Hey I got a transaction with type
channelCloseMutual when I parse it on laboratory. I need to verify the transaction hash and the balances on the network. I will update here. The reason I was confused is, when I create channel, it takes time but shutdown is almost instant so I thought whether the mining happens or not. anyways thanks for pointing out those docs.
By the way this line is confusing
This can be done by either of the parties. The process is similar to the off-chain updates.
The phrase Off-chain was confusing to me because update is off chain activity whereas shutdown is on chain activity. so comparing the shutdown with update is what confusing. (this is just my personal opinion)
I am almost done with my work in payment channel, soon this feature will be integrated on the AE-Lab for people to play around with.
