It is really quite striking to watch this technological wonder grow yet not have a shred of confidence in its price due to the actions of a few.

Did you dumb goyim really think you could defeat r0ach the physical silver barbarian?  Sorry goyim, all the real money is now gone:

You have permission to purchase as many imaginary, valueless, digital shitcoins that you want, though!

For some people it takes longer to undertand how it works.

Bigblockers don't like it because LN makes their shitcoin completely irrelevant.

Fixed it.

EDIT: this whole Lightning thing is a very (f***ing) complicated clever approach. no wonder that the Big Blockers don't like it. it's not easy to understand but it seems the right direction to scale Bitcoin.

I am a big defender of the LN however I've been thinking about the question a bcasher asked to Andreas a while ago.

How is bitcoin going to hard fork while there are thousands of people on the LN?

Is is even possible?

What'll happen if a critical bug is revealed? Some features can only be added via hf...

Even Andreas paused. He actually couldn't come up with an answer instantly like he always did and said he has to think about it first.

The recommendation that I see repeated over and over again in the Electrum child board is to reinstall the OS, unfortunately.  https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?board=98.0 Several people have become victims of this. Perhaps you should invest in a hardware wallet like a Trezor or Ledger.

Okay then, thanks, maybe I should try to save my BTC to buy a hardware wallet.
I know it's been recommended but I'm just concern about if there are some malware left in my PC, getting more recommendation on what to do
makes me feel comfortable as I decided not to reformat my PC.

Cool false alarm.  He last posted there on 15 Feb and is showing as active today so he's ok.  Probably too busy drinking rum and lying in the sun.

There has never been an emergency hardfork on Bitcoin.

For an emergency hardfork to happen on Bitcoin, would require an existential threat to the network.  In those circumstances you better shut your channels right smart.  

If the hard fork destroys the lighting network and you cannot close your channels in time, tough shit.  The integrity of main net takes precedence and everyone knows it.  Maybe you will lose your coins locked to lightning, maybe the person who gets them will be honourable and return them, maybe the hard fork will force close channels.  Who knows.  Lightning is intended for low value, high volume payments.  It is not intended to be as secure as main net.  

Security is expensive, horrifically so in a decentralised context.  If you want strong security, don't put anything on lighting. 

Keep in mind we are talking about a very low probability event.  Bitcoin is riddled with low probability events that could destroy it.  Quantum computing, global government ban, SHA-256 is broken, all intel/amd processors get backdoored etc etc.

I am not only talking about security threats.

What if we need to upgrade the network via hf? What if we suddenly decide to increase the block size? or implement some other feature which can only be added via hf?

Then what?

I feel a bit trapped tbh.

People need to close their channels and gtfo immediately I see... At least there is a way but if the LN gets toooooooo big (i mean big corporation level big like microsoft, apple, mcdonalds and starbucks using it, that might be a problem.)

Block size changes or other features are not an emergency.  

If a hard fork is necessary, and the community agrees to the change, then it can be planned in advance.  The most likely outcome is that lightning would not skip a beat.  Keep in mind that the only interaction between lightning and main net is opening and closing a multi-sig transaction.  A block increase should not, all other things being equal, have any impact on an open multi-sig transaction.  A planned hard fork can test in advance and address any potential bugs.  

Keep in mind that the entire ethos of Bitcoin development is not to have any hard forks so we are still talking about a very low probability event.  

Edit:

Also if parties are cooperating, they can close their channels instantly.  They dont need an onchain transaction to close.  I get your point about how potentially it could make hard forks harder, but a hard fork doesn't have to affect lightning at all.  It probably wouldnt.

Anyone knows if there is already any service of "proxy" online LN wallet?

I mean, something that would work like this:

- I send, for example, 0.1BTC to their wallet (my deposit address) same as I do with an exchange.

- Now I have a 0.1BTC balance with them (not your keys, not your BTC... I know)

- Then, the service would let me send LN payments which they would route via their LN node and already established channels on my behalf and substract the amount (plus a fee, presumably) from my balance.

- A plus would also be the possibility of creating LN invoices and receiving payments in the same way above and an easy to use mobile phone APP.

Anyone?

Check out Blue Wallet - might be the thing you are looking for. It is only available as a mobile app though. As for LN invoices, if you plan to use it in e-commerce, you can check out Open Node plugin (for woocommerce), but simple requests can be created in BW app too.
Hope that helps!

Nah.  We are supposed to track sideways until October 2019.  No manipulation required.

Proof of Hairy

That’d be great if we stay in a sideways trend for that long, I should be able to buy another 3 or 4 whole bitcoin’s in that length of time.
