      Description

      The current logic doesn't allow a seed node to be bootstrapped. If a user wants to bootstrap a node configured as a seed (for example to replace a seed node via replace_token), they first need to remove the node's own IP from the seed list, and then start the bootstrap process. This seems like an unnecessary step since a node never uses itself as a seed.

      I think it would be a better experience if the logic was changed to allow a seed node to bootstrap without manual intervention when there are other seed nodes up in a ring.
