Breez launches public beta of Lightning Network enabled bitcoin wallet

Breez also provides merchants with a simple, NFC-based, point-of-sale app to start accepting bitcoin payments.

It lets users transfer funds in any denomination and receive payments.

Even better, Breez automatically backs up to Google Drive, sparing users the need to remember mnemonics or private keys (an iCloud backup will come with the iOS rollout, which is coming soon.)

Bitrefill is among its launch partners, it enables users to pay bills, buy gift cards, and top up their phones using gift cards purchased using BTC.
