Learn about the privacy properties of the Embedded Node + LSP

Invoice wrapping

Onboarding to lightning can be difficult and overwhelming to new users. So we've lowered the barrier to entry with a channel service from our new lightning service provider (LSP), OLYMPUS by ZEUS.

Users can generate invoices without having previously set up lightning payment channels, and have them paid and settled, nearly instantly, with our 0-conf channel service.

The LSP also provides added privacy to our users by providing them with wrapped invoices that conceal their nodes' public keys from payers.

The LSP is on by default, but users can choose to opt out of it. It is currently only available to use with embedded nodes, but we hope to extend functionality to remote nodes soon.

Simple Taproot Channels

ZEUS v0.8.0 is the first mobile wallet to include support for Simple Taproot Channels. When closing these channels, users are incur less fees and are given more privacy as they appear to like any other Taproot spend when examining their on-chain footprint.

Simple Taproot Channels can also be requested from our LSP, OLYMPUS by ZEUS.

Neutrino block filters

When checking your addresses balances, many Bitcoin wallets leak those addresses and balances to wallet provider or another third party. ZEUS doesn't.

Block sync with ZEUS' embedded node is done using block filters and the Neutrino protocol so we are given no information about our users' on-chain funds.

You can get a great technical resources on block filters over at Bitcoin Optech, and a more digestable overview over at Bitcoin Magazine.

Client-side path finding

Client-side path finding: ZEUS constructs users' lightning payment paths on their devices, so we don't know the final destinations of our users' payments, even when they're forwarded through our channels.

Not only do we not want to know how you're using your money, but we're building things in a way that we can't.

Not all wallets can say the same.
