Bitcoin Lightning Network Node

Will gladly provide incoming liquidity for "real" businesses or projects using the lightning network. Always interested in connecting with other nodes who want to help the lightning network - I focus on nodes, channels and value. I use a 0 sat base fee, and adjusting fee rate to encourage micro payments and to keep channels balanced. You can connect to me with a 4+ mil channel size, but I'm looking for long term 5+mil (ideally 10+ mil) partnerships. Around for the long term. Hardware 8-Core i9, 64 GB Ram, Dual 2 x 1TB System, Dual 2 x 2TB Data. Fully redundant hardware with constant backups. Full UPS with 6 hours power. Networking 1000Gbps Primary Link 5G Backup Link

This is the 4th node I've had on this site (my 9th overall but many of the first ones were just experimenting)
My first node was a raspiblitz running at home - decent internet connection, but pretty low end hardware. It worked well until i got above 100 channels and it started to struggle - poor lil guy.
My second node was a Intel NUC, also running at home. This guy had more CPU power & memory so struggled less, but still when i started adding things like an electrum server it wasn't enjoying itself.
My third node was a self-built highly available machine ... 64GB ram, 16 core CPU, dual NVME SSD storage and UPS. This was my 'sidewaysrampro' node and worked really well, coped with 100's of channels and all my associated LN/BTC apps.
Then my home got flooded the machine was partially underwater.

My 4th node is Zarch, running in a datacenter on really nice hardware. Everything is resilient and if i need more CPU, memory or storage it's easily upgradable.

The moral of the story here, is that we're all learning. You  might fine node operators close channels on you, their hardware may be struggling or even failing. Learn to identify when people are being truthful and when they are learning. People who care about coming back, trying again, but this time bigger and better - those are the people who long term will help the LN grow.

If you have had failures yourself, be honest about it .. members of the community are generally super-understanding. 
My goal with this node is to have high end uptime... months between restarts. Its IPv4/V6/TOR capable and I want to maintain a great payment/routing response time - maintaining well balanced channels to other good nodes, but also connecting with up and coming nodes to help them gain entry into the network.
