A suggestion to hint for channel capacity in BOLT 11 invoices
In making payments through lightning channels, space is a factor that must be considered. However, one cannot tell how much capacity is available on which channel. Rusty Russell is proposing a change to the system that automatically attaches an ‘r’ field to any channel that has sufficient capacity to receive a certain amount. Some members of the community however think this may be risky because an unauthorized user can tell how much capacity one has and use it to attack.
