Please use a fee of at least 10 sat/Byte for setting up the channel. We could Chat over sphinx.chat when it eventually works with Android with umbrel :)
I opened to ffa
pls remember to lower all fees as low as possible
@IBF you node is not visible: https://amboss.space/node/021a51ca1f15a5d31f78afe4e920cb01cdbfe36aec60aac4ad45374ce05b49c5da
@IBF please open a channel first with Node C so you becomes visible
also not on 1ml, I guess its a new node?
I should have checked before opening
@LNBully Also new nodes operators come here. Lets help them and be patient. Soon they will have a well connected node as well. If there is any problem with IBF, I will open with you the symmetrical channel.

I sent IBF a reminder email. It didn't bounce, so that's encouraging. But it's strange you can't see the node on 1ml. Is it possible to set your node to private?
your node appears when there is a public channel open to you from the network
they probably dont have any channels
Hey guys. Working to set the c-lightning feerates. I'll have the channel open within a few hours. :)
PS - sorry I'm new to lightning, so learning as I go.
I have opened the channel! It seems in c-lightning, I set the channel feerate to "slow", for the lower channel fees.
@IBF I still don't see your node.
@freedom4all I have opened a peer to your address, if this helps?
@IBF not visible. Open a channel somewhere to be visible. even 100k sat according to https://github.com/stakwork/sphinx-relay/wiki/Home-node-FAQ would be enough
@IBF I see your node but its not a good idea to set the fee so low - don't worry if you are just begining we were all there at some point.
@IBF as your node lightning address you have given only your pubkey without network address (ip or onion and port). Once your node gets visible I could check for the missing details there. Otherwise, state on the profile configuration here the missing parts.
also @ibf if you are so new, why are you deploying so much capital?
@IBF It is possible to push the channel opening transaction using Child Pays for Parent (CPFP), by creating a high fee tx (50 sat/Byte) using the change utxo manually, or using Ride The Lightning -> Lightning -> Peers/Channels -> Channels -> Pending -> Bump Fee
Otherwise, open a second channel somewhere well connected with a more suitable fee, for visibility.
@ibf if you don't make the channel clear by the deadline then I will close my channel and cancel the swap. Sorry, but this isn't worth my time or my liquidity.
@routingroot - I offer that after deadline, I skip IBF and open a channel to you, so we have a simple symmetrical liquidity exchange. I see that our nodes have similar ranking according to 1ml.com and we don't share too many common neighbors.
I would also suggest to remove the positive rating until things are clear.
I thought we couldn't do that? if it works then sure
sure, this platform is only a match maker helping us to find each other. you can find me on sphinx.chat and we can text there on top of our channels.
I have sphinx chat too but I prefer telegram, do you have that? I find that the desktop client is unstable, not ready to give it another go yet.
I am using android with umbrel. https://github.com/stakwork/sphinx-kotlin/releases Basic functionality works, and then only my pubkey is exposed, which you already know.
@routingroot - it seems you demand a fee of 100000 satoshi base fee and then satoshi fee per satoshi sent on the channel with me. I find it a little expensive...
yea its on purpose so that nobody uses it, I am waiting for IBF channel to confirm then I can rebalance
It can take so long that somebody can take advantage of the cheap liquidity
Yea, choosing "slow" was a BAD choice. The current on-chain fees and tps are killing. I did submit a CPFP about 1hr ago. Using "Slow" set my fee to just 1.2sat/vb! My CPFP transaction now has me at a 16sat/vb average..
@Freedom4all - I updated my profile to include the full onion routing address as well
@IBF I explained to b21 the calculation of average fee in CPFP on https://lightningnetwork.plus/swaps/36 and you can verify yourself what your average fee is (using a weighted average according to virtual size), and also explained how to bump the fee further using RBF. There the calculation was 200 sat/Byte which turns out to be 8 USD. This gives average of 65 sat/Byte which will be confirmed today. Otherwise, you have to wait for the storm to pass, and I am not sure how patient is routingroot.
@IBF also your profile page doesn't generate a qrcode, so there must be something wrong there as well.
After another CPFP channel is FINALLY funded onchain. Most expensive collection of BTC transactions I've ever done...
@fredom4all - it looks like that QR is actually via 1ML, so this will likely get sorted out as my channels become confirmed.
I was trying to open the channel with you now, and got this:
Unable to connect to peer, socks connect tcp 10.21.21.11:9050->xiagrqrgouls6rm34ht5tyr2h2g2mpulqfdjn2sklwifulmzaqfonlad.onion:9735: unknown error connection refused
is your node online?
@freedom4all - thanks for info. I found my tor proxy is actually port 9737, for outside facing. I have updated my profile link, and pasted here as well: firstname.lastname@example.org:9737
Thanks for heads up!
I managed to initiate a channel opening to you.
Sweet! I see it too. Thanks for all the help!
@ibf thanks! I see your pubkey can you use an alias?
ok so now make sure all your fees are super low and I will rebalance it with bos on the CLI
I'm actually struggling to get it to rebalance with bos or thunderhub idk why
@routingroot - looks like it's at 1000msat base, and 10msat fee_rate. Is this good? or a recommendation?
I do have an alias set in lightning, but I've noticed it can take nodex a few minutes to populate in my RTL. - if this is what you mean by setting an alias?
I see your fee, and matched it!
yea I just see your pubkey - which is fine but alias is better
well right now I need to rebalance and I can't figure out what's wrong
