People who live in America can now order Domino’s and pay for it with Bitcoin. There is an app called Lighting Pizza that converts Bitcoin into flat currency. You can use the app to pick up the pizza or have it delivered to you.
Lighting Pizza is similar to Fold, which is another app that allows people to convert Bitcoin into flat currency. People have used Fold to pay for things like Uber, Target or Dunkins Donuts. Lighting Pizza was released on February 13, 2019. Even though it has only been around for a few days, it has already gotten feedback from customers.
Lighting Pizza is currently working on bugs that will make it harder for people to order pizza. There are many issues that can arise. For example, if there is a power issue in the restaurant, then the restaurant will only accept cash.
Will Reeves is the project leader. He stated that he created the app to show that Lighting Network is useful. It only takes 30 seconds to make a transaction with Lighting Pizza. It takes 30 minutes to get a pizza. This proves that Bitcoin has a practical use.
Lighting Pizza is only available in America at the moment. The developers are considering releasing the app in many other places. Domino’s also accepts PayPal. This makes it easier for customers to pay the bill even if they are splitting it with their friends.
Lighting Pizza is focused on making it as a startup before it brings in profit. They also want to prove that Bitcoin is more than just a way to store money. It can be used as cash.
Bitcoin made its debut in January 2009. One Bitcoin is equal to $3,381.41. It is a form of electronic cash. It is estimated that 2.9 million to 5.8 million people use Bitcoin.
