Litecoin can be sent via Telegram
The Litecoin founder Charlie Lee posted a link in his Twitter account to the new Lite.IM software, which allows to interact with Litecoin blockchain using text commands. Charlie Lee offered his subscribers to test Lite.IM and try to make a transfer. The beta version of Lite.IM for transferring cryptocurrency through Telegram uses a special bot. Team Zulu Republic – the developer of the new application – said that it chose Telegram as the most secure messenger.
As Lite.IM develops, the function of interaction with Litecoin via SMS will be added to it, which will allow making transfers without access to the Internet. Such an opportunity will be appreciated by residents of regions with low availability of Internet networks, as well as mobile phone owners. According to statistics, based on Zulu Republic, out of 4 billion mobile subscribers only 33% use smartphones. Thus, the potential audience of applications for interacting with blockchains via text SMS exceeds 2.6 billion people. As in this case, the security of the application from interception of SMS will be ensured, the developer promises to tell when adding a new function.
