If LN would allow payments without first sending a payment request (I'm hoping future versions will allow this), it could be a very cool feature for a campaign that pays for every post. Combined with a scraper, you could literally be paid a few seconds after each post!

Actually, Lightning Labs has been working on Sphinx for over a year now. lncli sendpayment command was mentioned in the LND v0.9.0 changelog so I believe it's fully working now. Note that you might have to use lncli connect before attempting to send the payment.

A hack for this which has been possible since the beginning is using circular payments.
The sendinvoiceless C-lightning plugin by Galizoltan allows this.

Otherwise there is keysend, as mentioned above.
But I wonder why everyone keeps calling this Sphinx.This is Sphinx (to me).

This is a very useful FAQ thread, but LN will need more time in order to see mass adoption, perhaps this will occur in 2024 when more people use bitcoin to buy, trade, or any type of btc tx, this will lead to people demanding for faster tx, then it will be time for LN to fully flourish.

I also understand Sphinx to have zero relationship with invoiceless lightning payments, although I've not heard anyone saying it does up until now

Not that anyone cares that much, but my node will be down again for a while later today or tomorrow as I replace a fan.
I am starting to think that it is cursed.
But at least I am getting good at yanking it apart in a hurry to re-do it.

If you are one of the few who has a channel open to me let me know if something does not come back up properly.

I am currently running an LND node (TOR). What is currently the most stable Android wallet that allows me to connect my own LND node? I tried Zap wallet but apparently there are issues with the Android version when running it on TOR.

Zeus is good.

I have never had it 100% stable on either tor or clearnet but, many people have so I figure that is more a Dave issue then a zeus issue.

No idea, I would think that it would be some connectivity issue to your node then since nothing is connecting to it.
I have no clue what to check :-(

If nobody can help you here, you might want to post on github to see if anyone can help there.

I got Zap to work but only only local ip lndconnect uri (not Tor) so I can use Zap while on my WiFi. Tor is causing most issues I suppose so I'll wait until more compatible wallets become available.

What you (likely) need is to set your LND node up as a Tor "Hidden Service". This will give your node a .onion IP address to connect to using your Android wallet, I don't think it's possible to make an incoming connection to a standard Tor IP. Using a tor hidden service is actually a really easy way to get a permanent & reachable IP address for any device, and for any reason.

To follow-up here are the setup instructions

Install tor (`apt install tor` if you are on a Debian-like >= 9), add this to your /etc/tor/torrc:
Code:
ControlPort 9051
CookieAuthentication 1
CookieAuthFileGroupReadable 1

HiddenServiceDir /var/lib/tor/my-service_v3/
HiddenServiceVersion 3
HiddenServicePort 1234 127.0.0.1:9735 # Change the port at will
Then restart it (`systemctl restart tor@default`), and
Code:
cat /var/lib/tor/my-service_v3/hostname
will give you the address of your hidden service which you can connect to.

If that helped with your remote control consider running a Tor ralay or bridgeSmiley

cloud-computing services
Slightly related: when I tried to run Bitcoin Core on a cheap VPS, it kept getting killed. This link explains how to get around this. It's written for a Forkcoin, but also worked on the real Bitcoin:
Quote
The minute the service provider sees the bitcoin daemon running they kill it.
A dedicated cloud provider that charges you for CPU cycles probably won't have this problem, but a cheap VPS will.
