The Modern Bitcoin Node.

Citadel allows you to easily run a Bitcoin & Lightning node in your home, without depending on any company or cloud service provider.


Complete freedom

Citadel is entirely built by the community. It is completely open source, and entirely funded by donations. No company controls it, no secret TOS that restrict your usage, just open source code.


Built for Bitcoiners

Citadel is built for bitcoiners. Bitcoin & Lightning are deeply integrated into the user interface for a seamless experience.

We even help you get your channels backed up for free!


Secure by Design

Thanks to its strict permission system, Citadel is very secure.
All apps are isolated from each other and you decide if and how they interact.

Your node, truly your rules.
