Past Bounties

Tor support

Description: add support for Tor. There are few reasons we want to support Tor, mainly:

  1. We want to allow people to connect to other Lightning nodes using Tor (see Opening Channels).
  2. Users in some countries cannot use the app because their ISPs seem to block the on-chain traffic (Breez uses Neutrino BIP 157 to communicate with the chain).
  3. Many people use Umbrel to run Bitcoin nodes, and Umbrel uses Tor. We want to allow these users to connect to their home nodes instead of relying on the Breez node (via the Preferences > Network screen).
  4. Backup to Nextcloud/WebDav over Tor.

Payout: 10M sats (0.1 btc) for iOS and Android.

Bounty patrons: Breez (10M sats).

LNURL-Pay support

Description: add support for LNURL-Pay links and QRs. Support should follow a similar architecture to existing supported LNURLs, like LNURL-Withdraw and be tested against services using LNURL-Pay, such as Zebedee.

Payout: 1.5M sats (0.015 btc)
