Miners deploy their computers to solve resource-intensive mathematical problems-the miner that reaches the correct solution first has the privilege of adding the next block to the Bitcoin blockchain and receives a reward in the form of BTC for their trouble. Bitcoin is a form of virtual currency that can be bought, exchanged, and transferred anonymously online. So basically, it’s not quite latency optimal, but if you’re not doing anything or if you have a pending update you want to give, you can prompt a yield from them to take your turn. Also, they are almost always doing business over the web. So right now, we are just going to keep working like we’ve been doing for the past few years, try to make sure that we discuss on IRC a lot more, so that many people can see all of the small nitty-gritty details of how every feature is moving forward. It really makes the protocol simpler and it allows us to do some things that we could not do before, like imposing dynamic limits on what gets into our commitment. For example, you cannot add more than 30 HTLCs to a commitment.
And if you add one more than that, my only option is to force close basically. Mike Schmidt: Greg, did you have anything to add? Mike Schmidt: The last item from the LN Summit is about The specification process. So, perhaps a question to Greg and t-bast, how would you summarize this meta-spec process discussion? Bastien Teinturier: I think mostly that it’s starting to work fine and we’re starting to have good velocity on the spec process on some of the important features. On the spec itself, there was a proposal to move to working groups to split the specification into different working groups. So, Rusty wanted to simplify that and instead, move to a model where each side proposed updates. The prowess of Bitcoin technical analysis can be understood from the fact that when Bitcoin was trading below $1000 a couple of traders and experts had predicted that it was going to move towards $2000. That’s something that we will eventually do because simplifying the protocol is always a good idea, but it’s hard to tell when is going to be the right time. It’s always been quite unclear how much priority we should assign to that, because now that we have a protocol that everyone’s implemented and works, when is it going to be worth changing?
But to be honest, everyone’s feeling, I think, was that we’re not a big enough team of people actually working seriously on the specification to be able to split into many working groups. Some of the things you change, most of the features, you will require touching many of the BOLTs, so you cannot just have one working group per BOLT. And even working groups per features, it’s not really enough. We want to make sure that we use IRC more for day-to-day communication, and to make sure that because right now, communication has been scattered across different smaller groups who are implementing different features. For example, for implementing splicing, the splice implementers created their own Signal or Discord groups to do day-to-day discussions without polluting the main IRC channel. And we decided that we should just pollute the main IRC channel for everything, because it has been dead for a month, and there was just no activity on that IRC channel, which was really sad.
Greg, or t-bast, any other comments on channel jamming discussion? Greg or t-bast, is there anything that you think the audience would benefit from knowing about those discussions? T-bast, can you talk about the issues with either peer being allowed to propose a commitment transaction and why turn-taking may be a good idea? Currently in Lightning, either channel peer can propose a new commitment transaction at any time, and this can be simplified by introducing this notion of turn-taking. And we’ve simplified commitments. 17920 adds support for using GNU Guix to reproducibly build Bitcoin Core binaries for macOS.
