Bitfinex's investment comes after the exchange announced the launch of its own payment service called Bitfinex Pay. The new service comes as a widget that allows merchants to accept payments in cryptocurrencies. Bitfinex Pay supports payments in bitcoin, including the Lightning Network ones, ether (ETH) and tether (USDT) based on the Ethereum and TRON blockchains.
