What is my Strike Lightning Address?

A Lightning address is a user-friendly way to make payments through the Lightning Network. It’s kinda like an email address, as it appears in the same format of “username@example.com”, except that instead of sending and receiving messages it’s for payments.

All Strike users are automatically given their own Lightning Address, which is their username, followed by “@strike.me” (for example “jack@strike.me”). You can view your Lightning address by visiting your Account screen. You can then post your Lightning address to your social media, or share it by tapping the Share button or the “Show QR” button.

People can send you payments from their Lightning Address-enabled Bitcoin wallet, and the payment will be delivered to your Strike account as either cash or bitcoin. You can change your default delivery method to either cash or bitcoin at any time by following these steps.
