This requires special design to be safe. Every offchain protocol requires a backout transaction to be created before the funding transaction output is committed onchain. This backout transaction ensures that the funder of the channel can back out if the other side aborts the protocol. For Poon-Dryja channels this is the initial commitment transaction. The continued operation of the protocol requires the initial commitment to be revoked at the next update. So we need a plausible backout for the receiver first. To do so, we make the funding transaction address a Taproot with internal pubkey 2-of-2 of the receiver and its channel counterparty. The Taproot hides a single script alternative, a `OP_SECURETHEBAG` that ensures it is paid out to a pure script (i.e. Taproot internal key is a NUMS point), the scripts forming a revocable output to the receiver (let receiver claim with `OP_CHECKSEQUENCEVERIFY`, or counterparty to revoke immediately if it knows revocation key). This is essentially a walletless channel open, which I described before with `SIGHASH_NOINPUT`. Channel factories using `OP_SECURETHEBAG` cannot be updated (i.e. not able to close channels and reuse funds to open new channels offchain), i.e. close-only factories. The above revocation trick only works with two participants, and it would be largely pointless to have 2-participant factories (unless you were e.g. transporting HTLCs separately from DLCs in two channels of the same factory). Channel factories based on the Decker-Russell-Osuntokun mechanism ("eltoo") allow reorganizing channels offchain, without hitting the chain at all. These need `SIGHASH_NOINPUT`/`SIGHASH_ANYPREVOUT`. For channel factories, `SIGHASH_NOINPUT` is better. `OP_SECURETHEBAG` requires the funding output to commit to a particular output set. `SIGHASH_NOINPUT` lets the signatories introduce a new possible output set later. One might compare `OP_SECURETHEBAG` to MAST, while `SIGHASH_NOINPUT` is comparable to Graftroot. MAST has a fixed set of alternatives, while Graftroot allows signatories to add new alternatives later.
