You can just register at https://coinos.io with username+password and that gives you Lightning address email@example.com.
Anyone that has a wallet that supports Lightning addresses (e.g. in Breez just paste it in the Send>Invoice menu) can then pay you.
For example firstname.lastname@example.org ;)
When SN LN Address?
I propose it here also to be integrated into Umbrel
Are these also backwards compatible e-mail addresses? While coinos.io hasn't built this feature yet, is it possible for them to (for instance) forward e-mail sent to the same address?
I don't see why not. Any email provider could support Lightning Addresses.
To run your own coinos-server, you would need to stand up your own Lightning, Bitcoin and whatever else server?
I know it's kind of against the spirit, but for people who don't want to run their own Bitcoin/Lightning/etc. servers, like a coffee shop kiosk, what are the options?
They have to use a centralized solution, like coins.io or (soon?) stacker.news.
There may be an option to have a decentralized routing scheme with bolt12, but at this point someone still needs to register a domain.
Yep, this LN address is awesome. I created several (for private usage) with my own domain too.
Here are some instructions how to do it with a federated server or with your own server
Okay, this will be the next thing I do, and it'll be just for you @nout!
