I was playing with LN, as you may all know I am using lightning network with two applications one being Bitcoin Lightning Wallet and Wallet of Satoshi.

I have to channels one is about 90% empty and the other is 95% full meaning that I can received and sent funds.

I am connected in both channels with living room of satoshi node 1.

I will show you a picture so that you understand better.


So I decided to move fund from channel to the other, I did it by sending my funds to Wallet of Satoshi and latter back to my channel again so one channel has all of the fund and the other can received.

Well but here to my surprise when I sent my fund back to my channel Wallet of Satoshis charge me 2358 satoshis for sending back to me 0.00785922, at current on-chain transaction fee I would be better of sending with the tx fee instead of Lightning Network.


Now from my channel to Wallet of Satoshi I paid zero fees.

This could be wallet of satoshi fees but if every single node out there will be charging you  whatever they want pretty soon people will find out that sending through on-chain instead of a fucking node is more cheaper than through lightning network.



LET ME TELL THE WORLD TO EVERY PERSON, TO EVERY DEVELOPER OF LN AND BITCOIN CORE THAT IF LIGHTNING NETWORK IT IS JUST ANOTHER SCAM DISGUISE AS FAST TRANSACTIONS AND THAT BITCOIN WILL BE BETTER OFF WITH SCALING IN THE NETWORK. I WILL MAKE IT MY LIFE WORK TO SEE LN DEAD. I WILL MAKE IT MY LIFE WORK TO MAKE SURE LIGHTNING NETWORK DOESN'T HURT USERS LIKE ME.

Because what point there is to pay some lightning node fees when the whole bitcoin ecosystem was suppose to be fees for the miners. Now this could be that Wallet of Satoshi is the one charging those outrages fees, since I set up my friend wallet too, I will try it with him and see if the fees from his channel to my channel the fees are lower, and it is wallet of satoshi I will stop using them.

I stop using blue wallet because for routing payments from their  wallet the fees where too high, so I would not recommend using blue wallet.

Once I get a hold of my friend I will ask him to send me a large amount to my channel to see what the fees are.

I think that it may be wallet of satoshi charging that much, I will also write them and ask them why such a large fee.
