App-enabled cryptocurrency exchange and wallet provider, Zebpay, has announced that it is enabling Lightning Network payments for all its users. The best part of the news? Zebpay claim that it will even pay the fees for Lightning transactions made through its wallet.
The Inexorable Advance Of Lightning Network
Despite its ‘still very much experimental’ nature, Lightning Network is growing fast, and its integration into mainstream services continues. The announcement from Malta-based Zebpay, once India’s largest cryptocurrency exchange, claims to mark the first acceptance of LN payments by a major exchange.
Available through web, iOS, and Android apps, customers worldwide can now use BTC wallet balances to make Lightning transactions. Zebpay particularly emphasises using the service for purchases at Lightning enabled retailers, claiming users can:
buy virtually anything by identifying the store, copying or scanning the invoice of the product or service, and finalizing the payment — all within milliseconds.
