u/nullama asked about lightning wallets, and my response got a little longer than I initially expected. I spend a lot of time researching lightning use cases and current options, so please point out any options I’m missing, as I already know I missed quite a few. I’ll do some basic research about your recommendations and then add them to the list!
Here’s my original comment:
There are a few nice but custodial options:
Wallet of Satoshi is the simplest out there.
Zebedee is a pretty cool wallet tailored to the gaming/esports scene. They will even support Lightning Addresses very soon (they’re the work of the zebedee CTO after all).
Strike, currently US and El Salvador only, is a great way to pay lightning invoices with fiat. Yes, those lightning invoices can be your own from a different wallet, effectively buying bitcoin incredibly cheaply.
Lastbit, which also acts as an on-/off-ramp, and even has the option for a bitcoin-backed debit card. EU only.
Bottlepay, which also works like Strike and Lastbit. EU only.
Default BlueWallet. When using their default LndHub instance, it’s custodial. See below for non-custodial options.
There are a few really simple non-custodial options:
Breez, which handles channel management for you. Has a few interesting built-in features.
Phoenix, which is very similar to Breez.
Muun, which is probably the most seamless on-chain + lightning wallet out there.
Blixt, which is incredibly feature-rich. This requires (or more aptly, allows you) to manually manage a full node on your phone. Also building in support for Lightning Addresses.
Then there is the ultimate in self-sovereignty. Running your own node:
Popular node implementations:
lnd, developed by Lightning Labs.
c-lightning, developed by Blockstream.
eclair, developed by ACINQ.
You can get a few nice plug&play solutions to simplify setup:
After setting up your own node, you can connect as many mobile wallets that support it as you want:
BlueWallet, with a custom LndHub on your own node.
Zeus, which works with or without LndHub.
Zap, developed by the guy behind Strike (Note that the iOS version is discontinued and has a security flaw).
