Lightning Labs, a leading developer of solutions for the Lightning Network, announced the launch of its desktop wallet in the main Bitcoin network. An application that was previously tested in a test network is available in the alpha version.

The application, which is based on the lightweight Neutrino client, is available for the operating systems macOS, Windows and Linux, however, as the developers emphasize, is still oriented primarily to the test environment. At the same time, more advanced users can also experiment with the wallet interface and get access to their funds.

The Neutrino client allows non-custodial Lightning wallets to verify Bitcoin transactions without the need to synchronize with the full version of the blockchain.

The new release includes such a function as displaying a single balance, which will allow users to see the cumulative number of coins both in the network base and in the payment channels by percentage.
