Self sovereign, secure, powerful, easy to use wallet that utilizes your own Bitcoin Core node as a backend. Providing an easy to use interface to interact with your nodes non wallet capabilities. Fully Noded® wallets are powered by PSBT’s and descriptors. Fully Noded® acts as an offline signer using your node as a watch-only wallet as well as giving you full unfettered access to every wallet.dat in your nodes
.bitcoin directory. C-Lightning compatible for instant, unfairly cheap payments.
Build from source
open in Xcode and run the project on either your Mac, iOS device or simulator.
- On your mac
- Download Fully Noded® macOS
- Download Bitcoin Core https://bitcoincore.org/en/download/
- Or for best security and ease of use download GordianServer which will harden your mac for best security practices and install Bitcoin Core, Tor and C-Lightning with one click.
- Start Bitcoin Core by double clicking it.
- Start Fully Noded by double clicking it.
- Fully Noded® will prompt you to add a node. Get your
rpccredentials from your
bitcoin.conffile which can be found at
/Users/<username>/Library/Application Support/Bitcoin/bitcoin.confand add them to FN when adding your node. By default FN will add the correct address for your node, this can be customized for remote connections for advanced users.
- Once your node is added and the home screen has loaded, tap the “antenna” button on the home screen:
- Download Fully Noded® macOS
- On your mobile device
Redistributing Fully Noded® Code on the App Store
Even though this project is open source, this does not mean you can reuse this code when distributing closed source commercial products. Please contact us to discuss licensing options before you start building your product.
If you are an open source project, please contact us to arrange for an App Store redistribution exception. For more information about why this is required, please read this blog post from Open Whisper Systems.
Cost for End Users
Downloading the Fully Noded® iOS app is 100% free because it is important that all people around the world have unrestricted access to a private, self sovereign means of using Bitcoin. However, developing and supporting this project is hard work and costs real money. Please help support the development of this project!
- GitHub Sponsors
- ⚡️ Tor lightning donation (Tor browser required)
- 🔗 Bitcoin
- The preferred method of donation is via the app itself, simply tap the ♥️ button when creating a transaction and it will automatically load a donation address which is derived from a hard coded xpub within the app:
Why Fully Noded®?
- Privacy. Majority of existing Bitcoin wallets are powered by someone else’s node, this causes complete and utter loss of privacy. By running your own node and utilizing it via a Tor hidden service you are maintaining a high level of privacy.
- Security. All communications to your node are done within the Tor network, this means your IP is never exposed, your communications to your node are heavily encrypted, this is by default and not possible to opt out of. The app allows you to utilize Tor V3 authentication for first in class security, in short this means you self authenticate your device and no other device will be able to connect to your node. The app by default never uses your node as a hot wallet and instead keeps your seed heavily encrypted and securely stored on your iOS device, private keys never touch a network request, Tor or otherwise. With Fully Noded® architecture you can always keep your node completely behind a firewall and access it securely from anywhere in the world.
- Sovereignty. You are in total control, you run a self hosted server which then powers your mobile wallet. There is no middle man which can deny you access to your own server. You are in control of your private keys and utxo’s.
- Censorship Resistance. If you rely on a companies’ server to power your wallet you are inherently relying on them, they can at any time disable your connection to their servers, shut them off or be forced to deny you service. When using Fully Noded® you never have to be concerned about a third party censoring your payments, you are quite literally your own bank.
- Recovery. Users may recover any wallet with the app, simply create a Recovery wallet with BIP39 seed words and automatically recover every popular wallet in one fell swoop. For advanced users you may create a descriptor of any type and import it with the app, this allows every wallet type imaginable to be recovered. If you have existing wallets on your node which are watch-only you may add BIP39 seed words to the app to make them spendable.
