While we have yet to see the many projects planned on Facebook’s part that will allow users to send and receive their native coin across their several subsidiaries, users waiting in anticipation may not have to wait that long to see how this process would function.

While we have yet to see the many projects planned on Facebook’s part that will allow users to send and receive their native coin across their several subsidiaries, users waiting in anticipation may not have to wait that long to see how this process would function.

For those who are awaiting the arrival of Facecoin and other potential projects expected from the social media giant, these new developments with the Lite.im bot should be able to act as a suitable placeholder for the time being.

WhatsApp recently made the decision for crypto integration on their platform through the use of the Lite.im messaging bot, a bot with a simple user interface that makes it possible for WhatsApp users to send a wide variety of cryptocurrencies to each other, including Bitcoin, Litecoin, Ethereum, and ZTX, which is the native cryptocurrency to the project that developed the app, Zulu Republic.

Additionally, the platform gives out $0.10 in Bitcoin for each referral made to friends. At the moment, the platform only provides service to those who speak English and Spanish but has plans to further develop this service later on, including adding simpler processes such as QR codes.

This development has a massive impact in terms of overall exposure to cryptocurrency as WhatsApp boasts an impressive 1.5 billion active users across 180 countries, with expected growth within the U.S. over the next few years. Even more exciting, the Lite.im messaging bot is already available on other major messaging platforms such as Facebook Messenger, Telegram, and through regular text messaging applications available on your phone.

Overall, this messaging bot can act a simpler way for everyday people to easily interact with some of the most popular cryptocurrencies so that they can experience the magic and simplicity of crypto for themselves. For those who are awaiting the arrival of Facecoin and other potential projects expected from the social media giant, these new developments with the Lite.im bot should be able to act as a suitable placeholder for the time being.

Whatsapp is owned by Facebook. Facebook is a company known for harvesting peoples information and selling it for profit. Any crypto transactions performed will be traced to your whatsapp account. There is nothing exciting about this. I would avoid like the plague!
