@citizenbitcoin @cypherpunk A shame that Lightning Network won't work without massive centralized hubs that could exert censorship. https://medium.com/@jonaldfyookball/continued-discussion-on-why-lightning-network-cannot-scale-883c17b2ef5
Also the artificially crippled scalability at the BTC layer will also limit how many people can onboard into LN, as opening and closing LN channels need BTC transactions.
That article was a bunch of bunk that was debunked quickly for its bad math and then again by reality.
