ZEBEDEE, the leading FinTech and next-generation payment processor for the gaming industry, has formed strategic partnership with Pouch.ph and Bipa to enable its users to send and receive funds from any Lightning wallet or service. The open Lightning Network will allow users to easily and instantly transfer their bitcoin across jurisdictions, marking a major step towards the widespread adoption of bitcoin as a global money.
ZEBEDEE accounts will be able to connect directly to the platforms of the announced partners, enabling users to move money to and from the account with ease, similar to open-banking standards.
This new feature provides a remarkable user experience and gives ZEBEDEE users the ability to select high-quality global providers with the push of a button and start sending instant transactions across the world in seconds.
André Neves, CTO and Co-Founder of ZEBEDEE, highlighted that the innovation would enable Bitcoin to take its place as the main form of money for the modern age.
He said, “Our new feature provides a major step in that direction, as it gives our users the ability to select high-quality global providers with the push of a button and start sending instant transactions across the world in seconds.”
Ethan Rose, CEO of Pouch.ph, expressed excitement about the partnership, saying, “The Lightning Network is without a doubt the best tool for the job and, together with ZEBEDEE, we can continue pushing this technology forward to let our customers move funds between their bank accounts and any Lightning wallet in the world more seamlessly than ever.”
Luiz Parreira, CEO and Co-Founder of Bipa, also shared his excitement, stating, “The remarkably simple new user experience created by ZEBEDEE is a powerful move towards broadening our reach to more users in Brazil.”
ZEBEDEE’s new features bring it beyond the realm of simply earning bitcoin and underline the incredible innovation still yet to come on top of Bitcoin.
The company is backed by global VCs and gaming studios, including Initial Capital, Lakestar, Kingsway Capital, The Raine Group, and Square Enix.
Its sophisticated tools enable developers to create real economies in video games for players and communities, erasing the boundaries between real and virtual worlds by powering instant global payments of any size for any game, site, or application through the Bitcoin Lightning Network.
In Dec. 2022, ZEBEDEE enabled extended integration of MoonPay’s services in the ZEBEDEE app, allowing gamers in over 100 countries to top up their Bitcoin balances with a debit or credit card from within the app. This eliminates the need to leave the app and connect with an exchange, making it easier for users to manage their Bitcoin balances.
This integration makes it more convenient for gamers to participate in Bitcoin transactions, furthering the goal of making Bitcoin a widely accepted currency.
