Interesting. This is why it is useful for Grinners to follow developments in Lightning and vise versa. We both have the same kind of challenges and advantages in using interactivity.
@trab Do you by any chance know a good channel/forum to stay informed or mingle in the discussion on Lightning network developments?
i keep up with bitcoin stuff mostly here https://stacker.news/
Does Lightning even work properly?
I wonder if lightningnetwork will make GRIN slatepack usage more easy-going for people.
Hopefully it will make more people aware of and interested in interactive crypto. Now most people see commiting to an address/PubKeyHash as the default for crypto, it is time change that limited way of thinking. I feel like we are still scratching the suface of all the potential off interactive crypto with Grin.
To me, the creation of this at all tells us that people want a Slatepack style experience.
Of course the difference is just that Grin doesn’t have the level of speed that Lightning has. But a lot of people really don’t care about that. They just want to use Lightning as a more private way to send one-off BTC transactions.
And in walks Grin
A simple typo and you lose your bike shed. If the simplest mistakes can have catastrophic consequences i would assume such system is inherently broken. Such projects have no right to exist, they are dangerous for users. I had my difficulties to see the benefits of interactivity but they are now crystal clear to me.
