Tried rebuilding docker image too…


#2

Does anybody have workaround for this?
I have edited connectors.py and added bitcoind=False in last function, problem was resolved, but certificate generated was invalid due to some reason, so tried rebuilding new copy of docker image and this workaround was not working when i edited file again?


#3

If you’re using bitcoind for testnet/mainnet, then you need to make sure that bitcoind is up to date with all of the blocks. Or else when it looks up your address locally, it won’t see your funding transactions.

bitcoind=false uses blockchain explorers for retrieving / posting transactions. Doesn’t look like you have that line in your config.
