Which service fees apply for using an Alby account?
Your Alby account is a bitcoin lightning wallet packed with awesome features: It works out of the box, comes with a lightning address and can be connected to dozens of bitcoin apps for free.
To sustain and provide this service commercially, there are ongoing expenses that must be accounted for. That's why there is a service fee for outgoing transactions of 0.8%,leading to exciting opportunities:
Improved Service: This change allows us to continually invest in better technologies and services to enhance the reliability of your Alby account
Sustainable Growth: This fee helps us to sustainably grow and expand our offerings, paving the way for exciting new features and improvements in the future.
Run your own Node: Charging for an Alby account makes running an own bitcoin lightning node more competitive again and might even let you think about running one yourself. 😊
We want to make sure that this fee is modest and is aimed at maintaining and improving the high standards you've come to expect from us. Your satisfaction remains our top priority.
