    For newbies wanting to try out the lightning network, I only recommend them to use Muun wallet or Phoenix wallet. They're both user friendly and they allow users to send and receive bitcoin on-chain and using the lightning network, from the same wallet.

    How does one use on-chain Bitcoin without running a full node? An end-user oriented wallet. An example of an on-chain wallet would be Samourai. An example of a LN wallet would be Phoenix or BlueWallet. BlueWallet actually does both kinds.

    Muun is just a wallet. Much like BRD. Except Muun also has lightning network integration like BlueWallet and Phoenix. I just think that Muun is the easiest and works the best, but I hear that all 3 of those wallets are good. Muun allows you to send and receive bitcoin on-chain and using the lightning network, from the same wallet. But Muun is just a wallet, so it doesn't have any buy/sell functionality.

  • BTC maxis do not like when you point out that onboarding to Lightning requires on-chain transactions, which currently price out most of the world. My opinion: L1 must scale for L2 to work. | 2021-04-22

    With Phoenix you don't need to pay on-chain fees (or do anything complicated like opening channels).

  • Why aren't more people using the lightning network?
    User-friendly wallets now exist that make onboarding easy — Phoenix is great. Get some Bitcoin, send it to your Phoenix wallet, and you're good to go. If you ever want to go back on-chain, such as to exchange your funds via a method that doesn't support Lightning, just send from Phoenix to a regular Bitcoin address

    Find an open source lightning wallet you like, and search “[wallet name] contributor guidelines GitHub” and depending on the project there are explanations on how to help. For example, pheonix has a “contribute” section: , you could message in linked groups and ask how your skills might be useful, or how a non technical user and run tests and submit bug reports (often this requires some technical stuff, but no programming knowledge needed, similar to running your own node)

    We will need some Lightning Network wallet. And for beginner - the recommended one is: Phoenix Wallet.
