Therefore now, along with CashApp, Venmo, and other major payment service providers, Bitcoin will also be added to the list of payment methods.

Originally, the Tip Jar was announced way back in the month of May when the market had crashed, and it was rumored that Bitcoin tipping would be a part of it.

The global Bitcoin adoption rates are rapidly increasing as institutions are intrigued while investors are obsessed with cryptocurrencies. A rise in institutional money has resulted in the rise of BTC-based services, including Facebook releasing its own stablecoin imminently.

This puts the entire blockchain industry and crypto-based services in the spotlight. With this new update, the Lightning Network will also get a new use case and will attract further attention.
