Who is ZEUS for?

In order to use ZEUS, you must be running a Lightning node at home or in the cloud to connect to. Alternatively, it can be used without your own node, if you configure it to use lndhub accounts from other nodes (LNbits, Alby, various lndhub servers).

Currently ZEUS is for people running Lightning Network Daemon (LND) or Core Lightning lightning nodes.

Merchants using BTCPay or LNBits or Alby can also connect to, use, and manage their nodes from ZEUS. Users of LNDHub can also connect to and use ZEUS.

Starting in v0.8, ZEUS will start catering to average users who just want a simple way to make fast, cheap bitcoin payments from their mobile device by having a built-in mobile Lightning node with an integrated lightning service provider (LSP).
