I'm migrating Relatively Irrelevant to new hardware, making this node Less Relevant.











LN+ Ratings Received:

Hubness Rank: 4349

Weighted for channel sizes: 5417

Lower numbers are better. Measures influence of a given node in the network. Better ranks imply a well-connected node that is linked to other well-connected nodes.

Hopness Rank: 5067

Weighted for channel sizes: 3341

Lower numbers are better. Measures how many hops it takes to reach any node on the network. The better the rank, the fewer the hops are required to reach other nodes.

Betweenness Rank: 3313

Weighted for channel sizes: 1434

Lower numbers are better. Measures how often this node falls on the shortest path between other nodes. The better the rank, the more likely the node will route a payments.

Migrating node to new hardware and public key

Posted 22 days ago

The time has come to upgrade my routing node to new hardware. I'm going to perform this migration the clean way by closing channels and starting over (I'm not going to risk funds with a database/file migration).

Old Node:
  • Gracefully and affordably close as many channels as possible
  • Force close the rest
  • Send remaining BTC balance on-chain to new node

New Node:
  • Build a new node using better hardware and configurations
  • Receive on-chain BTC balance from old node
  • Use LightningNetwork+ to open most of my channels (fewer and larger)

To all of my Lightning friends with open channels to me, all of our Channel Durations are fulfilled. Thank you for being a great channel partners. Should you wish to pair up with me a gain, please lock for new Liquidity Swaps from me. Optionally, my new Public Key is below if you don't want to wait.

Old Node:

New Node:

I expect this process to take 2 to 6 weeks, depending on swaps, fees, and my patience. I'll start in March 2023.
