Manuela Rios, Strike’s vice president of product, told CoinDesk that “Our end goal is to address the 7 to 8 billion people in every single country.” “If you are in the United States, the apps are gorgeous; there’s a really high bar for design.”Unfortunately, that’s not the case when you download apps abroad.”
Rio also stated that the new users will witness a seamless onboarding experience on the app, which, according to Rio, has been in the works for years. Additionally, the Strike app uses a culmination of Bitcoin and the Lighting network that allows users to conduct quick and cheap transactions. With this expansion, users across the globe, including Africa, Eastern Europe, Asia, Latin America, etc., can access the app.
