After facing a backlash in the Bitcoin (BTC) community over comments towards the Financial Occasions that Bitcoin is “not a payments network,” Mike Bankman-Fried, the millionaire Chief executive officer of crypto exchange FTX, now hints that his exchange may implement Bitcoin Lightning Network payments.
“Sounds right, will ping devs,” Bankman-Fried responded to some comment that recommended that “all is forgiven” if Lightning is built-into FTX.
Not one other information regarding the potential integration were provided.
Michael Saylor, Chief executive officer of MicroStrategy along with a major Bitcoin bull, told the exchange Chief executive officer that supporting Lightning can give FTX a benefit over others.
Others also offered their two cents, calling the founding father of FTX “smart.”
“[Mike Bankman-Fried] changes his position on Bitcoin and transmits to devs to behave. Smart people reserve the authority to change their mind. Mike is sensible,” commented Jason A. Johnson, a well known Bitcoin proponent and author from the book Bitcoin: Hard Money You Cannot F*ck With.
