The Bitfinex cryptocurrency exchange has entered into a partnership with the service of replenishing mobile accounts and gift certificates Bitrefill.

Using Lightning Network (LN) technology, Bitfinex users will be able to purchase products from the Bitrefill catalog, which includes more than 2,000 digital gift cards and options for replenishing mobile accounts.

As soon as the user pays for the goods using Bitcoin, Bitfinex and Bitrefill automatically settle through the LN network, which makes transactions cheaper and much faster.

Bitcoin’s use as a means of payment represents an important milestone in the inevitable journey towards mass adoption. This is why the Lightning Network is so important. As an exchange, Bitfinex is at the forefront of developing solutions utilizing this technology.
