Bitcoin-centric gaming startup, ZEBEDEE, announced today that it has integrated the services of crypto payments firm MoonPay.
MoonPay will help simplify the process of playing games built around Bitcoin’s Lightning Network.
The alliance will let U.S. users purchase Bitcoin through MoonPay using a credit or debit card.
In the future, the ZEBEDEE and MoonPay plan to add more countries into the mix, as well as let users sell Bitcoin through MoonPay in exchange for fiat currency.
That will make it easier for gamers who earn Bitcoin playing games to convert it into U.S. dollars or other supported currencies.
In addition to its wallet app, ZEBEDEE provides developer tools for game creators to implement Bitcoin functionality via the Lightning Network.
Last September, ZEBEDEE raised $11.5 million in funding—led by VC firm Lakestar—to further its Bitcoin gaming ambitions.
MoonPay, which enables crypto payments and also runs a “concierge” service that purchases high-value NFTs for celebrities, raised $555 million last November in a celeb-packed round that valued the firm at $3.4 billion.
