Bitcoin First: Crypto Exchange Launches BTC Lightning Network Payments
Malta-based Zebpay is the first cryptocurrency exchange to launch Bitcoin Lightning Network integration.
Crypto enthusiasts can pay for products and services anywhere around the world where Lightning is supported by copying or scanning the invoice to finalize the payment.
The maximum permitted transaction value is 0.001 BTC. Zebpay says its new wallet service bears the transaction cost for all Lightning transactions.
Launched in 2014 in India, Zebpay became the country’s top cryptocurrency exchange before being forced to shut down in September of 2018 following a comprehensive crypto ban by the Reserve Bank of India.
