chantools signrescuefunding

Rescue funds locked in a funding multisig output that never resulted in a proper channel; this is the command the remote node (the non-initiator) of the channel needs to run


This is part 2 of a two phase process to rescue a channel funding output that was created on chain by accident but never resulted in a proper channel and no commitment transactions exist to spend the funds locked in the 2-of-2 multisig.

If successful, this will create a final on-chain transaction that can be broadcast by any Bitcoin node.
