Bottlepay launches in Europe, enabling users to “tweet” a payment

Global payments app Bottlepay has announced its launch in Europe. 

In Brief:

Bottlepay enables users to make fee-free transactions in Euro and Bitcoin. 

It is powered by the Lightning Network and is already available in the UK. 

Users can send commands via Twitter, which will then move money from one account to another. 

What does this mean?

Bottlepay uses the first ever Twitter trade bot, as an example of an increasing interest in embedded finance. The service will reportedly be available with Reddit, Telegram, Discord and Twitch over coming weeks.
