Everything below according to Alex Bosworth, lead developer at Lightning Labs.

Was Alex speaking.

So you're wrong about that in addition.  Kiss
That's not how "according to ..." works in English. It is not at all saying that everything below is according to Alex. That phrase literally means "the thing in the sentence prior" is according to him. So no, you're wrong. Stop spreading FUD.

What I am spreading is the truth spoken by a lead lightning developer,

you seem to want the lie to be believed over the truth.

Whatever, spread your lies all you want, but they are still lies and idiots like wind fury believe you,
so you will bear responsibility for his failures based on your lies.

Um no, the six things the lead developer, Alex Bosworth, stated is in the tweet near the bottom of the article.

Quote
Why is my node not routing?
1. You don't have inbound liquidity
2. Low uptime
3. Capital is committed to competitive destinations
4. Capital committed to destinations no one wants to send to
5. Fees are too high
6. Your inbound liquidity doesn't have good inbound liquidity itself

It's interesting that one of your quotes is from the blog of BTC.Com, which is run by Bitmain.  Roll Eyes
 (You know, the one's behind BCH-ABC.)
On the other quote, who the hell is @Aquentys?  Roll Eyes

Oh, and by the way, I'm not a fan of the lightning network myself. However, surely you can come up with better material than quoting a poorly written article out of context.  Kiss

Newbies read this. There are no IOUs in Lightning. Transactions in Lightning are signed by both participants of the channel, that can later be broadcasted on-chain and be included in the blockchain.

NO ONE is sending some "IOU pegged token" to the other end of their channels.

It's just miles away from being somehow secure (and never will be)  like on-chain was proven for 10y now.

No one can debate against "Bitcoin on-chain transactions are more secure than Lightning off-chain transactions". But can you explain the connection between the "amount of Lightning users" and its "security"? I'm confused.

I use a Casa for few months now. That device is literally plug & play, very straight foreward.

It cost $300 but you don't need to do all the hassle by setting up a Bitcoin + Lightning node from scratch by yourself.

It's better to do it yourself really, the Casa uses a regular USB interface for it's storage and a mechanical disk, neither of which are as reliable as they could be. For always-on computers like a bitcoin/lightning node, reliability needs to be high.

There's a great device from Pine called the Rock64pro, it has a little more RAM than the Casa and can use either the SATA or NVME dedicated disk interfaces. It's also an ARMv8 SoC type of device, so all the same guides to setting the node up should work almost identically.

It's system design of LN, so i don't think it could be fixed. But the common scenario is the receiver (merchant / service) always online and the buyer/user only make send transaction, so we (the buyer/user) isn't required to be always online.

Bitrefill started offering liquidity service just like ACINQ in their recent update of Eclair mobile. Maintaining a node costs a bit so they charge you extra for that. Many people have been complaining that no one is willing to open back a channel to them. Now, it will be less problematic. The only risk here is that Bitrefill or ACINQ can close their channels any time so you don't know for how long exactly these channels are going to be active.

ACINQ has released a new update for Eclair Mobile. Users are now able to receive payments over the Lightning Network on the mainnet if their node has enough space to accept the incoming funds. ACINQ has started offering a similar liquidity service to Bitrefill. More information can be found here.

I'm confused. But Bitrefill is charging less for more channel capacity. Is this Bitrefill opening a channel to you at a higher capacity to make it bidirectional?

I'm positive franky1 is distorting facts, and gaslighting again.

500,000 sats capacity You pay 0.000403 BTC
2,000,000 sats capacity You pay 0.001341 BTC

8,000,000 sats capacity You pay 0.003753 BTC
16,000,000 sats capacity You pay 0.004825 BTC


You're buying an "empty" channel.  Within the channel, your balance begins as 0 and Bitrefill's balance is whichever option you pay for.  Which is why the channel costs less for you to buy than the capacity.  This allows people to send you payments via Bitrefill.  Taking the largest channel as an example, if you pay 0.004825 BTC, you can then receive up to 0.16 BTC from your customers, which may have otherwise been problematic to receive if your other channels were approaching full capacity.  There is categorically no fractional reserve involved.  Franky1 is a disinformation agent whose only goal is to cause as much confusion as possible.

//EDIT:  And here's an image that shows the 500,000 sats channel being initiated:



Starting share is zero.  It's not money created from nothing as franky1 would have you believe.
