I am learning about lighting now and I’m trying to check my understanding on-chain w/ a block explorer. I have opened several channels already and closed some also.
I would like to confirm my understanding of the script logic (e.g. the 2-of-2 multisig, the HTLCs, and the conditional refunds) as described in the lightning white paper and other sources.
Unfortunately the block explorers I have tried only show “OP_0 ” under the Pkscript fields for these transactions, Blockchain.com for example.
Is there any on-chain evidence of a lighting channel (before or after channel closure) or is that something that is discarded before settling on-chain?
Thanks in advance
