Eclair Adds Api Method to Check if Payment Request Has Been Paid
The eclair project, one of the popular Lightning Network clients, merged GitHub PR #312 adding a feature to check if a payment request has actually been paid. The new feature adds two methods: allpayments and payments. Both methods may be used through the JSON RPC API. By querying the node for a paymentHash, if the payment is found, then it has been received and if it is not found, then the payment has not been received.
