Immediately, upon receipt you can send your funds to another lightning wallet, or powered exchange. There are no delays.
We think lightning addresses are really cool. They enable any wallet that supports the open-source specification to send you money directly, and immediately (or receive money from you). They can even include a message so that you can reference what it is for. This takes advantage of the decentralized lightning network, and any organization can technically join the network. You can learn more about it, including other software that supports it at https://lightningaddress.com/.
Mash is actively building lots of products & solutions – and improving some of our offerings based on the feedback we receive. Some are listed as coming soon on our website, because we're working with partners to launch them shortly. Because it is early days, we are actively building, please consider this software Beta, which includes having bugs and issues that require improvement.
This recommended pay-as-you-enjoy monetization feature, enables you to provide free access to your users in a Month when they've spent a certain amount. It combines the benefits of usage based monetization & the low-purchase barrier for users, with a benefit of subscriptions for users – where they know the maximum that they'll spend in a month. Maximum Spend includes all pay-as-you-enjoy experiences for your site. It excludes boosts, donations, and contributions to your account through a lightning address or LN-URL QR code.
We're pumped that you are curious about the most amazing money technology creation... in more than generations. We call it freedom money for a reason! There's lots to explore, that we will be producing over time – in the meantime, you can contact us and/or sign-up to our newsletter for the latest updates.
All payments through the Mash system occur in Bitcoin (sats is a unit of measurement for Bitcoin). To keep things simple for your users we keep pricing in USD. Because the exchange rate between Bitcoin & USD changes, the amount of Sats that are being sent to you changes with each transaction. Also, because your balance is in Bitcoin, the USD value will fluctuate as well. You can always send your Bitcoin to another wallet, or to an exchange and convert it to a currency of your choice.
