Lightning Watchtower Swaps
Protect Your Funds in Offline Channels
Harden the Network Against Attacks

How do watch swaps work?

If you have a Bitcoin Lightning Node, you need to be online all the time (or at least once every 24 hours) to ensure your node can contest any potential malicious channel force closures. If you implement a so called watchtower on your node, you don't have to worry about such attacks. The watchtower service will watch the blockchain on your behalf and issue punish transactions if any breach is detected. Here on LN+ you can find a partner node who will agree to watch your node in return for you watching their node.
