Lightning Address

Like an email address, but for your Bitcoin.

General Information

The Lightning Address is an Internet Identifier that allows anyone to send you Bitcoin over the Lightning Network. No scanning of QR codes or pasting invoices necessary.

For more information check out the website:


If you are a developer aiming to introduce support for Lightning Addresses in your application, wallet, check the DIY section.

Bridge Servers

If you don't want to roll out an entire HTTP / LNURL server on your own setup/infrastructure, but already have a Lightning node you want to use for your Lightning Address? You can use a Bridge Server to ensure your Lightning Node can properly receive payments from your Lightning Address. Check the Bridge Server instructions for a plug-n-play solution.
