Implement the concept of "Micropayments" as a use case for Payment.

Micropayments in Litecoin involve minimal transactions, often less than a dollar, using the Litecoin cryptocurrency. These are commonly used for low-value purchases such as music streaming platforms, digital goods, tipping, or small donations. Litecoin's low transaction fees make it cost-effective for sending small amounts of money. Its support for a high volume of transactions ensures efficient handling of numerous small transactions.

Use Case: Game Streaming Platforms

1. Virtual Goods: Buying In-Game Items, Skins, or Currencies

  • The game streaming platform selects an appropriate subscription plan.

  • The gaming platform creates a central wallet and generates an address where each player can send LTC funds

  • Each player creates an in-game wallet. The in-game wallet can be funded using fiat currency or transfers from other wallets.

  • An in-game marketplace is established where players can browse and purchase virtual goods such as items, skins, or in-game currency.

  • Players send LTC from their in-game wallet to the platform’s central address to complete transactions.

  1. Tipping Streamers: Viewers Can Tip Game Streamers Small Amounts During Live Streams

  • Each streamer creates a Litecoin wallet linked to their streaming account.

  • Create a tipping interface within the streaming platform where viewers can easily tip streamers by sending LTC.

  • Streamers broadcast their gameplay live on the platform.

  • Viewers see a tipping option alongside the live stream.

  • The viewer selects the tip amount and sends LTC funds.

  • The platform processes the micropayment from the viewer's wallet to the streamer's wallet by creating a transaction, signing it, and broadcasting it.

  • The platform displays an acknowledgment of the tip (e.g., a thank-you message or an on-screen animation).
