A user has lost 4BTC on LN

Here's the reddit thread:


The cause seems to be the power data fault.

In addition the user didn't know the right way to do the backup.

So guys...if you use LND, how do you backup?

What I do:

-> In case of data corruption or power fault i DO NOT reuse the .lnd directory but I recreate it from scratch with the SEED

-> Once the wallet is initialized, I import the channel with importchanbackup

-> On my system I check if channels.db is changed (MD5sum on the file) and IF YES then I export the channels with exportchanbackup on a safe device.

Do you think this is correct?

Any other advices?
