LATEST: Bitcoin Payment App Strike Expands to Europe, Boosting Crypto Accessibility

Strike, the innovative payments app utilizing Bitcoin’s blockchain, has launched its services across Europe, allowing users to buy, sell, and withdraw bitcoin. As announced on Wednesday, Europeans can now handle transactions directly with euro deposits through SEPA, the region’s payment provider. This expansion is seen as a significant step for bitcoin adoption, given Europe’s stature as the third-largest economy worldwide. Strike aims to offer a more efficient and cost-effective alternative to traditional payment systems like Cash App and PayPal by capitalizing on the faster transaction speeds provided by blockchain technology.

The app, already available in Asia, Africa, the Caribbean, and Latin America, has been met with positive feedback from the community, signaling a strong demand for bitcoin in Europe. European users can check their local iOS or Android app stores for availability, although access may vary by country. Founded by entrepreneur Jack Mallers and run by Chicago-based Zap Solutions, Strike made its debut in the U.S. in 2020 and continues to revolutionize global financial transfers by integrating cutting-edge blockchain solutions.
