In September, we launched the Strike API with @Twitter. Today, we're widening access to our Creators API, inviting more developers to enable free, instant, global payments on top of the world's open monetary network, #Bitcoin Developers, let's do this: developer.strike.me/en/api
I just published Announcing the Strike API Today, @Twitter enables free, instant, global payments for their users with their integration of the Strike API. What the internet did for communication, #Bitcoin + the Lightning Network is doing for money. link.medium.com/KwMP19g6Mjb

The Strike API enables free, instant, global payments of any size, from anywhere, by anyone. When was the last time an Argentine developer built an instant micropayment service for @CashApp users? Trick question. Never. Only possible with #Bitcoin and the Lightning Network.

There are no minimums, no swipe fees, and no interchange with the Strike API. #Bitcoin is the only monetary network in human history that can settle micropayments globally, between any service, instantly and at no cost. This enables payment experiences never possible before.

What if, for example, you could create an invoice that charged a penny for access to content? What if that invoice was payable by anyone, anywhere in the world, instantly and at no cost? What if when that invoice was paid, you received the penny instantly? No delays. No fees.

In a hackathon, a few employees built plebpay.com, allowing any Strike account to create an invoice of any size, payable by anyone, for anything. In 7th grade, I made a really embarrassing YouTube video. You can now watch it for a penny 😃 plebpay.com/55b02dbd-5b48-48…

As the creator, I get an instantly settled penny every time the invoice is paid. I can buy #Bitcoin with that penny. I can withdraw that penny to my bank. Once the Strike Card is launched, I can walk to the grocery store and buy groceries with these pennies 🤯

No other monetary network offers a global + open interoperable payment standard that settles a penny instantly and at no cost. Not VISA. Not Western Union. Only #Bitcoin + Lightning. Here I pay an invoice with my @MuunWallet Is there a second-best? Worth every penny, @saylor

PlebPay only took us 4 hours to build on the Strike API. This is just the beginning. What innovation is the world going to deliver with an API that enables seamless, global, instant, and free payments of any size on an open monetary network? Well, we're about to find out.

If you have a Strike account and would like to integrate instant, free, global payments, let me know. Get access by selecting "Creator" and letting us know what you're building. I'm handing API keys out like there's a superior monetary network in town. developer.strike.me/en/api/c…

To show off the Strike API, I'll be hosting a #Bitcoin and Lightning powered Chess + Q&A live stream today at 2:30pm EST Have a question about #Bitcoin, Lightning, the Strike API, or anything your heart desires? Ask it. No rules. Let's play some chess. youtu.be/gBora_vD6f8

How will I decide who to play? I won't. Every new game will be posted as a PlebPay Lightning invoice. First to pay the Lightning invoice gets access to the chess invite link and gets to play me on the live stream. Anyone in the world can pay and play. Open networks win 🚀⚡️🥳

I used to embarrass myself for free. At least now, I get paid. Thanks, #Bitcoin
