A Simple Guide to On-Chain Invoicing


On-Chain Invoicing uses the Bitcoin Cash blockchain to provide a mechanism for setting upinexpensive one-time or recurring payments. The Cash chain of Bitcoin has low transaction fees, making it cheap to send payments. It uses OP_RETURN for minimal UTXO impact for the invoicing.
