What is the Lightning Network?
The Lightning Network is a “Layer 2” payment protocol that operates on top of the Bitcoin blockchain. It is designed to enable fast transactions among participating nodes and has been touted as a solution to the Bitcoin scalability problem.
What is a Lightning Address and how do I get one?
A Lightning E-mail address is a unique identifier that allows individuals to send and receive Bitcoin payments through the Lightning Network using their E-mail address. It simplifies transactions by replacing complicated Bitcoin addresses with a format that’s as simple to use as sending an E-mail. To get a Lightning Address, you can create an account with one of the apps or services that support Lightning Addresses, which will handle all the infrastructure similar to how an E-mail server such as Gmail works for your E-mails.
My wallet doesn’t support Lightning Addresses, can I still get a custom one?
Long story short: No. Our service only works for wallets with inbuilt Lightning Addresses.
Will my old address still be valid?
Does orangepilled.email have access to my funds?
No, we will never have access to your funds. We will install a redirect to your old address. This is comparable to call forwarding when making a phone call. We will never ask you for your seed phrase or login data.
