Over the last week I have set up my LN Node, threw in a modest amount of BTC, joined a number of channels (initially large nodes and lesser known nodes from 1ML, Swaps from Lightningnetwork.plus). At the moment I have a 25-30% Inbound Liquidity.
I’m really just looking to hear other peoples ideas about running a node and what is your strategy?
Things to note about my node:
- I’m not hyper-profit motivated
- interested in supporting the network and adoption
- looking ultimately for an operational strategy that is low maintenance not freaking out about rebalancing every day
- In the end (1-4+ years) hoping that the operation of the node would cover cost of creating/exiting channels and liquidity lockup.
I see that the space is emerging (e.g. the release of LNDg a few days ago), however just looking to play in this space as a hobbyist and hopefully not lose sats.
