Lightning Address

A lightning node address is a string of text composed of your node’s:

  • Public key
  • IP or DNS address
  • Port

You can find your address by looking up your node on a Lightning explorer such as Amboss or Mempool and copying the address. Try searching for your nodes alias if you don't know your public key.

Here is an example:


Alternatively you can call the getinfo method from the lightning cli and derive the address from the id and address parameters from the returned object.
