Let’s start with peers. A stable peer is one that passes five of six health checks, lacking only the health check around the number of good peers to be considered a “6/6 health check” routing node. It is these stable peers that are included as Recommended Channel options within the Terminal experience. With additional channel opens in their direction, these peers can improve their health check status thus improving the health of the network overall. Therefore, recommended channels give you a list of stable peers that if you open a channel towards them will become stronger routing nodes within the network graph.
