Someone asked about Lightning wallets, and my comment was longer than I expected. I think the list deserves its own post. Please add your recommendations so I can update the list

u/nullama [asked about lightning wallets](https://www.reddit.com/r/Bitcoin/comments/p60ohh/any_good_lightning_wallets_to_start_with/h9a66ya/), and my response got a little longer than I initially expected. I spend a lot of time researching lightning use cases and current options, so please point out any options I’m missing, as I already know I missed quite a few. I’ll do some basic research about your recommendations and then add them to the list!Here’s my original comment:

There are a few nice but custodial options:

1. [Wallet of Satoshi](https://walletofsatoshi.com) is the simplest out there.
2. [Zebedee](https://zebedee.io) is a pretty cool wallet tailored to the gaming/esports scene. They will even support [Lightning Addresses](https://lightningaddress.com) *very* soon (they’re the work of the zebedee CTO after all).
3. [Strike](https://strike.me), currently US and El Salvador only, is a great way to pay lightning invoices with fiat. Yes, those lightning invoices can be your own from a different wallet, effectively buying bitcoin incredibly cheaply.
4. [Lastbit](https://lastbit.io/), which also acts as an on-/off-ramp, and even has the option for a bitcoin-backed debit card. EU only.
5. [Bottlepay](https://bottlepay.com/), which also works like Strike and Lastbit. EU only.
6. Default [BlueWallet](https://bluewallet.io/). When using their default LndHub instance, it’s custodial. See below for non-custodial options.

There are a few really simple non-custodial options:

1. [Breez](https://breez.technology), which handles channel management for you. Has a few interesting built-in features.
2. [Phoenix](https://phoenix.acinq.co/), which is very similar to Breez.
3. [Muun](https://muun.com/), which is probably the most seamless on-chain + lightning wallet out there.
4. [Blixt](https://blixtwallet.github.io/), which is incredibly feature-rich. This requires (or more aptly, *allows* you) to manually manage a full node on your phone. Also building in support for Lightning Addresses.
5. [BLW](https://lightning-wallet.com/), an android-only wallet, which is also fairly feature-rich. (recommended by u/DajZabrij)

Then there is the ultimate in self-sovereignty. Running your own node:

Popular node implementations:

1. [lnd](https://github.com/LightningNetwork/lnd), developed by [Lightning Labs](https://lightning.engineering).
2. [c-lightning](https://github.com/ElementsProject/lightning), developed by [Blockstream](https://blockstream.com/lightning/).
3. [eclair](https://github.com/ACINQ/eclair), developed by [ACINQ](https://acinq.co).

You can get a few nice plug&play solutions to simplify setup:

1. [RaspiBlitz](https://github.com/rootzoll/raspiblitz).
2. [Umbrel](https://getumbrel.com/).
3. [myNode](https://mynodebtc.com/).

After setting up your own node, you can connect as many mobile wallets that support it as you want:

1. [BlueWallet](https://bluewallet.io), with a custom LndHub on your own node.
2. [Zeus](https://zeusln.app), which works with or without LndHub.
3. [Zap](https://zaphq.io/), developed by the guy behind Strike (Note that the iOS version is discontinued and has a security flaw).
4. [Spark](https://github.com/shesek/spark-wallet), specifically to interact directly with a c-lightning node. Designed for advanced users, offering a feature set. They’re directly sponsored by Blockstream. (recommended by u/hMsats)
