Bitcoin Lì Xì

In Vietnam it is customary to gift money for special occasions, especially Lunar New Year (Tết), weddings and births. The cash is typically enclosed in a red envelope (also called red pocket, Bao lì xì). The envelope is gifted, the recipient takes out the cash from the envelope. The Bitcoin Lì Xì achieves the same experience using LNURL-withdrawal QR codes that can be gifted electronically or physically.

Happy Year of the Cat!

Happy Year of the Cat!

Redeeming Your Bitcoin Lì Xì

To redeem your Lì Xì, you need a Lightning wallet that supports LNURL-withdrawal, such as:

Simply scan the QR code of your Bitcoin Lì Xì. You are shown the amount you are able to withdraw. Confirm, and the funds should appear in your wallet.


We would like to thank especially Leo Weese and the crew of the Bitcoin Association of Hong Kong for their foundational support in making the Laisee/ Lì Xì campaign a regular occurrence amidst our local Bitcoin communities.

Their continued pioneering efforts, their valuable advice, and their infrastructure support have been significant in bringing the Bitcoin Lì Xì campaign to Saigon.

Furthermore, we would like to repeat our thanks to the countless teams working on the Lightning Network, specifically LND, the team at LNbits, as well as Bitcarrot.

Last but not least we would like to thank our donors to fill the initial pot to cover the expenses of this campaign.

If you would like to support the work of the Bitcoin Saigon Community - you can donate some of your Sats to us via our Donation page!!
