What is a Lightning Address?

Modified on Mon, 08 Jan 2024 at 10:19 AM

A Lightning Address is a simple human-readable address that you can use to receive payments over Lightning. It is in the format of an email address (eg. satoshi@walletofsatoshi.com) so it's familiar and memorable.

Like an email address, but for money!

When you download Wallet of Satoshi you'll get a new randomly generated Lightning Address instantly!

You also have the option of choosing a custom Lightning Address in the app.
