Personalized Infomation

Posted about 1 year ago by Bitnoob

     I noticed this info box on my node details. How is this info useful and what am I supposed to do with it? I think it may be a new feature, still in the trial phase. Also, not sure if other nodes can see this info as the last line is a bit concerning. 

Personalized Information
Channels with this node: 0
Number of common nodes connected to: xx (number changed to xx for this post)
Number of nodes not common: 0
Not recommended to open a channel to this node, because you connect to too many of the same nodes already.

When you visit a node, you will see:
  • how many channels you have open to the node you're looking at
  • how many nodes you're connecting are the node you're looking at are also connecting - the higher the number, the less likely you want to connect to this node, unless you have a specific good reason to
  • how many nodes the node you're looking at is connecting to that you're not connected to - the lower the number the more likely you want to connect to this node to increase your reach on LN
  • recommendation to connect or not based on the above

You should not see the box on your own node (that was a bug I fixed recently). Other nodes will see the box on your node as related to their own nodes. It's a benefit for you for them to see the recommendation, so you get channels from nodes that increase your connectivity as much as possible.

Thank you for the explanation and fixing the bug. Checked this feature in the nodes that I am connected to and those I am not connected to. 
This looks like an useful feature.
