Link Pebble wallet to your remote node!
Running your own node is both important and beneficial, it gives you better privacy and sovereignty which is what bitcoin is all about. With Pebble we allow you to link your wallet to your own LND or BTCPay server instance, effectively your mobile wallet will become a remote control for your node allowing you to have the power of a full node in your pocket at all times!
How to link with BTCPay server (LND)
BTCPay server is an awesome open source piece of software that allows you easily deploy your own full bitcoin and lightning node, as well as acting as a self hosted payment processor. We encourage users to run their own full node and give them the option in Pebble to connect to it. If you have BTCPay server or you are planning to deploy your own BTCPay server make sure to use/select LND (not c-lightning) during setup
