Connect LND node via Lightning Node Connect (LNC) to the Alby extension

LNC by Lightning Labs in the Alby browser extension provides users with another way to link their remote LND node and enjoy the power of non-custodial lightning payments on the web leaving slow connections over tor to the past.

As a LND node user, you can now connect to Alby through the following steps:

Step1: Install the Lightning Terminal Daemon (litd) on your LND node

Step 2: Use the received credentials to access Lightning Terminal in your local web browser

Step 3: Create a new session in the 'Lightning Node Connect' menu

Step 4: Generate your pairing phrase

  • Add a label

  • Set permissions: use Admin to be able to receive and send payments via Alby on websites

  • Click on 'Submit'

The pairing phrase (typically 10 English words long) is copied to your clipboard

Step 5: Enter this pairing phrase in the LNC connector of the Alby browser extension

Step 6 (optional): If you don't have lightning channels yet, you can follow this setup wizard to fund your node and open your first channel.

That's it. ๐Ÿš€ Try it out on lightning apps in the 'Discover' section of the Alby browser extension
