Damn it takes a long time for my avatar to load  Roll Eyes

Who are you & what have you done with mic & his hat?

Price is going higher. Are we close to hitting the $6000 next month? Any guesses?

I’m gonna say yes, in May we’ll hit $6,000. My birthday is in May so it better be a good month for bitcoin.

Mic is with his seastead/Elwar/solidarity HAT @the moment or t’ill Some better news or so ....

And good let May be a awesome month Cheesy as BTC as LFC Smiley

To be fair, people probably only comment if they have a strong opinion.  So people who comment are a small segment of society.

Great interview on the What Bitcoin Did podcast: https://www.whatbitcoindid.com/podcast/peter-rizuns-lightning-critique-fud-or-fair

I assume a number of you will summarily dismiss this, rushing to judgement before examining the evidence. But for the open-minded, certainly worth a listen.

I am truly looking forward to the necessitated responses from the LN-faithful. Well, to the extent that such responses be substantive. If this conversation carries forward in a respectful manner, we may all learn a thing or two.

edit: Incidentally, this has been 'Lightning Month' on What Bitcoin Did. Quite a few good installments, each focusing on a different aspect of Lightning.

https://stephanlivera.com/episode/68

Quote
Joost Jager, Lightning Network Infrastructure Engineer at Lightning Labs, joins me in this episode to talk about Lightning Loop Out and In. We also discuss some of the recent criticisms of the Lightning Network by Peter Rizun. We talk:

    How Lightning Loop helps you manage inbound liquidity, or pay with BTC on chain to get outgoing capacity on a lightning channel
    Practical uses of Lightning Loop technology
    Some of the technicals behind how Lightning Loop works e.g. hodlinvoice
    Thoughts and responses to Peter Rizun’s criticisms of the Lightning Network

Cool. Thanks. Will listen.

So I got around to listening to the Stephan Livera podcast featuring Joost Jager. If this is what serves as comprehensive rebuttal to Rizun’s points, you might want to start worrying about the efficacy of LN. Of course, this is just response from a single LN dev, who may not have prepared to discuss Rizun’s ‘Five Fundamental Flaws of LN’. The first half of the interview covered Jager’s work on loop in/out.

For the record, the following is my restatement as best I concisely can of Rizun’s ‘Five Fundamental Flaws of LN’:

1) Lightning scales txs not users
2) Friction in layer 1 leaks into layer 2
3) Routing failures are inevitable
4) Much trapped liquidity in the system
5) Running a non-custodial wallet is more cumbersome than onchain

And the following is my brief capture of the points made by host and guest on these points. These are very brief - I would suggest listening to the podcast yourself to get the full flavor. The numbers on each point correspond to my impression which of Rizun’s FFFoLN are being referred to. YEs, these are sketchy outlines of their discussion. Again, listen to the podcast for in depth info devoid of my spin (which I have tried to avoid). In roughly chronological order:

SL (stating Rizun’s points):
2) variability of fees cause problems at the Lightning layer
5) drive too much custodial wallet use
JJ:
5) very true at the moment - decentralized solutions are hard - just early - lot of work to do
   don’t see why fundamentally it won’t work to automate cumbersome parts
SL:
1) hard to onboard users - LN scales txs, not users - over time, not enough UTXOs for each person to be sovereign; think this can be solved via multiparty txs
JJ:
1) good problem to have
SL:
2) can’t we just wait for fees to come down?
JJ:
2) yes
SL:
2) Friction from layer 1 can cause problems on layer 1
JJ:
2) have no answer - if need to post cancel on chain at $1000 fee, that’s a problem
SL:
2) Stop and Decrypt says that fees only go up in USD value, not BTC
5) Need to be online to receive payment
JJ:
5) who is not always online?
5) permanent uptime at home, mobile client as a remote control to that server
5) maybe create some sort of mailbox which would hold payment until online
SL:
some can be solved by engineering
2) just make the retaliation window sizable
3) problem finding route with sufficient liquidity
JJ:
3) perhaps reputation can inform routing - this would increase success percentage
SL:
3) what about mobile phones needing to route? Does phone require entire graph?
JJ:
3) reputational routing might lead to many channels being private to guard reputation, this will reduce size of routing graph
3) hybrid - whitelisted/blacklisted nodes - weakens decentralization, but may work for mobile
SL:
4) trapped liquidity
4) but loop will help
JJ:
4) yes, loop can help inbound liquidity (seems to misunderstand the issue as only transactional -ed)
4) perhaps inbound liquidity may be provided at no cost
SL:
Rizun skeptical this complexity cannot be abstracted away
I think SPV is overly romanticized - holding onto UX that is infeasible in long term
JJ:
The question may be whether onchain is viable in the long term
LN is inherently complex, onchain is easier
SL:
Last thoughts?
JJ:
In general, it’s pretty early - huge fees are speculative; 4B people to use? LN solves a current problem
Would like to see a killer app that LN uniquely solves. Micro tx space would be likely as unique value.
Would like to improve payment reliability

——

All in all, as a rebuttal to Rizun’s FFFoLN, I find this unpersuasive in the extreme. While I am already a known LN skeptic, I see nothing in the above that contradicts a single one of Rizun’s points.

Perhaps I should just wait until the next contender arrives to dispel Rizun’s FFFoLN?  Dunno. But as I said earlier, if all my eggs were in the Lightning basket, I be starting to get scared about now.

I’m not really interested in getting into a detailed analysis of Lightning with big blockers.  But even if Lightning was a total flop (and not saying that it will be - quite the opposite), there are other tools out there like Blockstream Liquid.

And if big blocks become a matter of life or death, Bitcoin will simply fork and pick them up.

But the current block size works fine for a store of value and there are horrible compromises with big blocks that cannot be undone. So no need to change now.

And we sure as hell aren’t going to use Craig or Roger’s shitcoin so you can forget that idea.

Not only 60% I think 80%+ percent recovery in this year but it is only technically moved BTC transaction volume low but up and down high. I hope a great day every BTCBTC lover it is soon .

"A channel is 1 onchain UTXO but it represents the funds of 2 people. The 2 outputs are off-chain. If a block has 2k tx then each block can on-board 4k people. Multi-party channels could have more off-chain outputs: thousands. That would mean a block could on-board 4 million users" - alex bosworth

BTW, we know there are tradeoffs with lightning , as with any solution, the above links go into detail what these tradeoffs are. That is why we are scaling in multiple ways including onchain right now.
