Today Pay burner is launching the beta for a new platform that enables instant, global peer-to-peer payments. Our growing network feature set includes a browser plugin, Pay ID integration, Request for Payment with encrypted peer to peer messaging, Pay ID network search, and a brand new ecommerce flow for 1-click checkout experiences.
For now, the services will be available only to Brave and Chrome browsers but with time, it will be introduced to other browsers also.
