The crypto startup Moon plans to bring the Bitcoin Lightning Network (LN) to Amazon.
The New-York based company has recently told CoinDesk that it’s expecting the new Chrome browser extension to be approved during the course of this week.
This will reportedly allow any Lightning-enabled network to spend BTC on various e-commerce websites.
“[The extension] will pop up a QR code and it will have the lightning invoice, which you could also copy and paste if you can’t use the QR code for some reason, and you’ll be able to pay with your favorite lightning wallet.”
People received the news with enthusiasm, and an XRP fan also seemed thrilled.
Speaking of XRP, FXStreet online publication says that XRP users have been reporting on crypto ATM in New Jersey that’s supporting XRP transactions.
There was also a video where a user buys some XRP coins with his debit card and sends them to TrustWallet.
Ethereumexchangeguide also confirms the news, writing: “There is video footage of a Ripple user purchasing XRP with a BelcoBTM cryptocurrency ATM, in New Jersey. XRP was transferred to a Trust wallet by the user.”
The firm tweeted: “Fees are a little high but still #XRP in an ATM is a gamechanger, glad to be from the first users of this service. #xrpcommunity #xrparmy #xrpthestandard #xrpthebase”
The XRP community says that this move is definitely a game changer and they have expressed their hope that this option will also become available to crypto ATMs across the whole country.
A lot of crypto voices have been saying that all that’s missing in the crypto space in order to achieve the much-awaited mass adoption are more real-world use cases of cryptos.
Other influential voices such as Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao is waiting for a massive wave of institutional investors.
