Send and receive bitcoins on WhatsApp

By Our Reporter

Now you can send and receive Bitcoin (BTC) and Litecoin (LTC) via messaging platform WhatsApp thanks to the Lite.Im bot. The move aims to simplify the cryptocurrency transaction process, bringing virtual currencies closer to people.

In a tweet published by Zulu Republic on Sunday, 19 May, the digital platform announced that its cryptocurrency messaging platform Lite.Im had introduced bitcoin via WhatsApp.

More than 1.5 billion people in over 180 countries use WhatsApp to stay in touch with friends and family, anytime and anywhere.

All users have to do is add the Lite.Im WhatsApp bot and follow the on-screen prompts. There are numerous options for users apart from sending and receiving BTC and LTC. Presently, the two default languages are English and Spanish.

The service also allows people to earn cryptocurrency via a referral program. The service also supports sending and receiving Ether (ETH) and ZTX—the native token on the Zulu Republic platform.

Lite.Im already has similar services for Facebook Messenger, Telegram, and SMS.

According to the company, “social messaging” is an important component of wider cryptocurrency adoption.

Meanwhile, Facebook has its own cryptocurrency plans, although there is no official word from the company yet.
