BlueWallet Lightning Implementation – Bitcoin Magazine: Bitcoin News, Articles, Charts, and Guides

BlueWallet, a bitcoin wallet focused on usability and user experience, has announced its new mobile Lightning Network implementation based on the Lightning Dev Kit (LDK).

The rn-ldk implementation brings an open-source lightweight Lightning node to Reactive Native, a popular programming language for developing mobile applications. It is powered by LDK, a flexible Lightning implementation written in the Rust programming language.

One feature BlueWallet will provide its users with the new integration, which is demonstrated in the announcement, is the ability to open and fund a Lightning channel from their mobile phones directly from an offline, air-gapped hardware wallet — leveraging Partially Signed Bitcoin Transactions (PSBTs).
