Tor versus Lightning Onion Routing[edit]

Please note that Tor and Lightning's Onion Routing are completely separate and independent technologies. They are similar as both use multiple hops to obfuscate origin and destination as packages travel along a route, but they are not the same. For best privacy both Tor and Lightning Onion Routing should be used concurrently. Read this Q&A for more details.

Lightning Onion Routing[edit]

Lightning Onion Routing only works in the confines of the Lightning Network. Lightning Onion Routing protects the payment routes by hiding the payment origin and the payment destination. Lightning Onion Routing does not deal with how a user or a wallet connects to a Lightning Node or a Bitcoin node.
