network. That ...

If you can verify that Phoenix is running the code that you expect - the open source eclair implementation of the Lightning Network and Phoenix wallet - then they will not be able to use their node to "say that you're cheating". This is because they do not have signatures for your unique commitment transaction, so there's no chance that they can ...

The hsm_secret is used to derive keys for both onchain and offchain (channels commitments) transactions. On chain To retrieve on chain funds you can rescan the block chain for your utxos by using the --rescan startup option of lightningd. Off chain You can not re create the whole state of your channels just from the hsm_secret, which are stored in the ...

what you are talking about is usually refered to as dual funded channels. This is a feature that did not make it into the current version of the Protocol (BOLT1.0). However it was agreed by the developers that it should become part of BOLT 1.1. Currenly C-lightning has most progress towards this feature. There is a legacy feature push_msat which opens the ...

The maximum size for HTLC's are currently defined by max_htlc_value_in_flight_msat and is roughly 42mBTC. The max_concurrent_htlc that you mention seems to be the max_accepted_htlcs and states how many HTLCs can be within a commitment transaction at the same time. This has nothing to do with the maximum payment size (not transaction size) of a single path. ...

the problem is in your call of charged there you are passing the argument --ln-path ~/.lightning assuming that you run lightning in your home directory thus you have to set ln-path to /tmp/l1-regtest/. Now you say that this also did not work. So before I give you a solution let me explain what is actually going on. charged talkes to lightningd via an rpc-...

Hsm secret is only used to derive your keys but you need more than that - which is the state of your channels (meaning the most recent commitment transaction and revocstion secrets). This information can be found in your sql file in the .lightning directory. The problem is that this backup has to be made everytime the state of a channel changes (even failed ...

Since this is a hypothetical question it is hard to give a definite answer. So unfortunately I have to write both yes and no. But let me elaborate: Yes, because if you use phoenix which is software by ACINQ and connect to their node controlled by them. Very theoretically there could be a deliberate problem with phoenix wallet trying to cheat if connected to ...

Click the three dots in the top right corner, tap "Network Info". Your NodeId is visible on this screen Now, go to the URL ip.tyk.nu to find your IP address. Now, in a Linux prompt (or WSL), install the PyPI qrcode package. On Ubuntu, it is available in the python3-qrcode package. Now, execute this command (substitute the values you just learnt): echo -...
