From the Lightning torch of brewing a serious problem. What's wrong?

A user under the nickname Hodlonaut a flash mob, in which users send each other the lightning transaction, constantly adding to it a small amount. The initiative was even supported by Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey, and the transaction made it to Iran, despite sanctions and government censorship. However, the fact that every user adds to the transaction a small amount is brought to the surface unnoticeable flaw itself . Some users are simply not technically able to accept this transaction.

As noted on Twitter an anonymous Bitcoin enthusiast under the name BTChap, «#LNTrustChain was initiated as a social experiment, which due to the unexpected success turned into a stress test of the stability of the channel».

The Problem takes its roots from basics Lightning Network channels. To use Lightning, you must first send the coins in. This money needs to be on your side or on the side of the addressee.

But let's say that you collect money for services rendered, or want to take the Lightning torch. To do this, on the other side of the channel — y — must also be a certain amount of money. The so-called «member of liquidity». The problem is that your recipient is optional this liquidity.

Says Lightning is a developer known by the nickname Stadicus, this concept has not yet found wide dissemination. So some users even with large channels would be unable to learn from the torch due to insufficient «inbound liquidity».

It is worth noting that in the end, this problem will not affect the end user, because with the development of the network will increase and liquidity. However, this does not solve today's growing problem «torch», which costs the to $ 150.

According to the statement BTCChap in conversation with CoinDesk, «since the torch is getting more channels with sufficient liquidity is becoming less». Thus some users had to work hard to pick up the slack. They had to replenish the liquidity of their channels, taking advantage of new services according to the type of Thor from Bitrefill.
