Litecoin Lightning Community Daemon v0.10.1 Launched.


Loshan, a Core developer on the Litecoin Undertaking at the moment introduced a brand new replace to the Litecoin Lightning Community Daemon (lndltc) with v0.10.1 beta.

It should additionally introduce the flexibility to open a number of channels from a single transaction which might drastically enhance effectivity on the community.

In prior variations of lnd, LTC needed to be first moved into lnd’s pockets earlier than cost channels might be opened. One other change comes within the type of an Anchor Dedication Format for on chain charges, Bryan Vu, Lightning Labs VP of product explains:

All through a lot of the lifetime of Lightning, this hasn’t been an issue as a result of charges have been comparatively low and predictable. Nonetheless, in circumstances the place a channel is likely to be open for lengthy durations of time by which charges may go up considerably, or when a channel is opened throughout occasions of risky on-chain charges, incorrect charge estimation or prediction may make emergency channel closing unreliable.”

“With a view to make lnd nodes extra strong to {hardware} or community failures, we’re making database modifications that can make it doable to have a number of copies of channel databases that may seamlessly resume transaction processing in case of an sudden failure.” … “The primary new database we’re planning to help is and so on. A associated change makes lnd itself extra modular and extra customizable by builders.”

Relating to privateness, lightning labs have made it doable to deploy lnd and Tor ‘extra safely’, in addition to including help for deploying Watchtowers by way of a Tor Hidden Service.

lndltc is a fork of lnd and the main implementation of the Lightning Community and the one model with Litecoin help making it the easiest way for customers to check out the infrastructure.
