Alex Bosworth recently pointed out:
I see people connect to a "well connected" node on LN and by that they mean they connect to a node with lots of channels. The number of channels is actually a contra-indicator of a node's ability to route. Good routers curate and balance. Bad routers spam the open channel button. [Emphasis added]
What criteria should be kept in mind when evaluating nodes while opening new channels on the lightning network?
