Lots of nastier (legal) porn is being produced thanks to bitcoin actually, and that is an extra reason why bitcoin won't go away.

Millennials need stronger porn than previous generations due to abused serotoninergic circuit.

"100 Merchants Can Now Trial Bitcoin's Lightning Network Risk Free"

"Instant payments are the most important from our point of view," Tamás Szerencse, head of payments at LiveJasmin, said, expanding on why the company joined CoinGate's Lightning pilot.

With up to 40 million daily visitors, LiveJasmin could become one of the biggest mainstream merchants to experiment with Lightning so far. Experimenting with more diverse transaction types could provide invaluable insight into how Lightning works out in the wild.


livejasmin sounds like porn. porn was always driving new technologies. if porn accepts bitcoin, mainstream adaption will follow Smiley

Not just porn. Before that all the innovation was coming from a desire to actually mate with a real females.



Does anyone know, do I have to spend down on my channel (I only have one open right now) before I can receive payments on that channel? Or can I receive lightning payments that cause a balance on a channel that is in excess of the total amount that I dedicated to the channel when I opened it? If it is the latter is there a limit to it?



Hey guys. Are you seriously telling me that not one person here can provide me with a lightning address to test out in exchange for free money? Alternatively does anyone know any good causes (causes, Jesus I sound like a liberal) that are accepting lightning donations?

1) Good question. I'm not sure about how that works - needing to establish at least one channel to fund a transaction. I'd test, but I just shut down my node a short while back - It has become a distraction at the moment, and I'm starting to pursue passion projects now.

Hey I found my answer. My wallet is saying "Can't ask for Lightning payments yet because first you need to spend at least ~5000 satoshis in order to make space for receiving." My intuition from my understanding of the mechanics of lightning was right. I feel pretty good about that. Doesn't that create a chicken and egg problem though? How was the first lightning payment received?


2) I mean, I could provide you an invoice to pay. How much money to you want to send me ?

Is that the only way it works? You can't just provide something like an open ended address that I can send how ever much I want to? If not than that's probably why no one responded to my call.


3) Back to point 1 - shutting down my node - lightning is certainly a compelling technology, and I'll be revisiting back when it's even more stable.

 Playing with it over the last 4 months has been... well... a bit of a slog TBH as things were approaching the 0.6 release.

 Funded about 0.5 BTC to play with across a bunch of channels, pulled out 0.26 BTC after shutting everything down. Fucked around with Satoshi's place a bit, bought some stickers, but I believe most of the 0.24 BTC I didn't get back was blown on channel open/close fees, and possibly just "lost" due to bugs and shit.

 Whatever.

 Still continuing to run my full public node, as that is effectively zero upkeep, and I have enough HD space allocated for the server to run for at least 10 years if it has to, on it's own dedicated UPS.

 Just wish this wasn't such a shit season for Bitcorn Sad

Jesus christ man. That's thousands of dollars. That sucks. I'm not running a full node here. Just testing out the android app. Just testing how the UX is shaping up for normies.



Does anyone know a service that allows a content creator to receive micro payment donations via lightning? That was touted as one of the reasons for developing this technology after all.



Sorry for so much off topic talk about lightning. Again if someone knows a better active thread for it I'll take it there instead. But I don't see too much harm in it, not much else going on around here.

Not only that, but also the recipient needs to be online when the transaction is made.

From another thread:

"BUY THE DIP GUYS!"

"THIS IS THE BOTTOM GUYS!"

"WE ARE ENTERING A NEW BULL MARKET!"

So, how did that work out? LOL

Here's a quick fact. People in the real world don't want your fantasy imaginary money that can be hacked at any moment and offers no privacy whatsoever.

kwukduck is around, so we must be nearing the bottom, maybe it doesn't go down to 3xxx levels after all Smiley

Good morning Bitcoinland.

I see we had a bit of a dip, all the way down to where we were over a week ago...$6393USD/$8390CAD (Bitcoinaverage).

Why does this always seem (lately) to happen when I'm short on cash to buy more coins?

I can't bitch though. It's only money and I'm not impoverished quite yet.

maybe it doesn't go down to 3xxx levels after all Smiley

That 3xxx nonsense is just wishful thinking by people who missed the boat (or panic sold at the bottom) and desperately want the price to go down.

Both reasonable prices to pay for what is being achieved. We all wish there was a magic bullet. Bcash certainly isn't it.

Here we go! This will do https://www.lightningspin.com/. I've never gambled before. I hope I'm not about to find out that I'm one of THOSE people. I'll do 5x so that hopefully I lose and don't have to find out Cheesy.

*update* I lost $0.38! Noooo! But hey the fee for the transaction was 0.006 satoshis! Holy cow. That's $0.00000038 Bwahahaha. Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy The poorest person in the world could afford that fee. That's like one one millionth of one tin can collected for recycling by a homeless man. And now I can receive a payment too.

Just don't read anything that gives any spoilers and start watching it from the beginning when you land. Functionally equivalent to the game having started an hour or two later than it did, no?
