Lightning Network Details - Discussion

Welcome to the discussion thread about this lecture section. Here you can feel free to discuss the topic at hand and ask questions.

@filip Will the txn be automatically updated or broadcasted on the blockchain as soon as both the people sign a transaction?

@filip What did you mean by ‘direct onchain txn occurs in collaborative close’?

It depends on the scenario. If you’re talking about the transactions being signed when payments are made IN the channel, then no. They are not broadcasted, since they are not intended to be written to the blockchain. But if they close a channel, then the TX need to be broadcasted.

Was this from a quiz? Or where is this from? I need to know the context.
