This is really interesting stuff
Very interesting research from Rene Pickhardt that concludes the base fees for routing lightning payments add too much complexity to pathfinding and by removing them we can make more effective use of multipath payments.

Mechanicville Hydroelectric is the oldest renewable energy facility in the world that’s still running, but it was nearly dismantled as it’s difficult to maintain profitability.

@mystik @htimsxela @FreePietje @stevenroose I will take lightning any day of the week over any altcoin/shitcoin. I understand there are tradeoffs such as having to monitor channels and keep metadata backed up properly. But it is still a non-custodial solution to micropayments and will only get better as the software and protocols develop. Schnorr based payment points will be a major step up in safety and privacy: https://suredbits.com/payment-points-part-1/
@htimsxela @stevenroose @FreePietje paper gold has a much longer and well documented history of being debased and/or confiscated .. paper #bitcoin is essential what people have on custodial exchanges.. actual physical bitcoin would still probably need cell phones to verify so why not just use lightning ⚡️
