What Is Inbound Liquidity?

The Lightning Network provides scalability to Bitcoin by allowing two or more participating parties to create a channel together, thereby allowing the seamless transfer of satoshis between one another. This is achieved through liquidity which is provided by participating parties which can then be transferred back and forth between the parties, ad infinitum.

However, this brings forth the issue of providing that initial liquidity which allows the parties to trade back and forth. Essentially, inbound liquidity is just funds that can be received from another participating node.
