Upgrade your existing Phoenix Wallet for Splicing

Are you a beginner in the Bitcoin world, curious about fast and efficient Bitcoin payments? I highly recommend using the self-custody Lightning Wallet from Phoenix, a user-friendly option for those starting their Bitcoin journey. If you haven’t installed it yet, you can do it now with my Phoenix Wallet tutorial and you don’t need to do the upgrade that’s mentioned below.

I’ll walk you through the process of upgrading your existing Phoenix Wallet to its latest version. This update brings a key feature - the Auto Channel Management (splicing).

It’s important to know that this upgrade will close all your existing channels and Phoenix will automatically open new ones for you. But don’t worry - I’ll guide you through the entire process.

Step-by-Step Guide

  • Initiate the Upgrade: On your Phoenix Wallet app, you’ll see an option to upgrade. Tap on Upgrade’ > Prepare Migration’ to start. The app will inform you that your channels will be merged and the process is automated. It’s important not to reuse old swap-in Bitcoin addresses after the upgrade.

  • Confirm Migration: Confirm the migration by pressing Proceed’, and the app will start processing. It will close your existing channels and open a new one. You’ll see a message confirming the migration is complete.

  • New On-chain Bitcoin Addresses: Post-migration, you’ll have new on-chain Bitcoin addresses. These are now uniquely yours, no longer shared with Phoenix as in the previous setup. Congrats!

  • Channel Management: In the settings, you can now see the Automated Channel Management’ option, replacing the earlier channel list.
