@markcross Mixing would use more txns and thus more fees, eroding more channels, but the fee erosion applies regardless of the use case.

@kristovatlas It’s not related; my thought is that once you move funds into LN then it would be much simpler to obfuscate them.

@riprowan My limited understanding is that a LN transaction can be posted to the Bitcoin blockchain at any time, closing the channel.

@mikeinspace I believe the idea is that if LN is popular, you won’t need to settle. Just keep your funds on LN and use them to pay others.
