Zebedee Partners With Crypto Exchange Platform Bitnob
Zebedee, a fintech and payments processor targeting the gaming space, has partnered with crypto exchange platform Bitnob to offer payment and gaming reward options using the Bitcoin Lightning Network (LN) for African users.
African Gamers Can Earn Bitcoin
Through the partnership with Bitnob, gamers in Africa can earn satoshis through Zebedee-powered apps and games which then can be converted to local currencies such as Nigerian nairas. This helps developers replace vague in-game points rewards with satoshis – the smallest denomination of Bitcoin.
Lightning Network Fits Perfectly Into African Demographics
In general, Africa has been an attractive area for exploring Lightning Network due to its ability to facilitate microtransactions which are part of people’s economic reality in this region. Additionally, it benefits from having young demographics and being digitally native population which makes it perfect for LN’s usage scenarios.
Conclusion: Expansion Into African Market Is Promising For The Video Games Industry
The expanding presence into African markets is very promising for video game development industry since they would no longer have restrictions on sending money only within U.S., but also lose less money on engagement thanks to microtransactions facilitated by LN technology.
