Bolt 12 is coming and in the mean time you can use lightning addresses

and keysend. Why users ignore totally this amazing feature?

reply

Can anyone implement this with a custodial wallet? Can anyone pay to it out of the box with any mobile wallet.

reply

Using a custodian means that you are not using bitcoin. It means you are using legacy financial services. They can tell you that you are using bitcoin, but it's all just pretend.

Custodial means "is not your LN node". Please don't include those in discussion. Custodial LN wallets can simply use LN address with success, no big deal. Seems that you have no idea what are you talking about.

These two quotes seem like they are in tension. "Don't even talk about what custodial wallets can use. BTW here is one of the things they can use."

They are essential to adoption. If you like it or not.

reply

How many LN wallets you used?

reply

No. Adoption means people have to learn in order to use. If they do not want to learn... fuck'em'all, I don't give a shit about lazy NPC people.

Keysend is lnd specific (and supported by core lightning via plugin). Obviously, we need an always live node. Non custodial mobile wallet cannot handle this such use case.
