Feature Request: Add configuration option to start lnd without the value limits


For Litecoin the current value limits the usage pegged to current about $4.80 USD, to increase those for mainnet usage would be code that later has to be thrown away.

Your environment

  • lnd version 0.4.0-beta
  • Linux name 4.13.0-37-generic #42~16.04.1-Ubuntu SMP Wed Mar 7 16:03:28 UTC 2018 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
  • litecoind 0.16
  • any other relevant environment details

Steps to reproduce

Try to initiate a Litecoin Lightning payment to BitRefill. The limit makes this impossible currently because the cheapest Steam voucher is $5.

Expected behaviour

The max value should around $380 or be the node should be able to disable the limits.

Actual behaviour

The max value is $4.80 USD.

    +1 right now LN on Litecoin is pretty much unusable without this feature request.

    Closing this as we've already bumped up for LTC.

    Max values shouldn't be set based on a USD quote. 1 BTC = 1 BTC ;)

    I'd simply use BTC until we add a feature bit to signal larger payment amounts.

    IIRC, we're the only implementation that has an actively maintained LTC mode, so perhaps we can just bump up those limits when LTC mode is active.

    That's actually what I think it should be (using the feature bit, not the USD value) just using a real life example to make the point. Is there another issue open for the feature bit? If so I can close this.

    +1 for bumping limit are for ltc. I’d run it.
