Pro Tip: Don't open channels to your release candidate mainnet lightning node while bitcoind is still doing it's initial sync.

@zechendorf thx for the heads up. Just about to toggle from testnet to main net myself. Sounds logical.

@dawie yeah. No funds lost as it seems, but it's just sensible to wait with opening channels until your c-lightning node is at the current tip of the blockchain.
Otherwise the channel partner and you are guaranteed to have misunderstandings about the funding status of your channel.
