Founding Date

Zap is a bitcoin investment and payments company that transacts over the Lightning Network. The company created Strike, an application that allows anyone to send money instantly, with no fees, anywhere in the world. Strike leverages Bitcoin’s open payment network to offer users the first global peer-to-peer payments app and a novel bitcoin-native financial experience. The company’s platform is non-custodial, open-source, and offers the creation and control of the use of multiple wallets. Zap allows its users to connect to their existing Lightning node to send, receive and manage their channels, enabling users to swap fiat for cryptocurrencies instantaneously and at affordable rates. In the Spring of 2020, Zap partnered with Visa integrating Visa Direct to make payments faster on the app.
