Voyager, an independent project developing a simple browser extension and web custodial wallet to receive and manage Bitcoin (BTC) through the Lightning Network, reportedly has over 14,000 signups since launching 3 months ago.

According to research by crypto analyst Kevin Rooke that was confirmed by Tippin creator Sergio Abril, the app has seen some notable growth and adoption:

  • 15,000 tips sent
  • 14,000 signups
  • 4,000 browser extensions installed
  • 564 Lightning Network channels connected
  • $31,000+ in potential transaction capacity

A fair amount of this growth is likely due to the apps recent overlay integration with Twitter (TWTR) via a Chrome extension that allows users to send and receive small bitcoin tips directly on the platform. Chrome Store data shows 3,746 users have installed the extension. ranks 8 on the LN explorer’s total channel list (Casa)

As we first reported, the idea for a Lightning Network tipping overlay for Twitter quickly gained popularity on CT last month after Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey said he loved the idea.

Since that time, Dorsey and other heavy hitters in crypto, tech and venture capital have all publicly revealed that they have downloaded Tippin, contributing to the growth of the Lightning Network.
