The services of the crypto-payments infrastructure provider Moon Pay are to be included in the ZEBEDEE gaming application, which will allow players to top up their Bitcoin balance with credit or debit cards within the interface itself.
The initial integration will allow US ZEBEDEE customers to purchase Bitcoin with their credit and debit cards. However, the scope of this integration is expected to expand to more countries and currencies, along with the ability to sell Bitcoin and receive fiat directly to a bank account.
While MoonPay provides similar services, the partnership with ZEBEDEE is different because it is based on the Lightning Network, a second layer of the blockchain that facilitates instant and almost cost-free transactions, but its use has always been inconvenient for non-technical users. , due to the difficulty of getting Bitcoin from the blockchain to the Lightning Network.
The crypto and gaming worlds are rapidly merging as the two industries prove to be a natural complement. With over three billion players worldwide, integrating cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin into games is a great way to spread mainstream crypto adoption, while providing users with a simple, intuitive, and non-threatening experience. .
“We love how MoonPay has created an extremely easy, fast, and frictionless way for anyone to buy or sell Bitcoin,” says Simon Cowell, CEO of ZEBEDEE. “The capabilities they offer are a perfect match for what we want to achieve at ZEBEDEE. And it’s a seamless experience for people to start using bitcoin without it being a burden, which is often the experience of using financial apps or exchanges for people who aren’t as keen on bitcoin. technology.
Co-founder and CEO of MoonPay, Ivan Soto-Wrightadded to that with: “What we have built with ZEBEDEE is a standout example of how crypto and gaming can come together to dramatically improve access to Web3.
“The solution we’re launching today is just the first step, and we look forward to bringing super-simple Bitcoin buying and selling functionality to millions more players.”
