Mutiny is a Bitcoin wallet company that released a beta of the Lightning wallet on Thursday. It claims to be the first Lightning wallet on the Web.

This wallet is web-based and does not have the restrictions placed on wallets that are distributed via app stores operated by Apple or Google.

Apple has reportedly banned bitcoin products such as the decentralized social network app Damus. Apple deemed the bitcoin tipping function of that app as a prohibited payment method for digital content. The developer had to remove it. Two Mutiny founders later released Zapple Pay as a workaround to the Damus feature that relies upon emojis for tipping.

Tony Giorgio, CEO of Mutiny, says that a web-based Wallet allows for unlimited innovation and sets it apart from the competition.

Giorgio said that the main difference between our wallet and other Lightning wallets such as Phoenix or Muun was that it is a Progressive Web App (PWA). We can now ship and push updates without being restricted by the Apple or Google stores.

Mutiny’s just-in time channels are an example of this innovation. They allow you to receive and send funds using Lightning, Bitcoin’s second layer of payment network, for cheaper and quicker transactions.

Experts agree that Lightning’s Achilles heel is liquidity management. Burak Keceli , a Bitcoin researcher and developer, told CoinDesk last month that Lightning has “many problems.” But the number one problem for me is inbound liquidity.”

Mutiny also offers social tipping via the Nostr wallet Connect (NWC). This allows the wallet’s integration with Nostr applications like Damus, allowing tips (also known as “zaps”) to be enabled. The functionality can also be extended to facilitate subscription-based services and products. Nostr stands for “notes, other stuff transmitted through relays”.

The clever use of emojis to allow zaps was the basis for Mutiny’s Chief Technology Officer Ben Carman, and Chief Product Office Paul Miller’s launch last week of Zapple Pay.

Apple had threatened to remove Damus’s App Store because it allowed users to tip one another on content that was posted within the app. This practice is prohibited by Apple, which reportedly equates to selling digital media.

Damus users are still able to tip on their posts despite Apple’s restrictions, since Zapple Pay allows zaps using emojis, and emojis can be used on posts.

Miller claims that Zapple Pay is based on NWC, and it was used as a test bed for the social tipping function of the new wallet.

Miller said, “We’ve got a lot NWC-related stuff built in.” Ben and I thought Zapple Pay was a great way to try it out.

Mutiny, according to the company, is still in beta testing mode. This means that there are still bugs to be fixed.

“Some lesser known bugs exist. But we want to use caution for the time being when using this wallet,” states on its blog. Test the wallet and let us know what you think. We will be surprised at how quickly we can fix bugs and add new features.
