A series of posts for those considering running a Lightning Node

I’m working on a series of posts about Lightning, I’m posting mainly for my audience on the social sites built on the Hive blockchain protocol (I run a Hive <> Lightning gateway).

These posts have been quite popular on Reddit and I’ve collected the first 3 parts of Lightning Basics into a collection (with some other posts of note).

I’m deliberately provocative about the prospects of casual users jumping in and thinking they’re going to make a fortune running a routing node. But in Part 2 you’ll see I’m much more complimentary on why you still want to run your own node.
