Ready to Get Started

Get started building with the Lightning Network Today.


Key Takeaways

Voltage has launched support for Nostr! We’ve been eagerly watching and participating in the build-out of the Nostr ecosystem. Now, we’re excited to offer our services to boost the community.

Nostr Toolkit


NIP05 is a DNS-based verification spec that helps validate you are a real user. This helps prevent fake accounts from imitating you while making your profile easier to find.

As part of our Nostr services, we enable users to create their own NIP05 identifier at our vlt.ge domain. This allows everyone to create a simple identifier instead of copying/pasting your pubkey everywhere.


Zaps are lightning receipts on Nostr that allow clients to display lightning payments from one user to another.

Once you’ve created your NIP05 domain, we allow you to connect your node to your Identifier to start receiving Zaps to your node! This can be a node inside of Voltage or outside of Voltage.

Lightning Address

It is like an email address but for your Bitcoin. Send BTC instantly over the Lightning network.

Once you’ve hooked up your node to your Identifier to start receiving Zaps, your NIP05 is also automatically a Lightning Address! This means you can use your NIP05 inside of Nostr and anywhere that supports Lightning Address.

Get Started

We are excited to bring the ability to receive non-custodial payments to your node while still getting the easy-to-use tools like Lightning Address and Zaps. Now, when you see someone with a vlt.ge domain you know they are taking custody of their funds and are an active participant in the network.

Best of all, these tools are all free to use! This is ‘phase 1’ in our Nostr journey, so be looking for more.

Claim your own NIP05 Identifier by visiting https://app.voltage.cloud/nostr. We look forward to seeing you in the Nostrverse! Follow us at voltage@vlt.ge
