How fast are the payments?
The speed of the payments depends on the currency and the amount. For XRP, XLM, EOS, NEAR, SOL and TRX payments will always be almost instant. For BTC, ETH, DAI, USDC, USDT, BCH, BUSD, DOGE, LTC and ADA payments will be slower due to the nature of the protocol. If the amount is lower than 130 EUR, payments will be relatively fast (depending on the blockchain congestion). If the amount is higher than 130 EUR, payments will be slower because we are waiting for more confirmations on the blockchain.
