Bitcoin Lightning Network Explained with Layah Heilpern



  1. Holy smokes this was mindblowing for me. I had no idea how lightning actually worked – the concept of an open channel is amazing. If the balance check of each party only occurs at the beginning of opening a channel, how can we ensure that the counter party hasn't opened a channel with someone else too and hasn't spent the same funds with us and their other counterparty? Or is it a deposit at the beginning and not a balance check?

  2. so when "two users open a channel betwene them", is that between me and the merchant or me and a surrogate Visa?
    If it's between me and the merchant, does that mean I'd have to create a channel with every merchant I want to buy from

  3. Lightning network is FIAT 2.0 and leads the original concept of Bitcoin as a peer to peer electronic cash system ad absurdum.
    Just make the blocks bigger and read the whitepaper again and understand what Bitcoin is all about. Lightning network has nothing to do with cryptocurrency and is completely unnecessary.
