Need help

Posted about 1 month ago by Hippy55

Newbie here, I opened a channel with the person above me. Now Thunderhub is giving me error msg when trying to open up another channel. I did add more BTC to my Umbrel. Any advise would be appreciated. :(

What do you mean the node above you? Regardless, the issue you're having is that you don't have enough UTXOs to open two channels at the same time. You need to wait for one confirmation for your change from the first open to return to your wallet. Hope this makes sense.

 I have experienced the same issue too. I usually wait until the first lightning channel is open before trying to open the next lightning channel and it usually works. Explanation by LN+ makes sense.

Also, did you mean you opened a channel with the person below you (that is next alphabet) in a circular swap (triangle, square or pentagon)?
