Use Lightning From A USD Stable-Balance
Galoy is currently working on new USD functionality to allow users to store their BTC stably as a USD local balance. This is done by using an internal dealer service to hedge any bitcoin a user receives to their USD wallet. Users can send payments via any lightning invoice to any Lighting Network wallet using their USD wallet.
Hear Galoy CEO Nicolas Burtey discuss this functionality on Stephan Livera Podcast.
