Bitcoin Cash Can Now Be Sent Using A Text Message By Crescent Cash Users
Good news for crescent cash users! The option of sending Bitcoin Cash to mobile phone numbers is now available. One doesn’t have to have a Bitcoin Cash wallet.
According to News.Bitcoin, the new addition of the text message sending service is as a result of a new open source API that was introduced by Cointext, a crypto startup. Once one sends their Bitcoin Cash via an ordinary text message, the capital can instantly be spend on the Cointext application.
This genius behind this development is a developer known as Pokkst who became totally frustrated with the current scaling direction of the BTC network. Due to the numerous frustrations, he decided to move all his Bitcoin projects to the Bitcoin Cash network where he consistently keeps scaling to the Crescent Cash wallet.
Cash accounts addresses allow people to transact using addresses that the average person can understand rather than the long computer-generated string humans are used to. This can be done by the Crescent Light client that’s available on all Android devices. But Pokkst later came up with the Simple Ledger Protocol (SLP) that supports Crescent client. It is now possible for BCH fans to store their SLP- based tokens in the same wallet. And due to the API that Cointext provides, Crescent wallet can send BCH to phones.
One can even type a number manually and send BCH immediately to any cell phone number in all the forty-two countries that Cointext is available according to Cointext founder and CTO Vin Armani. He further added that users will not need to use ordinary messages to move BCH to phone numbers, neither will they have to have a Cointext balance in order to use the SMS service.
Pokkst is a strong believer in that the BCH protocol functions as what Bitcoin was meant for by providing peer to peer transactions without any need for approvals. Pokkst doesn’t agree with the BTC exorbitant fee networks and the long time it takes for transactions to be confirmed.
Furthermore, he thinks that the Lightning Network development idea is quite complicated for the ordinary user. He stated that BTC’s Lightning Network is too complicated for the everyday user. He said that if programmers and developers where looking for Bitcoin to be successful, then it has to provide an amazing experience for the user; BCH works perfectly, just as the way BTC previously used to.
