Zulu Republic is Responsible for Enabling WhatsApp Bitcoin (BTC) and Litecoin (LTC) Transactions
Did you see this coming? How could you have thought such a thing?
Cryptocurrencies are very near like you never imagined. Over 1 billion individuals in over 180 countries use WhatsApp and they have been offered a way to transacting crypto. Slowly but steadily, blockchain is gaining mass adoption, and there is no better way to achieving that objective than making it accessible to millions of WhatsApp users.
Perhaps, it seems that this is literally the year to witness mainstream adoption of blockchain. Every recent achievement points straight towards this massive goal.
Now, WhatsApp users have every reason to smile as they can easily send and receive bitcoin as well as Litecoin on the prominent messaging platform.
The transaction is possible, thanks to Lite.im bot.
Crypto Transactions Carrying the Day
The crypto winter has passed-thanks for that, and now it's time for crypto transactions which has improved massively. More platforms have started offering crypto transactions for their beloved users.
Interestingly, they are neither exchanges nor crypto wallets. Market players are doing everything to introduce crypto payments and their targets are popular messaging platforms.
Now, the Zulu Republic, a blockchain ecosystem that consists of digital platforms and built on the Ethereum, just joined the initiative.
The company launched a software solution Lite.im bot that is compatible with the App to allow crypto transactions. The bot doesn't require any other additional downloads other than WhatsApp. Besides WhatsApp, it's also compatible with Telegram and Facebook Messenger.
Earning Crypto on WhatsApp
All that you're required to do to earn crypto on WhatsApp is simply to install the bot and then check on-screen prompts. In addition, it allows users to earn crypto by referring friends to install.
Currently, bot supports only two languages – English and Spanish. Moreover, apart from ETH and BTC, it also allows transacting in ZTX, Zulu Republic's native token.
SMS-Based Transactions Catalyst for Mainstream
Ideally what hinders most folks from ‘going crypto' is the fact that most believe that transacting crypto is intimidating and unfamiliar (apart from those familiar with crypto). Nevertheless, message-based transactions will prove to be a cheap means of transactions.
For that reason alone, several companies like Telegram and Facebook are on the process to achieve that goal. Earlier in February, a crypto wallet known as Wuabit announced plans of conducting operations with cryptos on apps such as Viber, Telegram, SMS, and WhatsApp.
Is Lite.im Endangering Facebook Coin?
Many expected Facebook to be the one on the spotlight on introducing the digital currencies via WhatsApp as it is the most talked-about company. All along we've heard of the ‘Facebook coin,' but now it seems like Lite.im might be a step ahead.
Although Facebook's crypto is shrouded in mystery and speculation, the competition should be heating up now. Nonetheless, what happens next is only time can tell, but for now we should try to transact on WhatsApp.
