While Elon is making a jackass of himself I'm enjoying the empty mempool and opening some lightning channels!
This is a positive development. I'm hoping he's gone for good but if not it's becoming apparent to everyone that he is irrelevant and he has no power over #Bitcoin.
@lizard I fat-fingered a ~2 sat/vbyte channel opening last week. Gotta love an empty mempool, it actually confirmed just a couple days later! 😅
(I understand fee-rates well, but was picturing what someone who doesn't might think in that situation. Pretty bad UX... can't even RBF, etc a channel opening! Kinda just shit outta luck to wait for it to confirm, or eventually drop)
@lizard @htimsxela I think LND only supports RBF and CPFP for regular onchain payments. You can't RBF a channel open because that changes its txid, which is used in the presigned refund transaction needed in case your channel counterparty becomes non-cooperative before you handle even a single LN payment. You can't CPFP a channel open without your channel counterparty since a channel open is a deposit into a 2-of-2 address.
