Node currently not operating. Stability of the overall setup was not good enough. Sorry everybody :(








LN+ Ratings Received:

Hubness Rank: 2404

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: 4172

Weighted for channel sizes: 558

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: 902

Weighted for channel sizes: 430

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.

Todays second incedent within a short timeframe of LND stopping to work due to a bug made me question my node.
I wasn't happy about other things as well. Tor is too slow and unstable. I had too many force closes from both sides. Multiple reports of hardware failures with Raspi Setups. 
I love lightning and will continue to use it but for the upcomming future I will probably use (partially custodial) wallet providers as they manage their node probably better than me. This trend to centralization will unfortunatelly continue. As long as lightning stays compatible, open, and non-kyc even on custodial wallets I'm still sort of fine with that. Maybe fedimints will also be an interesting option once. For the moment most funds will stay in cold-storage and if I ever feel the need to start again I would do so with an core-lightning implementation instead.

Sorry for any rings I closed therefore early.  :(
HODL strong and spend via lightning whenever possible!
