Zulu Republic, an ecosystem of digital platforms powered by Ethereum, has launched its Lite.IM bot, to enable Whatsapp users to seamlessly send and receive bitcoin (BTC), litecoin (LTC) and its native ZTX altcoin on the go, according to a tweet on May 19, 2019.
Zulu Fostering Bitcoin Adoption
In a bid to promote widespread adoption of cryptoassets, Zulu Republic has announced the launch of a solution that enables Whatsapp users to send and receive bitcoin, litecoin, ether, and ZTX in real-time.
Reportedly, the Lite.IM bot currently supports English and Spanish, and interested users can easily integrate the app to their Whatsapp messaging application by simply following the onscreen instructions provided by the platform.
The team says users of the Lite.IM bot will earn referral bonuses in crypto when they refer their friends who also install the app.
It’s worthy of note that this is not the first time that Zulu Republic is creating an innovative solution aimed at making life easier for hodlers.
In October 2018, Zulu Republic announced that the Lite.Im app could facilitate crypto transactions via Facebook Messenger, making it possible for the over two billion users of the social networking platform to send, manage, and invest in litecoin securely.
Despite the seemingly unregulated nature of the cryptospace, numerous forward-thinking startups are working round the clock, creating solutions aimed at promoting mainstream crypto adoption.
As reported by BTCManager earlier in January 2019, CoinText.io, a platform that allows cryptocurrency holders to send and receive cryptos in over 33 jurisdictions via SMS, expanded operations to the Philippines, to enable residents to make borderless payments and withdraw pesos at local exchanges with near-zero fees.
“The Philippines has numerous crypto exchanges that make using cryptocurrency for remittances a no-brainer. With CoinText, Filipinos can make borderless payments and withdraw pesos at an exchange for a fraction of the cost of traditional money transfer services,” declared Vin Armani, CoinText founder and CTO.
Earlier in May 2019, BTCManager informed that Flexa, a New York-based fintech startup had launched its SPEDN app to enable cryptocurrency users to pay for everyday items at thousands of retail stores in the United States, including Barnes and Noble, Baskin Robins and Amazon’s Whole Foods Market to mention a few.
