According to an announcement made on Thursday, Jack Mallers, Zap Lightning wallet developer has created a new app for iPhone, Android, and Chrome which will allow its users to send and receive Bitcoin (BTC) and Lightning Network payments directly from and to the user's bank account.
The new App, Strike, is reportedly now in the public beta phase. Strike allows interaction with both Bitcoin and Lightning protocols without the need for a wallet, seed, channels, liquidity, or White Papers and also keeps the Know Your Customer protocols at a minimum.
Jack Mallers is a crypto enthusiast whose aims are to ensure Bitcoin’s mainstream adoption. In 2018 he created Zap, one of the first desktop wallets which made the features of the Lightning Network accessible through a user-friendly interface. Mallers first announced his plans to develop an App that would offer instant debit card payments via the Lightning Network last autumn. The strike App also comes with a social media profile, which enables its users to accept free payments using a QR code from anywhere in the world, each payment will be instantly converted into fiat.
