I’ve been having issues with force closed channels lately too. HTLCs getting stuck and causing either my node to force close a channel or my peer force closing a channel.

I even had a channel that I purchased get force closed the next day.

LN implementations need some serious improvement before it will be ready for mass adoption.

If the LN operations can be disrupted by some RPI then it means any government can shut it down in no time. We should encourage both decentralization and anonimity. If we aren't or we cannot, then LN will become a centralized network around few nodes (running on AWS) or simply will be wiped out (or both)

Excellent eye opener article Darth, thank you so very much. I am definitely understanding now why so many issues and unstable situations still exist in the lightning network, this needs to be addressed for sure.
