Lightning Wallet Zap Launches in-App OTC Desk for Bitcoin Buyers
With new features from Zap, people can now buy bitcoin using the Lightning Network and reduce their reliance on centralized crypto exchanges.

"Merchants can accept bitcoin and lightning payments with the same infrastructure, except they never touch the asset," explained Zap founder Jack Mallers.
Andreas M. Antonopoulos rejoins the crew for a look at advances in Lightning technology making new-user adoption easier at a tangible, but minimal cost.
