Background

When starting up a Neutrino node, LND must be compiled with the experimental flag and run with assumevalid=true, or else the graph will not sync. This question has been asked in the slack many, many times, including myself, unless it is planning on changing in the future, why not document how to do it?

@sako0938 I think because Neutrino is still under testing and not ready for Mainnet.

@molxyz As of 0.8.0 Neutrino was "Supported" for mainnet

Mainnet Neutrino

Neutrino has steadily been improved, and this release contains several fixes and optimizations that make it stable enough for mainnet support. Keep in mind that it is still early, and stay craeful.

All Im saying is a release says Neutrino Mainnet is here, but there are incomplete docs about it, so it wastes LND devs time. I definitely feel "in the know" since I've been around to hear it explained like 10 times, but is that really a good use of time?

Sorry if it seems I am asking for work, and not putting work in. Its great you have your notes, but they should be fed back in to the process. I plan on using the issue to document what is needed to start a node with Neutrino backend. I will eventually make a PR if it seems stable and no one else gets there before me.

How to compile LND with the experimental flag.
Look here: #3598

How to start the node:
Foreground:
lnd --routing.assumechanvalid=1
Background:
nohup lnd --routing.assumechanvalid=1 > /dev/null 2> /dev/null &
