Fund Your Wallet

As briefly mentioned in the last section, your ZEBEDEE account comes with a fully-programmable Bitcoin Lightning Network wallet. What this means is that you can essentially plug this Wallet into any (and all) of your Games and it can perform any sending/receiving/paying of satoshis across your Game.

Receiving Payments

While this depends on the specific integration you have in your Game, most Games will need to send money to players at some point. And you cannot send funds to a player, if you have 0 satoshis to send. With that in mind let's walk through requesting a payment from the main Developer Wallet.

Head on over to the Wallet screen through the sidebar menu.

If you happen to be an early tester, you may actually see some funds in your Wallet as every new user receives some satoshis on signup

Choose the big + Charge button in your Wallet details.

You will be asked to provide an amount for the Charge, as well as an optional description. The description can be useful when you look back into transaction history.

The amount value is in satoshis. Remember that 1 satoshi = 0.00000001 BTC

Once you're ready, you can go ahead and press the Submit button. Once the request is returned from the ZEBEDEE servers, you should see a QR code screen like the one below:

Your charge has now been created! The next step would be to pay this Charge. This would effectively fund your ZEBEDEE Lightning Wallet.

Just a reminder that this QR Code can be paid for by any Bitcoin Lightning Wallet.

Once the payment is made, the page will automatically take you to the main Wallet view with the resulting additional funds.

If you'd like to see more details about this transaction, head on over to the Transactions tab on the Wallet screen, and you'll see detailed history of transactions like in the screen below:

And that is how we go about receiving Lightning payments through the ZEBEDEE Developer Dashboard. Let's now see how to go about making payments.
