Lightning comes to Purse.io to make purchases with bitcoin on Amazon

One of the longest-lived bitcoin (BTC) payment facilitators in the ecosystem adopted the Lightning network, which will allow its users to make BTC transfers quickly and inexpensively.

With the phrase “the wait is over”, Purse.io announce on Twitter that its users can make use of the Lightning payment channel network, which functions as a second layer of Bitcoin transactions.

With a growth of 200% in one year, the Lightning network is emerging as the main tool for bitcoin payments to reach more users, especially in the commercial sector.

The adoption of this network recently reached companies such as Lemon Cash in Argentina, Foxbit in Brazil and BTCPay, new and old companies in the ecosystem.

But the adoption of Lightning does not stay at Bitcoin payment companies. A few weeks ago, the studio that designed Final Fantasy funded a project that it seeks to create a video game development ecosystem that can be powered by the Bitcoin Lightning network.
