Lightning is complicated, difficult to use, sometimes doesn’t work properly, requires a lot of learning and experimentation, and is still a risky place to hold Bitcoin funds.

Find out all the ways I find Lightning *doesn’t* do its job well, & what I think it means for the future in today’s Guy’s Take episode!
