A List Of Bitcoin Wallets That Support Lightning Transactions

The Lightning Network was launched last year. Basically, it allows you to send and receive bitcoin very quickly.

It creates a layer on top of bitcoin, enabling fast and cheap transactions which can net settle to the bitcoin blockchain.

However, to use it you need a cryptocurrency wallet that supports the Lightning Network. Here is a list of wallet apps with Lightning support:

Bluewallet

Platforms: iOS and Android

Bluewallet allows for zero-configuration Lightning Network transactions on Android and iOS devices.

Note on Lightning Wallet Withdraws

The user would expect that withdrawing from the LN wallet means having a transaction sent to your on-chain wallet. But currently the “withdraw” button forwards you to an exchange where you are expected to trade your LN balance for on-chain coins.

Spark

Platforms: Android, Mac, Linux, Windows, web browsers

In addition to mobile applications and a desktop client, Spark can also be accessed through a web browser.

Bitcoin Lightning Wallet (BLW)

Platforms: Android

BLW is a well-supported Lightning wallet app. This app is fully compatible with Bitrefill services like Thor.

Breez provides instantaneous Bitcoin payments using the Lightning Network, and is one of the first to implement Neutrino. It is a non-custodial and open-source wallet.

Wallet of Satoshi

Lightning Peach

Platforms: Linux, Windows, Mac, iOS and Android

Lightning Peach is currently the only Lightning wallet available on all popular desktop and mobile platforms. Some Bitcoiners feel the privacy in this wallet is questionable, but the BitFury team tried to address the concerns in this blog post.

Casa Node is a physical device that allows you to affordably run your own Bitcoin node. Casa Nodes are intended for use in offices and homes and provide a plug-and-play option for users interested in a personal node.
