In the launch call yesterday for wave-2 pioneers, Duncan briefly mentioned something like 20 peers in our topology as ideal. Since we have to define topology ourselves, what is truly ideal? As this opens up wider in the public HTN, how should we manage who we say yes to and who we say no to for peering agreements?
We obviously can’t have bidirectional peering with 1000 other stakepool relays and still have room for the general public Daedalus and Yoroi users to have room to connect as well. Should we just pick a few nearby, a few mid-distance, and a few far away from us and hope there is nobody who ends up on the edges of the network?
