LightingHosted is an image hosting service that uses the bitcoin lightning network to share advertising revenue with users.
Upload an image you would like to share and we will give you a link. The link will show your image alongside some bitcoin-related ads. You will then receive a portion of the advertising revenue generated by those ads.
We use a small lightning network payment as a deterrent to people abusing the service. After the image recevies 100 views the satoshis are credited to your account for withdrawal.
If you have a Bitcoin-focused project you would like to advertise please get in contact with us.
This service has a zero-tolerance policy against any kind of illegal images including using copyrighted images you don't own. We also do not allow pornography. As a rule of thumb if it wouldn't be acceptable on a California beach it's not acceptable here.
We are in beta so times will vary but we make withdrawals available to our users as soon as we are paid by our advertisers.
There are a number of great lighting wallets but if you are new to lightning we recommend Bluewallet. However, as you learn about lightning you will learn that bluewallet has some limitations and you may want to move on to a full featured wallet in the future.
No, both the Lightning Network and especially this service are in beta and mistakes are bound to happen. Please withdraw often and do not trust this service with any amount of money you would be upset to lose.
Unfortuantly not very, hopefully as the service grows we can make it more accurate.
No, we believe that bitcoin is the most interesting project with the biggest chance of success, and we don't want to dilute it's network effects by supporting other more questionable projects.
