Relai, a Bitcoin-only application, is taking a significant step forward by incorporating Lightning payment functionality into its self-custody platform.

This enhancement comes through a collaboration with Blockstream’s Greenlight solution, a move that promises to significantly elevate the user experience for Relai's clientele.

The Swiss-based app is set to offer its 100,000 users the ability to conduct low-cost Bitcoin (CRYPTO:BTC) transactions swiftly using the Lightning Network, all the while ensuring users retain control over their private keys.

This integration not only simplifies transactions but also relieves Relai from the cumbersome necessity of developing and managing a bespoke Lightning infrastructure, marking a notable advancement in making Bitcoin transactions more efficient and user-friendly.
