The Bitcoin network is made up of thousands of nodes that verify every single transaction in the blockchain.
Some of them mine Bitcoin too, but unlike a mining node, running a non-mining node doesn’t require expensive hardware.
Achieve unparalleled privacy by connecting your wallet directly to your Umbrel. This ensures that your wallet company can’t spy on your transactions, or even worse — lie to you.
Or connect any other wallet that supports Bitcoin Core P2P, Bitcoin Core RPC, the Electrum protocol, or lndconnect.
Install Umbrel on the hardware of your choice. After installation open http://umbrel.local to access your Umbrel’s dashboard on any device connected to the same network.
By running Bitcoin Core, your Umbrel stores and validates every single Bitcoin transaction that has ever existed and will ever exist. It’s “don’t trust, verify” on steroids.
Not only that, transacting with your Umbrel also helps keep the entire Bitcoin network decentralized; win-win!
The Lightning Network offers a glimpse at the future of Bitcoin with ultra cheap and almost instant Bitcoin transactions.
Umbrel runs a Lightning node out of the box so you can start leveraging the power of Lightning today.
Once you're up and running, tweet us a screenshot of your Umbrel's dashboard. We'll then open a payment channel to your Umbrel so you can start receiving on the Lightning Network instantly.
All services on Umbrel, including Bitcoin, Lightning and Electrum are configured to use Tor by default, thus preserving your anonymity at all times.
No more worrying about manually backing up your Lightning channels. Every time you open or close a channel, we store an encrypted copy of your backup that you can download and decrypt with your 24 secret words during recovery.
Securely access your Umbrel from anywhere in the world using a Tor-enabled browser, even from your couch.
Umbrel is available for free and all of our source code is available on GitHub.
