Features

Lightning Network Plus (LN+) is a free web app that helps the users of the Bitcoin Lightning Network organize themselves and create liquidity swap triangles, squares and pentagons, in order to create inbound and outbound liquidity, double their channel capacity, and subsequently increase their routing fees. Check out the features the site has to offer.

Nodes

Find a Swap

You can browse and filter available Bitcoin Lightning Network liquidity Swaps that are open for application. Swaps come in different shapes and sizes. Find the one that's matching your need.

Browse

Create a Public Swap

If you can't find what you're looking for, start a new Swap. You can create one with special criteria that participants have to adhere to, such as minimum number of open channels or minimum total node capacity.

Create a Private Swap

If you want to open a swap with only a group of friends, start a new private Swap, which is not listed anywhere and requires a pin code to apply.

Filter Out Inapplicable Swaps

Some swaps have application criteria like minimum channels and capacity. By default you only see the Swaps you can apply to based on your node's information in your profile that is refreshed daily. As you grow your channels you will automatically start seeing more applicable Swaps. If you want to see all Swaps anyway just change the setting in your profile.

Q&A

Get Channel Duplicate Notification

To help you avoid accidentally opening a channel to a node you're already connected to, we will automatically warn you about the situation, so you can find another Swap to join.

Apply to a Swap

If you found an applicable Swap, you can apply to it. At this point you have to wait until all the required number of participants join the Swap.

Get Notifications

You will be notified in email (if notifications are allowed in your profile) when new participants join, or if the swap is complete and channel opening can begin.

Comment

You can communicate with Swap participants in comments. Every Swap participant receives an email notification about such comments.

Get Detailed Instructions

You will be provided detailed instructions on what to do at every step of the way, to make the process easy and fun.

Rate Participants

Wait till channel openings completed or the 48 hours of deadline for opening expires, and then rank your peer on how well they complied with the channel opening promise.
