LND shuts down, reports "tor host unreachable"

Debian 10.13
Bitcoin Core 23.0.0
LND 0.15.1-beta

I’ve never run a Lightning node before but I’ve been running a Bitcoin node for almost a year with no problems at all.

I’m trying to get LND running, but it keeps shutting down after less than a minute. I start it up, unlock the wallet and it appears to work, but then stops. (I do not have the wallet funded yet. Should that matter if I only want to start the application and connect to the network?)

The two lines that report errors in lnd.log are:

[ERR] SRVR: Unable to connect to 02a[email protected]159.89.97.171:9735: dial proxy failed: socks connect tcp 127.0.0.1:9050->159.89.97.171:9735: unknown error general SOCKS server failure [ERR] DISC: Unable to query bootstrapper BOLT-0010 DNS Seed: [[nodes.lightning.directory soa.nodes.lightning.directory] [lseed.bitcoinstats.com ]]: tor host is unreachable 

I have Bitcoin Core running over tor on the same machine and it has been working fine for many months. I’m not a tor expert and never had to do any configuring to get it working with Bitcoin Core.

My bitcoin.conf file contains:

txindex=1 debug=net server=1 rpcbind=127.0.0.1:8901 rpcallowip=127.0.0.1 rpcuser=username rpcpassword=xxxxxxxx zmqpubrawblock=tcp://127.0.0.1:28332 zmqpubrawtx=tcp://127.0.0.1:28333 

My lnd.conf file contains:

bitcoin.active=1 bitcoin.mainnet=1 bitcoin.node=bitcoind bitcoind.rpchost=127.0.0.1:8901 bitcoind.rpcuser=username bitcoind.rpcpass=xxxxxxxx bitcoind.zmqpubrawblock=tcp://127.0.0.1:28332 bitcoind.zmqpubrawtx=tcp://127.0.0.1:28333 tor.active=1 tor.v3=1 tor.streamisolation=1 maxpendingchannels=5 debuglevel=debug 

Is something missing from one of my config files?
Do I have to open a port on my router and modem to connect with tor?
Is there something else that might be configured incorrectly?

Online payment platform Maya encouraged entrepreneurs and online merchants to consider entering blockchain technology as it goes mainstream and becomes easily accessible in the country.

“So there is a lot of promises around the core technology behind cryptocurrency, which is blockchain, [as it] has a lot of promises in terms of international remittances, making it easier to buy goods and services around the world and also in terms of developing more secure and smart contracts for goods and services,” said Pepe Torres, Maya Chief Marketing Officer (CMO), said during the Franchise Asia Philippines 2022 virtual conference.

The latest Visa Consumer Payment Attitudes Survey was cited by Torres and said there is a growing interest to pay and get rewarded with cryptocurrencies.

“It is also worth noting that there is significantly growing interest in the Philippines and across the world to pay in crypto so there is increased interest, at 72 percent here in the Philippines, but also get rewarded in cryptocurrency by 76 percent,” he added.

It can be remembered that Maya rebranded from Paymaya last May 2022, a month after the e-wallet started offering crypto to its users after it partnered with the American crypto exchange Coinbase Institutional.

Maya Crypto, after a statement that it aims to be the “easiest way to start your crypto journey,” appears to have the biggest revamp: Maya confirmed that users can now buy, hold, and sell popular coins, including Bitcoin, Ether, Solana, Tether, and more, for as low as ₱1 all within the Maya app.

From that on, Maya started rewarding its mobile app users with Bitcoin and other crypto, for making transactions within the platform. 

In one instance, a student from Cebu won ₱1 million worth of Bitcoin for just making payments using the app. (For more details, read Maya Offers BTC Promo for 9.9 Sale and Student Pays Meal with Maya, Wins 1M worth of Bitcoin)

The Franchise Asia Philippines 2022 virtual conference was held on September 20 to 22, 2022 via Zoom. This was organized by the Philippine Finance Association. 

The event aims to be the gateway to the huge and consumption-oriented market in the Philippines as well as to the vibrant economies in the Asia-Pacific region. Their next event will be at the SMX Convention Center, Manila for their International Franchise Expo on October 14 to 16, 2022.
