Experimenting with lightning

Last updated last month

Risks, Work in Progress

Improper channels backup = loss of funds

Channels that are not close properly, e.g during a crash of your node, and if you submit a wrong, outdated transaction in the wrong order, may be considered as an attack: you will loose your stake!

Different lightning implementation have different Tx fees costs calculation = no loss of funds, but no usage

If during node hops, not enough funds are locked to pay for fees, the channel will close automatically.

Opening channel with no fund locked on the other side = no loss of funds, but no usage
