One of the most common questions we get is: "how do I run a routing node?", or "why am I not forwarding payments?". In response, today we're releasing the first part of our multi-part guide on operational Lightning routing node management by @[email protected]: blog.lightning.engineering/pos ⚡️

@[email protected] @[email protected] The thing is that Breez is getting very close to an optimal LN wallet experience:
* quick setup
* single balance
* channels invisible
* non-custodial
* innovative (connect to pay)
* great UI
* vouchers & @[email protected] integration
dev:
* ability to use own server
* RPC access

After experimenting a lot on the server and desktop side of Lightning, I’m finally taking a look at the mobile apps, and I’m really impressed by the UX!

What’s your favorite mobile Lightning wallet?

Here are the four I’ve tried so far, which others should I check out?

Our new double beer tap is ready for the first test run. Still a prototype but much better cooling and therefore less foam. Built by @[email protected] and @[email protected], powered by Zeus Server. We’ll bring it to next week. Cheers 🍻

Thx to @[email protected] on @[email protected] podcast (Hardware Wallets for Newbies podbean.com/ea/dir-n5y6x-69ac6) for pointing out something I didn’t realize about @[email protected] wallet: can’t reset PIN if you forget it. No wipe seed & start again…forgotten pin=brick. Glad I bought extra!

Synced Bitcoin Core 0.17 from genesis to chain tip (block 547,038) on this machine in 144 minutes. For perspective, that's 31GB more blockchain data than my 0.15.1 test and it's EVEN FASTER. This is a testament to @[email protected] performance engineering. twitter.com/lopp/statuses/9627

Did anyone beat the 5h 11min IBD yet?

@[email protected] @[email protected] It took 311 minutes to sync Bitcoin Core 0.17 from genesis with assumevalid=0 on this machine; bottlenecked on CPU most of the time from what I could tell.

I believe the model of routing nodes should be revenue earning because I look at old BTC companies whose marketing said they were here to help. After a while, the money in contrived coins distracted them from maintaining that help. A strong business is a motivator to keep helping
