Manual Receiving Capacity
You have to manage your own channels
You'll likely have to have a channel with receiving capacity with us before being able to purchase through Lightning. In the future, some wallets will be fully compatible.
What does wallet usability mean?
It mostly indicates how easy it is to buy Bitcoin via Lightning through Graaf. If you’re using a non-custodial wallet for the first time, we’ll need to connect to it in order to complete a buy order; full node wallets will allow this to happen fairly simply, while mobile wallets may require a few extra steps. In the majority of cases, selling via Lightning works easily with any wallet.
What happens if the wallet I have is giving me errors when buying?
If you try buying bitcoin/creating a channel and receive errors usually this will mean that at the time, our software cannot connect to your wallet. We’d recommend trying another wallet on the “Mostly” or “Always” list.
Which wallet is the easiest to start using if I’m new?
Most of the custodial and mobile wallets are the very easy to start using. There are however trade-offs with custodial wallets if you are conscious about leaving your private keys in someone else’s hands.
