Connect Voltage to the Alby Browser Extension

If you aren't ready to run your own Bitcoin or Lightning node at home or need a more reliable node to run accept payments, creating a non-custodial Lightning node on Voltage is a good option.

Step 1: Sign up for a Voltage Lightning account and create a lightning node.

1) Install the Alby Browser Extension in your browser and add your new Voltage node

2) Click "Connect" to "Other Wallets"

3) Select LND

4) Enter the credentials provided by Voltage

Click on "Continue". Congrats you successfully connected your own to the Alby Extension ๐Ÿš€

Step 4: If you don't have a lightning channel yet, you can follow this setup wizard to fund your node and open your first channel to send and receive bitcoin payments on the lightning network.

Or select "Request Channel" in your Voltage.cloud dashboard. This action will open a channel to your node. Afterwards you can deposit up to 500,000 sats to your node.

Congrats you are almost ready to spend from your own node with the Alby Extension ๐Ÿš€
