The Lightning Network (LN) is a truly groundbreaking way to move value around the globe. The number of users and LN enabled services is exponentially creeping up. Many services are opting for offering a free or fixed transaction fee, yet the real lightning network fees are neither free nor fixed. Instead, they are cheap (mostly) and variable (according to the payment route). I conducted a small research project to figure…

This can be implemented via a Bitcoin soft fork. The proposal appears well…
