I’m pleasantly surprised that there is now so much activity on Lightning that my own little node is now routing more than $10,000/month. I don’t have any idea what these transactions are related to. I’m getting paid 0.25% for routing.

I’m Dumb, Don’t Get Scammed Like Me

I recently went to send a small amount of bitcoin to my lightning wallet. I searched for "generate qr code for bitcoin" on duckduckgo.com and clicked on https://bitcoinqrcodegenerator(dot)win/. Turns out this site is a scam that alters what was on your clipboard and sends your bitcoin to a different address. I'm very embarrassed at my carelessness, but relieved that I only lost about $ 50. A few lessons I took away from this:

  1. Always check that the address you paste matches the one you copied (I know, this is obvious, but still).
  2. duckduckgo.com has a built in QR Code generator, simply type the letters "qr" followed by the address you want a QR code for.
  3. When you do make a stupid mistake, share it with others so they don't get ripped off too.
