Dual funded channels supported on LN+

Dual funded channels are cool because:

  • You can open a channel double the size your available capacity
  • You instantly get a balanced channel on opening
  • You share the channel opening fees


  • Both sides need to be active opening the channel roughly at the same time (within an hour)
  • You need to use a specialized tool like BOS (Balance of Satoshi)
  • You need to be on the same platform (ex. both on LND)
  • CLN version is still experimental
