    hi – working on getting this set up in the united states and it looks like https://coinpayments.net/ is not going to work. turtle seems to be completely gone? can’t tell – i haven’t found any live forks? monero seems like it might work by going through kraken? just posting here in case anyone else is thinking about this and how to get things done

    would or could coinbase work? any other thoughts for how to manage erc-20s?



    It’s true that CoinPayments is no longer available in the United States.

    You can use Bitcoin or Monero with your own full node, or with any full node that is compatible with one of these two technologies (Litecoin, Bitcoin cash, Dogecoin, etc), as described here: https://www.dashed-slug.net/howto-choose-between-available-wallet-adapters/

    There is no Kraken or Coinbase integration for technical reasons.

    There will not be any additinal support for ERC-20 tokens unfortunately. The only ERC-20 support is for a few select tokens via CoinPayments, and only if you are not based in one of the restricted countries.

    In a few days or a couple of weeks tops, I will be releasing a Bitcoin Lightning adapter I have been developing, which is compatible with lnd. The advantage here is that you can have Layer1 and/or Layer2 bitcoin transactions without setting up a Bitcoin core full node which requires a lot of resources. This is because lnd can be installed with a light neutrino client which is based on bloom filters. More on that on the blog on the time of the release. If you follow the dashed-slug on facebook or twitter you won’t miss it.

    Hope this helps. Please let me know if you have any more questions.

    with regards


    Hello am having the same problem too but I will love to try the LND I want to ask setting it up does it requires a Linux program


    Hello @cima,

    The LND wallet adapter connects to the lnd daemon, which can be run on several platforms, but mostly Linux.

    The installation instructions are available here (and are also bundled in the plugin):

    lnd Wallet Adapter extension

    What’s important is that you set it up on a server, not your home machine. Do not attempt to install it without basic system administration skills. The installation is not easy, but not too hard either. I have provided full step-by-step instructions.

    Unlike other full node wallets, the litd bundle (which includes lnd), does not require much disk space or CPU. This means you will be able to run it even on a shared host, which will be more economical.

    If you have any more questions about this, please let me know, but please don’t post here in the general discussion. The support forum for the lnd Wallet adapter is here:

    lnd Wallet Adapter extension support

    Or you can email me with any questions.

    with regards
