Watchtower support is coming to Bitcoin Lightning Wallet

What is the problem?

First I open a channel, then make 3 outgoing payments and then an incoming one. UPDATE: last (e) payment is +4, not +3.
Once (e) payment is there old states (c) and (d) would would give your peer more on-chain funds if peer were to broadcast a corresponding commitment transaction. UPDATE: last (e) payment is +4, not +3.

How watchtower improves a situation

Watchtower service has economical challenges

* Even if watchtower is not there all of a sudden you still can punish a peer all by yourself if they breach a channel and you manage to get your wallet online during the next 2016 blocks.

Storage tokens as a solution
