Lightning Labs launches desktop app on Bitcoin mainnet

posted 3 months ago
Lightning Labs, one of the largest Bitcoin companies behind the Lightning Network, released its first desktop app on the Bitcoin blockchain. The app is “non-custodial” meaning that users have control over their Bitcoin.

Lightning Labs developers Tankred Hase and Valentine Wallace said “...commitment to... principles that Bitcoin was built on: privacy, security, and self-determination.” The app works on Mac, Windows, and Linux devices, with mobile apps to be launched in the future. It’s worth noting, the developers said there’s still a risk of losing money when using “an unfinished technology.”
