Crypto Asset Purchase
Last year, Coinbase merged with Google Pay and Apple Pay, permitting people to purchase crypto assets on their platforms. This move lets US citizens buy the asset using bank-issued credit and debit cards through Apple Pay. In last year June, Coinbase launched Coinbase Card, where all the cryptos will be automatically converted to USD and will be transferred to your Coinbase card for purchase and ATM withdrawals.
Twitter's Cash App
While Apple Pay most likely won't permit the direct purchase of services and goods through BTC, it will convert the user's cryptos to match the USD demanded by the merchant's sale point machine for purchase. This feature will be launched on Apple Store, iPhone XS, and later series models.
A mobile payment service developed by Jack Dorsey's (Twitter) Block-Cash App announced the compatibility with the Bitcoin Lightning Network for BTC transfers. With the latest launch, users can make swift transactions across mainstream ventures.
