Q: Do I need Alby to use Anser?

Yes, Anser relies on the Alby browser extension for key management and signing.

Q: Can you see my private keys, transactions, or balances?

No, Anser is a fully client-side app; your keys never leave the Alby extension.

Q: Does Anser hold or transmit my funds?

No, Anser serves as an interface that filters and displays data from the Liquid Network. It enables you to create valid transactions that are signed by the Alby extension and broadcasted through an Electrum node.

Q: Who manages the Electrum node used by Anser?

Anser connects to the public websocket endpoint provided by Blockstream.
It's important to note that this node only provides access to public data of the Liquid Network, and broadcast your transactions to the other nodes. It does not hold your keys or funds and cannot sign or build transactions on your behalf.

Q: Is Anser open source?

Yes, you can find the source code on GitHub.

Q: Can I self-host Anser?

Absolutely! Anser is a static web app that can be hosted on any webserver, including your local machine.
