Breez and LNBits to move hundred of dollars over Lightning

This might be old news for some but I’m amped up. I’ve been moving $100 to $600 amounts back and forth between Breeze wallet and [LNbits.com](https://LNbits.com). I believe both are in beta so it’s probably unwise of me to send very much but both have worked flawlessly. Transactions tend to take about 1-5 seconds and the fee is like 20-80 sats (1-5 cents).

I mean, c’mon! A person could set up a business, have no KYC or any CC merchant fees and receive a bunch of money – all without even hosting a payment server. LNbits lets people pay via Lightning or on-chain.

Granted, in-person POS is even easier since it’s built into Breez, but if you need to send invoices to someone online then LNbits is pretty dope. Looks like BTCPayServer is probably better but I haven’t been able to get it working as easy as LNbits (maybe I’m just dumb, though – if anyone knows of a hosted solution for BTCPayServer that is free, let me know).

I remember Lightning a few years back couldn’t do this so easily. I can’t even imagine what things will look like a few years from now. The devs working on this stuff are awesome!

  1. Yes, not having to pay for payment processors is awesome.

    It’s such a huge industry that is made irrelevant with Bitcoin.

    And lightning just makes it so convenient.

    This is the beginning of the end of the big legacy financial institutions charging a % of your transactions.

  2. I looked into both LNBits and BTCPay Server.

    I couldn’t understand how to set up BTCPay using an existing full node and Lightning node. It looked like it was packaged as a turnkey, all-in-one solution, not really as a component that you can easily integrate into your existing stack.

    LNBits, on the other hand, was a piece of cake to get running with my existing C-Lightning node. The LNBits plugin for WooCommerce works fine. Little rough around the edges, but it’s good enough for a small business.
