I just finished writing an article that explains Lightning Channel construction and multi-hop transfers. Looking for anyone highly versed on LN protocols to peer review for technical accuracy before I publish. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated!

Are you going to put nothing in your article about the flaws and vulnerabilities of LN? I thought your article was going to be unbiased technological explanation but the introduction makes some biased, subjective claims about scaling and increased decentralization compared to traditional payment services. Thus I think you should balance that with a list of counter-claims against LN.

See the LN section:

I opened and made a bak copy,
I read the first 2 paragraphs and your writing skills and style sounds interesting, for instance words like "rail" have interesting meaning for our community.
Regards to the scientific method for research, I am not aware withif we do have an association like ACM, IEEE, AAAI, etc ... I would bet that maybe we are more close to IACR

Anyway a quick question do you have a preferences for scientific citation style, while referring to others  ?

for instance,

Thanks for the feedback! My goal in writing this piece was to explain how channels are constructed at the protocol layer, not to provide insight on cost/benefits of the LN itself. After hearing your comments and re-reading, I definitely agree that some of my language is (unintentionally) biased. I'm going to clean up the piece and create a more hard-lined distinction between what is inherent fact vs. claims made by LN.

I'll take a look at your post and provide insight as well!

It is hard to follow along the twists and turns of of the argument the author is trying to make. I would love to understand what the hell he is talking about.
