Fiserv and Strike have partnered to revolutionize the payments industry and bring Bitcoin’s lightning network to Clover’s merchant. Through this partnership, Clover merchants will now be able to accept payments with Bitcoin and other currencies instantaneously with Strike’s Lightning network. This integration will enable Clover merchants to accept Lightning payments from any service, from Cash App to a node over Tor.
Strike, a billion-dollar company led by CEO Jack Mallers, is making it possible for merchants to accept payments across more than 200 countries. This will allow merchants to accept payments faster, cheaper, and with a “cash-final USD” over the Lightning network. Mallers made the announcement on Twitter, stating, “Lightning is live with Clover. Strike is officially an integrated partner of the payments giant Fiserv and we’ve launched our public pilot with CloverCommerce point-of-sale terminals!”
The partnership between Fiserv and Strike is part of Fiserv’s mission to help thousands of financial institutions and millions of people and businesses move money with ease. Fiserv’s baby company, Clover, offers POS systems and credit card processing, allowing users to accept payments and run their businesses with ease. With this integration, Clover merchants will be able to benefit from the same ease of use and convenience of payments that Fiserv and Strike have brought to the payments industry.
This integration is a major step forward for Bitcoin adoption, as it enables merchants to accept payments with Bitcoin, which is becoming increasingly mainstream. With this partnership, merchants will be able to benefit from the convenience of a global payments provider, while also benefiting from the speed and security of Bitcoin’s lightning network. This is a win-win situation for both merchants and consumers, and it is a major step forward in the payments industry.
