Bitcoin startup Bitrefill is launching a new service aimed at helping onboard users of the lightning network more quickly.
Cryptocurrency gift card provider Bitrefill has added a service allowing users to book Airbnb rentals with bitcoin, ether and more.
The lightning-centric bitcoin startup plans to use this funding to expand services to almost every country in the world by 2020.
Now bitcoin users can send someone a lightning payment without the hassle of setting up channels.
This may have been the first real consumer transaction using the Lightning network.
