referral link

Hey guys, the thing I would like to see in the upcoming update, is the ability to send someone a referral link to know about Alby, and let this user download and start using this amazing wallet

Clickable Account Name for LN address

ie: my ln address is peanutbutterife@getaby.com because the length of this name is longer than the view I have to open the accounts page in settings. It may be helpful if I could copy it in the initial dropdown. This may be an edge case but is a speed bump in my UX.

Is there a benefit of connecting the hedging backends from Galoy, Kollider and LNMarkets in Alby?

Galoy, Kollider and LNMarkets all provide a backend for stable sats. Can we use it in Alby to combine the three of them?
E.g. trading EURbtc for USDbtc ?

Multiple Accounts need more Visibility

Hi,

Presently I have two LNbits accounts accessed via Alby.

I would change their names, but Alby gives me no information about which accounts or servers they are from.

Clicking a recent transaction should send to that person

When clicking an entry in the recent transactions, it should prefill the send screen with that destination. That way, paying someone you already paid before becomes easier. Right now it goes to a page I don't particularly care about.

Sort Incoming transactions

Could we sort incoming trx on Alby with most recent starting at the top and older descending?

I think Outgoing trx are sorted this way, and not sure why Incoming is sorted the opposite way.

Thanks

Pay YouTubers without a Lightning Address

Shall we allow users to pay YouTube channels without a Lightning Address.
We could hold the funds in escrow until they are claimed by the Channel owner.

Recurring payments to a Lightning address

Similiar to how Patreon is used. e.g., I want to send $x per month to the Lightning address showing in the creator's Youtube profile (or in the description of one of the creator's videos).

I would want to be able to choose the currency unit for the amount though ... e.g., BTC or USD, and if USD, then Alby uses the conversion rate at the time payment is to be sent to know how much to send.

Take a fee if you want. Patreon takes from 5% to 12%), which is insane, but that's the competition so plenty of room to find find a level to make it worth adding this.

The only problem I might have is that if my sats balance on Alby is not enough at the time the payment would be triggered, I'ld hope to get an e-mail reminder to top up.

Tracking payment volumes

Any chance to Alby collect info from alby users (optional) of which sites alby users did lightning address payments?

Lightning support indicator

Any chance to implement something that make an Alby popup appear if the site I'm browsing has a lightning address?

Just with an info like: This site supports Bitcoin Lightning Payments

Send payments from Dashboard

I would like an option to make a payment to another person from my dashboard. Yes I can do it from the plugin but I should be able to do this from my Alby dashboard

Lightning Address Account Lookup

I would like a search function so I can find other Alby lightning wallet users. I created a friends new wallet but a few days later wanted to pay him but couldn't remember the address.

Return Account Balance with OAuth

When a transaction is made using /payments/keysend using OAuth, return the account balance so a subsequent call to /balance isn't needed.

SATurn - show podcast name
👷 In progress

I've pushed a few different podcasts into SATurn now, because the data is great. It would be helpful to see the podcast name, not just the episode title; and ideally be able to filter by podcast title.

Timeline player

Request to have the player follow any click in the chart to cue to that spot in the media file, just like it does with boostagrams.

Detect Lightning Addresses on forums

It would be great if Alby would detect Lightning Addresses in signatures or personal text on all forums. Forum users could send tips and that would help Alby promotion.

Add rough fee estimation before SEND

See the fee estimation, after the definition of the value to sent, or when predefined values are presented. This allows the user to make an informed decision before sending that transaction. No problem using a rough estimation of the fee (min-max stas, like showed on the image from BlueWallet). This is good to inform the user that a higher value can pay a higher fee (something not known by everybody)

Send sats option when right click on a lightning address link

Hi,

I think when we right click on a lightning address link on a website, should show on the browser menu an option to send sats.

I tested this here: https://github.com/getAlby/lightning-browser-extension/pull/1244#issuecomment-1207075938

Tried to right click on builds@getalby.com to send sats, but no option on menu.

Show boost message sent from Podverse

It would be nice to see the messages sent via Podverse in Alby. It is hard to remember what was sent when there are multiple boosts.

Tip creators on Twitch
👷 In progress

Twitch streamers can put ⚡ln@addr.es in their panels, or their user bio, and it would be sick if Alby recognized those!

--allow-self-payments option for LND backends

It would be nice for demonstration purposes, and for testing, to send payments with the --allow-self-payment flag. This could be implemented as a general Alby settings called "payments to self" or "circular self-payments" or something.

Have option to show invoice in Alby

Sometimes users don't want to pay with Alby because of some error with transaction. So they pay with another that cannot yet be connected to Alby (e.g. Phoenix).
There could be link below the payment/ confirm button in Alby: "Show invoice" . If a user clicks on it the user sees a QR code.
