After reading about lighting network from Bitcoin, i stumbled into this website that is "Testing" payments through lighting network which supposedly makes the transactions faster.
it's working and testing site.. bugs may be present, but it's working. Use it, pick a product and go until the checkout page so you see it.
it accepts payment when you send bitcoins to a QR and address allocated temporarily in the network
This made me think about payments with lumens or using stellar network for check outs in anywhere online.
Want to sell something in your website and receive lumens or fiat through stellar network? done. get this plugin working for woo comerce (wordpress extension)
But right now.. i don't see any projects doing this and the next challenge is open until 15 march. --> https://www.stellar.org/lumens/build/
the last time someone did a "wallet" that got hacked and lots of people lost their money.
How can apps be done without requiring secret key? this is a problem and also a necessity to create a portable wallet for payments (smart phone app)
i imagine myself buying stuff online, going into the checkout and scanning with my smart phone the code to make the payment and receive my item.
Also as a seller, setting a website business where i offer courses and products where users get to a checkout and get their phones to scan the code and make the payments.
a receipt is sent through email, and a payment is received like an email.
What skills and knowledge is needed for this? i have the whole idea in my mind, but i have no known team to create this.
Is there someone out to there willing to create this ?
I wish i could meet people to make this happen, even in my country (Ecuador) because Bitcoin is not the only crypto and i imagine the future implementing Lumens to pay for everyday stuff we need. From your own personal bank account in the stellar network.
I know it has something to do with API that is available for anyone to work with the Stellar Network, but i would like a simple guide with tutorials and people interested in creating something alike.
ps. There's this resource i found somewhere else.
It's a standard way of generating payment links and QR codes:
