Let me tell you why you're here. You're here because you know something. What you know you can't explain. But you feel it. You've felt it your entire life. That there's something wrong with the world. You don't know what it is but it's there, like a splinter in your mind driving you mad. It is this feeling that has brought you to me. Do you know what I'm talking about?

Installing charge-lnd on GetUmbrel to automate your fee policies. Guide by The_Lorax!!

Posted about 1 year ago by sackof.w4ge.com

I've just followed the guide below to automate an hourly change to my channel fee policies:

https://community.getumbrel.com/t/guide-installing-charge-lnd-in-a-docker-to-automate-your-fee-policies/2187

I've customised the config file to set 0 base fees across all channels unless there are low sats left on my side (in which case use 9999 base fees to effectively disable routing from my side). 

All channels get a proportional fee per ppm. So if there is a high balance on my side the fees will be low and as my balance decreases the fees increase.

No more manual channel config changes :)

Moving to a new node!

Posted about 1 year ago by WolfBlitzer

Hey all, in the relatively near future (within the next month) I will be moving my channels to a new node. I will reopen each channel to everyone in my triangles. Once I do, it would be great if you would reopen your channel to me. I will post more information about the node once I have it up and running. Thank you!

Igniter2.0 for a more coordinated ignition of ROFs

Posted about 1 year ago by hippiebro

Just checkout the repo: https://github.com/ziggie1984/miscellanous.git
For big ROFs it is sometimes the case, that when you coordinate a ignite fees propagate very slowly (gossip protocol). Therefore this script has the ability to set all fees to zero, and it is only important that the channel owners has set the fees to zero too. So you can ignite a ROF more coordinated without a lot of waiting time. The script constructs a payment and sends it through the network.

Open channels to key nodes helping El Salvador's efforts

Posted over 1 year ago by LN+

IBEX Mercado, a major payment processor in El Salvador wrote on Twitter:
We are happy to announce that we have onboarded dozens of merchants with hundreds of store locations in El Salvador to be ready to accept LN/BTC payments. We would greatly appreciate some inbound liquidity to help us with the #hyperbitcoinization of the region.

Here are their nodes if you want to open to them (minimum 2M SAT):

OpenNode is a global payment processor that helps companies like McDonald's process their payments. Their nodes:

Official Chivo wallet's node:

As I come across other key players, I will add them to this post.

Perfectly balanced as all things should be

Posted over 1 year ago by Cuaritas

I developed this script for fun to  pefectly balanced your LND node as all things should be.

Note: you do not need to rebalance your channels all time, it can be expensive to rebalance some channels read this: https://lightningnetwork.plus/questions/59

Inspired by Igniter and Balance Of Satoshi. It is based on rebalance-lnd by Dr. C-Otto and uses it under the hood. It is pretty straightfoward, you can list your channels and rebalance them, some examples:

List all channels within tolerance 0.92:
./perfectlybalanced.sh --tolerance=0.92 list
or
./perfectlybalanced.sh -t=0.92 list

Default list within tolerance 0.95:
./perfectlybalanced.sh list

Unbalanced channels being rebalanced max fee 10 sats and tolerance 0.97:
./perfectlybalanced.sh --max-fee=10 --tolerance=0.97 rebalance
or
./perfectlybalanced.sh -m=10 -t=0.97 rebalance

Default max fee 50 sats and tolerance 0.95:
./perfectlybalanced.sh rebalance

Rebalance with max fee 10 sats and tolerance 0.98, ignoring channel id '761128128258703361':
./perfectlybalanced.sh --ignore=761128128258703361 -t=0.98 -m=10 rebalance

Feel free to check the code here: https://github.com/cuaritas/perfectly-balanced or keysend me 1 sat :)
