Mutiny wallet is coming! Mutiny utilizes pLN (the private lightning wallet) and offers privacy as the only option. The architecture uses Sensei as a basis. It is both cross platform and self-hostable. Mutiny offers few features but preserves privacy at all cost.
It's been a long time coming but we finally have a lightning wallet that starts with privacy first.
Have you seen the state of the world anon?
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau went full dictator earlier this year when he invoked the Emergencies Act to crack down on anti-vaccine mandate protests.
It was clear than as it is now that with no need for court orders, banks can freeze personal accounts of anyone linked to any of those protests.
Even bitcoiners were attacked.
The Ontario Provincial Police and Royal Canadian Mounted Police ordered all regulated financial firms to cease facilitating any transactions from 34 crypto wallets tied to funding trucker-led protests in Canada.
Developers to the rescue!
This created a resurgence in privacy first options for bitcoin and lightning wallets. Earlier this year we saw Super Testnet create whisper addresses.
Which leads us to the present...
Mutiny is the first private lightning wallet that focuses entirely on privacy first features. Mutiny utilizes pLN (the private lightning wallet) and offers privacy as the only option.
The architecture uses Sensei as a basis. It is both cross platform and self-hostable. Mutiny offers few features but preserves privacy at all cost.
• Spin up a new node for every channel open
• Fund channels with an external wallet, and no change!

Mutiny wallet is still being built but the promise for a privacy first lightning wallet is very important. If you would like to use Mutiny now. You would have to head over to the git to build from source, download the most recent source code and build it with
