Bitcoin BTC/USD is the largest cryptocurrency in terms of market capitalization and has remained in the number one spot ever since its creation.
The Bitcoin network is one of the largest networks to truly grasp the attention of the general population and, as such, is being integrated just about everywhere.
Specifically, the Bitcoin Lightning Network seems to be getting closer to mass adoption.
Strike has announced that it will integrate with Shopify
Throughout the Bitcoin 2022 conference that took place in Miami, the Bitcoin Lightning Network is getting closer to mass adoption.
This is due to the fact that Strike, which is a global digital payments platform built on top of the BTC network, announced that it will integrate with Shopify and it will partner with the payments firm Blackhawk and NCR.
Specifically, the creation of an alternative to the traditional payments system, such as this integration, will result in a quick and cheap service that brings many benefits to the overall consumer chain and will be available on a global scale for anyone that has a Lightning Network wallet.
According to the announcement, any website that uses Shopify online card transactions can process payments using Bitcoin’s Lightning Network. The biggest retailers in America that utilize this include McDonald’s, Walmart, Home Depot and even Best Buy.
