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?
bitcoin core code mirrors
my personal bitcoin git repository—which mirrors upstream branches+tags—is available through a TorV3 service on http://nxshomzlgqmwfwhcnyvbznyrybh3gotlfgis7wkv7iur2yj2rarlhiad.onion
(instructions for cloning are on the website)
i'm also mirroring it to the radicle (https://radicle.xyz/) P2P code collaboration platform:
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.
