Earlier, Square Crypto provided a grant of $ 100,000 to the BTCPay Foundation, a non-profit organization behind the same-name processing.

Square Crypto also offered an unknown amount to the developer of the Lightning Network protocol under the nickname “ZmnSCPxj” so that he could totally devote his working time to LN.
