OBAndroid — The new epoch of Lightning Wallet from OmniBOLT

3 min readOct 19, 2022


In one of our previous articles, we already told you what Lightning wallets are, their features, and their advantages compared to others.

In this article, we would like to share in detail the next stage of our Lightning Wallet development and a surprise waiting for you at the end of this article. Enjoy reading!

What is OBAndroid?

OBAndroid is an OmniBOLT Lightning wallet for android devices. It provides a platform for simple, instantaneous Bitcoin/Omnilayer asset payments.

OmniBOLT is developing a genuinely revolutionary wallet that will allow users to make transfers on the Lightning network quickly and simply. Moreover, it will be possible to transfer not only BTC but in the future 700+ more OmniLayer assets.

OBAndroid is now in developer beta and will be in public beta in Nov/Dec 2022, available on Android only.

OBAndroid features?

In addition to the high level of protection and ease of use, our users expect a large number of remarkable features that will simplify the work with the wallet and bring only positive emotions. Here are the main ones:

→ OBD — LND on Android and cloud

→ Mainnet and Regtest

→ Bitcoin/Omnilayer wallet (layer 1): store, pay, receive, backup, restore

→ Bitcoin lightning payment (layer 2)

→ Omnilayer assets lightning payment (layer 2): USDT, OMNI and 700+ other assets

→ Manage local and remote nodes

→ Create and fund channels by any Omnilayer assets

→ Management liquidity

→ Create, manage and pay invoices

→ Cloud and local backup for channels.

Isn’t that cool? But that’s not all! There are many more features in development that will be launched over time. Here are some of them:

→ DEX in the wallet

→ Marketplace

→ Trading history

Additionally, the team is now actively testing and soon plans to add the “Scan — Pay — Go” function.

Technical questions

System requirements to run OBAndroid: Android 8+ 64 bits.

Full OBAndroid functionality depends on running a certain version of OBD on mobile devices. The bundled version will always come with the correct, compatible versioning. To connect to remote OBD nodes, you should check the compatibility dependency here.

The currently supported invoice format is OmniBOLT 7. Paying BTC/SATOSHI to a BOLT 11 invoice will cause the payment to fail.
