@StevenB Probably a dumb question, but I'm going to ask anyway. . .
Turns out Dave was not wrong about my not understanding this crypto stuff.
I am trying to load my CurioCaster wallet using the invoice generated in the app. When I try to send from LNPay, I get the oddest error message: "Unable to pay LN Invoice: self-payments not allowed"
Any ideas? What am I doing wrong? I imagine it is definitely PEBCAK. :)
@jennifer I'm wondering if it's because we're both using LNPay, so it sees it as paying itself. I'll have to ask TimK.
@jennifer @StevenB You can’t pay your own node. Lnpay is one giant Lightning node with a lot of virtual wallets placed on top. So if you’re paying from one Lnpay wallet to a different Lnpay wallet you would get that message if the routing hint is missing. It’ll be interesting to see if Tim has a workaround.
@dave wow, that’s very bad. I’m building V4V support on Castamatic by leveraging LnPay APIs, but this means there will be no way to stream to any podcaster having their wallet on LnPay. I really hope for some workaround.
@francosolerio Keysend works so streaming payments is fine. It’s the invoice payments that are denied. But I think Tim is working on that. No worries.
