Recently Domino’s pizza, a famous American restaurant chain, has started accepting bitcoin payments (BTC) via the Lightning Network (LN) via the Lightning Pizza platform.

Currently only available in the USA for now, the new application will allow users to use Lightning Network to order Domino’s pizza, at a 5% discount, with a transaction cost of less than $ 0.01, an instant payment network, and an estimated delivery time of about 30 minutes.

The Lightning Pizza website also promotes three types of wallet lighting and the devices that can support them, namely BLUEWALLET (iOS & Android), CASA (Desktop & Casa Node), ECLAIR (Android). This to encourage the use of LN even for those not familiar with it, and push LN towards mass adoption.

The operation is very simple:

1-You place the order and delivery details

2-Pay with bitcoin through the Lightning network

3-You receive delivery status updates

4-Enter the tip displayed when the pizza is delivered

Lightning Pizza was greatly appreciated by the whole crypto community, so much so that on Twitter, those who has had the opportunity to use the LN service shared comments, photos, and videos testifying the success of the operation.

Not only that, even the most famous characters of the crypto scene have shared and commented on the brilliant idea of Lightning Pizza, including Binance’s CEO, Changpeng Zhao:

Competitors like Bitrefill, famous for its gift cards and vouchers that can be purchased through cryptos and used on famous platforms such as Amazon, took advantage of the LN success and advertised via twitter its dedicated pizza service in cooperation with Papa John’s pizzerias.

Finally, it seems that the idea of Lightning Pizza will not be limited on the American soil only. Due to the great success and appreciation received by the crypto community, the company that developed the Domino’s Pizza app has confirmed its intention to expand its services to Europe soon.
