My experience with the lightning network.

I, @ComputingFTW , was 193rd in the lightning torch.

I never trusted the LN for long term storage. So I tried to buy a sticker from Blockstream. My $8 balance did not make a $6 payment. I tried to order less a $4 order.

  • Payment did not go through
  • Payment did not go through
  • Payment did not go through
  • Payment went through

The strange thing is that my balance did not change. So that meant that either:

  • They decided to ship the sticker anyway without receiving payment.
  • The payment went through and my balance was not displaying correctly.
  • The network was out of consensus.

This last option would mean the the LN is DOA.

I was able to rule out the second option because I donated the remaining balance in full to Jochen Hoenicke

Now I have no lightning balance to worry about and I like it that way.
