Crypto owners can now shop directly on Amazon.com from Coinbase account or via Lightning Network thanks to a new browser extension called Moon which offers an alternative payment methods including Bitcoin, Litecoin, Ether or Bitcoin Cash.
Any lightning-enabled wallet can be used through Moon’s browser extension. Before this, 250 beta users have used beta version of Moon to spend crypto on e-commerce websites.
“The extension will pop up a QR code and it will have the lightning invoice, which you could also copy and paste if you can’t use the QR code for some reason, and you’ll be able to pay with your favorite lightning wallet,” Moon CEO Ken Kruger explained.
Kruger believes that Lightning Network support will be implemented on almost any e-commerce site by 2020. Back in February, the founder and CEO of Binance Changpeng Zhao expressed his belief that “Amazon will have to issue a currency sooner or later.”
