Hi,
I am running a faucet site under wordpress and I wonder about to run a fulltime lightning node  for bitcoin or litcoin. I hope to listen you on this.

Hi Ranjan,
 
Sure, sounds like a good idea. Might be possible for you to earn a little money from running a Lightning node. However, it’s really too early for me to help you with how to do so. Lightning isn’t really available yet in its final form. If you’d like to experiment with it, I suggest that you follow the instructions given in the first posts in each of these 2 threads:

and
 

How to test lightning network (on testnet) from Bitcoin


 
The first is pretty easy, the second is a bit more work. Once you’ve gone through both, you should have a much deeper understanding of how LN works on a technical level. This knowledge will help you set up a node when the time is right.
