Another Opus we're working on in c-lightning is dual-funding, so let's talk about that! This is Lisa's work, but I've been following along, and pushing to make it more general.
Today, you connect to a lightning node and open a channel, and you put all the funds in. This is simple, but it'd be better if you could both co-operate to construct a tx, especially if you could do it with multiple peers at once. This requires a generic coop construction protocol, which was fun to write...
New year, new #clightning release 🙂
I just tagged the first release candidate for v0.9.3 of c-lightning.
Your mission, should you chose to accept it, is to help us test the new version
@satnode bot will have to wait until I setup an individual instance for it or find another instance with API enabled.
Wondering if we could eventually switch from Github to a pure Git-based system, like git-appraise, i.e., tracking issues and pull requests as git notes. That'd allow us to simply build tooling on top of git instead of going through a centralized web-service.
Not the easiest to get users to use, but with good gateways exposing a simple UI to users could bridge that gap.
Would you use something like this?
The Blockstream Satellite API is an interesting way to deliver data to users. Due to the one-way transmission (sat -> user antennas), you can cover a huge area and will be received privately. There are no responses transmitted by users (it's like a radio station transmitting music to car radios), so it's impossible to determine who received it. And with error correction it's tolerant to poor signal reception.
