Aimed for spending bitcoin cheaply and privately.

Capital requirement

  • low
  • depends on spending plan and available funds
  • allows to use up unmixed funds without creating change

Channels and peers

  • one channel to a well connected, capitalized and high uptime node is a good start, see the Bos list, Lightning Terminal or Amboss.space to pick a peer
  • use private channels to avoid publishing the node and the funding transactions
  • offline private channels don't damage the reliability of the network


  • mostly local


  • not a factor (spend only when online)


  • close depleted channels
  • starting a new node often improves the onchain privacy
