Merchants wishing to accept payments through Bitfinex Pay must first register for an account and verify their identity. Once verified, merchants can integrate the Bitfinex Pay widget on their websites.
Paolo Ardoino, CTO at Bitfinex Pay, described the MetaMask wallet as a "ubiquitous tool in the digital token space." Regarding the future of cryptocurrency payments in general, Ardoino told Cointelegraph that digital assets are "going to disrupt the current payment industry by cutting out intermediaries while also reducing fees and friction. It is not a question of if but just when."
