Crypto wallets

The Lightning swap app helps us to swap any cryptocurrency to Lightning bitcoin and automatically send to your Alby wallet.
The Lightning swap app was built during a hackathon and has to be considered a prototype in its very early stages. There is a lot of room for improvement and you might come across some errors. If you are reckless enough though, we would love to get you as an early adopter and hear your feedback! 🧡
Follow these steps:
  1. 1.
    You can access the app through the Alby browser extension on the ‘Websites’ screen or directly here.
