Say Hi to automation on LiquidOps!
From monitoring to management - a tale of workflows and liquidity
From the inception of bolt.observer, we've always been passionate about data and monitoring. We've written about it, discussed it extensively, and even playfully bombarded everyone on Twitter with it. Rest assured, we'll continue to advocate for observability in the future.
Our emphasis on observability stems from its significance in decision-making. Being aware of events (i.e., observing them) and having access to historical data to identify trends empowers you to make more informed choices. As you consistently make similar decisions, they evolve into practices and eventually mature into standard operating procedures. This cycle is crucial in driving success and maintaining a competitive edge.
Whether it's businesses or individuals, everyone has a unique approach to handling various aspects of their lives, from morning rituals to critical business operations. Ultimately, these are all steps designed to achieve specific goals based on certain events or triggers. These could range from the simple ring of an alarm clock to more complex scenarios like your shop ceasing order processing due to a lack of inbound liquidity. The key is to identify and respond to these events in a manner that supports your goals and maintains efficiency.
As a user of our platform, you're likely familiar with the various alerts related to your node's liquidity and reachability that help you stay informed about its status. We're thrilled to announce the release of two new features on our platform, taking your node management to the next level. These additions will not only keep you aware of what's happening with your node but also enable you to automate actions for more efficient management. Get ready to experience a seamless and streamlined approach to node operation.
We're excited to announce the launch of our cutting-edge workflow-based lightning node automation software, designed to revolutionize the way you manage your node operations. Inspired by user-friendly platforms like Zapier.com and IFTTT.com, our new software offers a host of benefits that will undoubtedly elevate your automation game.
This innovative approach simplifies the process of connecting various applications and services, enabling seamless interactions and task execution without the need for manual intervention. By harnessing the power of conditional logic and custom triggers, you can create tailored workflows that cater specifically to your needs, optimizing the way you manage your lightning node.
What sets our software apart is its accessibility. Even if you're not a technical guru, you'll find it easy to automate your processes, fostering a more productive and adaptable work environment. With our new lightning node automation software, we're confident that you'll experience improved efficiency and the freedom to focus on what truly matters.
Presently, all monitoring alerts available on our platform can serve as potential triggers for actions.
While we already support a variety of notification delivery integrations, we're in the process of adding a comprehensive set of actions that will encompass all your node operations. The first of these new actions is being released today, so continue reading to learn more about the exciting enhancements we're introducing.
In conjunction with the new workflows, our agent has also received significant upgrades, including the introduction of its own plugin system and the debut of its first plugin. The driving force behind the agent plugin system is to empower you, our users, to effortlessly extend its functionality while still reaping the benefits of our platform's features – the data we provide, monitoring, and workflows. This combination ensures a seamless and efficient experience in managing and expanding your node operations.
Automated liquidity management (and more)
Introducing the first action plugin for our agent, in collaboration with the esteemed folks at boltz.exchange. As long-time users of their services, we wanted to gift our clients the capability to transform their business rules into smooth workflows, all while witnessing the automation of liquidity management.
The concept is straightforward: configure automated rules to manage your liquidity, and then redirect your attention to developing your own projects. Rest assured, bolt.observer will take care of node management, so you can concentrate on what truly matters.
What makes our Auto Swaps particularly special is the ability to split swaps into multiple jobs, either in case where your swap size is too big for limits of boltz.exchange (0.1BTC at the time of writing) or liquidity to your node too small to send the full amount. With Auto Swaps you can rest assured that LiquidOps will do everything possible to execute the swaps for you.
This is just the beginning of what we have in store for you. We're continuously working on adding a wide range of new plugins to our agent, empowering you to automate liquidity management using any strategy you prefer, or even a combination of multiple approaches.
In the near future, we'll be expanding our support to include additional swapping providers, such as Loop, Deezy, and more. Moreover, we'll be introducing features like automated channel opening and closing, as well as fee management. Stay tuned as we roll out these exciting new capabilities to enhance your experience.
We understand that the vast array of unique use cases employed by you, our incredible node operators, is too expansive to cover entirely. That's why we've designed our agent's capabilities to incorporate a plugin system, enabling you to create custom actions while still benefiting from our workflow capabilities and data sources.
We're eager to hear your thoughts on which plugins you'd like to see rolled out first, and what innovative actions you're considering implementing. Your feedback is invaluable in helping us tailor our offerings to better suit your needs and ensure we're providing the best possible solutions.
