  1. Can someone explain why rebalancing would be necessary? Say I open 10 channels with a million sats each. And I’m not sending any of my own sats around. I just want to grow the network right now.

    I feel like I understand lightning decently well, but rebalancing just doesn’t make sense to me yet.

  2. When using a custodial Lightning wallet such as Phoenix, one is given the option to store a mnemonic recovery seed.

    What exactly does this phrase allow you to recover? For regular on-chain-only wallets, a seed phrase allows the user to recover the private key as per the BIP39 standard. Do individual Lightning channels have a similar system that utilise a private key to sign transactions?

  3. Say I have ten 1mill sat channels open and I rebalance and spread my sats around the channels. I also never spent a sat for purchases. If I close a particular channel with less than a million sats on my side, due to rebalance, will I get back the million I started with on that channel? Or will I get back what ever is left in that channel on my side?

What do you think?
