That’s radicals amount of simplifications done in article, all real physical world limitation are ignored, no channels delays, routing ignored and simplified from 3d to line (quote: “To simplify the calculations, we will ignore the possibility that a branch on the tree could link to another branch already on the tree”), speed of light, channels limitation are fully ignored.

Almost spherical horse in vacuum
LN is anti-centralized by its nature, single node can’t relay all transactions, because of limitation: in channel, in time, in transactions, in optimial routing and etc.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?
