Autopilot is a way of automatically opening and managing channels with peers.

Warning[edit]

Alert! Be careful!
Autopilot is currently broken in lnd 0.5.2 for use on mainnet. It works, but it creates channels in ways that we really don't want to see channels being created.

Not recommended to use[edit]

  • It favors nodes with more channels
  • It divides capital to make quite small channels
  • It can only be influenced in limited ways
  • It stops working after making a set number of channels

Settings[edit]

Below settings seem to work. Update this page if you know more ;).

  --autopilot.allocation=0.9 \
