A DNS seed for the Lightning Network. Upon first joining the Lightning Network, a node must open a few connections to existing nodes in the network. However, it can only learn of nodes that are present in the network through its peers. This Seed helps bootstrapping new nodes by indexing nodes that are present in the network and returning a random sample when queried. In addition the seed provides a way to query for specific nodes, e.g., allowing nodes to quickly find their peers even though the switched IP or port.
