Trade Bitcoin,
keep the private keys.

Sparkswap is the first cryptocurrency exchange built on the Lightning Network. Now, you can trade Bitcoin for other cryptocurrencies in seconds without depositing assets with a third party.


Use the CLI to view your wallet balance, check the global orderbook or buy BTC with LTC

Cryptocurrency trading exposes you to unnecessary risk.

Asset Loss
