Ethereum is an often requested feature, mainly because people want to offer ERC-20s.

I have debated this back and forth for some time, and I have decided against it. I have ranted elsewhere on this forum on the difficulties, but to keep it short, the main problem is the accounts model. The plugin needs all the user funds to be in one pot, not on separate accounts, because:

1. it does a lot of off-chain transactions, and
2. it helps you do cold storage, so not all funds can be online

In short, an Ethereum wallet would have to manage transfers of deposits to a central address, and that costs gas which has to be somehow managed and this is very flaky and hard to implement. But if someone is interested to implement a wallet adapter that does this, I am happy to provide help.

If what you’re looking for is to introduce custom tokens, then this is not possible at the moment.

I am planning to soon release LND support. After that, I will look into maybe integrating Tarot, which introduces custom tokens/assets on the Lightning network.

If what you’re interested in is smart contracts, then this is definitely out of scope of this plugin, and would require a different plugin altogether.

Thanks for understanding. Let me know if you have any more thoughts on this.
