Get Inbound Capacity
In order to be able to receive payments over the Lightning Network, you must have inbound liquidity to your node. To do this, you can either add Bitcoin to your Lightning wallet and open a channel with other Lightning Network nodes, or you can use a service provider that will grant you inbound liquidity for a small fee.

  1. 1.
