Before asking this question we would like to mention to the listeners to check also episode 2 and 4 with Soul Exporter and Czino who started the whole Rings of Fire concept before we pushed it through and it skyrocketed with our Satoshi Radio Rings of Fire community!

You are the creator of the Igniter script! The script saved a lot of work and is one of the easiest ways to perform a circular rebalance in a Ring of Fire!

This script has helped make the Rings of Fire concept possible and also ensured that novice Node Operators with little command line experience dared to try it and discover more about the inner workings of their Node!

Why did you start building the script and what does it mean to you to know that afterwards this has been so valuable to so many people in the Lightning scene?

I simply wanted to be part of a ring of fire… at the time, there was an “instruction manual”
that included many commands with redundant parameters. I just decided to simplify this,
reducing the process to a config file and a simple command to run. Made it public…
hoping it would help someone eventually. Looks like it did.


How does the igniter script works in short?

It just converts a simple config file into commands LND understands. There’s not much to
it, really.

The bio info of your node on Amboss says you’re building Lightning apps. Can you share with us what you’re building at the moment?

Mostly steer, but this app is using libraries I am also building. I sometimes use them to
build tools that may end up having different purposes… It’s a process. I have no idea
where it’s going to end up, but I am open to requests. I’d like to do my part to simplify the
life of the most routing node operators possible.

One of your goals is to bring routing nodes management more mainstream. How will you realize this ?

Starting by a mobile first web app that’s easy to use and available from anywhere using a
VPN. Command line management is not for everybody.

You are working on some mobile friendly routing node management software? Does it have a name already and can we test it ?

It’s named steer and yeah, it is available on
