Zero fee routing rejoins me on the show to do a post mortem on shutting down his LN node project (for now). It was one of the most connected lightning nodes in the network with about 100 BTC capacity, and over 1000 channels.

We chat:

  • Why he’s shutting it down
  • How profitable it was
  • Lessons learned
  • Why he’s still bullish on the lightning network and bitcoin
  • Security considerations
  • Would he ever restart the project? 
  • Splicing
  • Peerswap
  • Collaborative channel opens
  • Hosted channels
