Bitfinex recent upgrades

There have been two major upgrades of Bitfinex in recent times. The firm has teamed with Bitrefill. This will allow the clients to buy with Bitcoin over Lightning Network. Bitrefill is a crypto-only company. And it sells gift cards, prepaid mobile recharges and Lightning Network to customers across the globe.

Also, Chainalysis a New York-based analytics firm has developed a monitoring system to provide anti-money laundering compliance solutions to Bitfinex.

According to the company, these two upgrades will completely change the payments and spending habits of the users.

Well, before any user pays through a debit card or credit card to buy cryptocurrency, he has to make sure that the bank allows the buy or sell of crypto assets.  As an example, all Indian banks are restricted to make any such kind of transactions according to the Reserve Bank of India. In such a case, the bank may freeze the user account to prohibit such transactions.
