Lite.IM Adds Bitcoin Support, to Facebook Messenger, Telegram and SMS

Back in early August this year, the team at Lite.IM had taken crypto adoption to a whole new level when they announced that Litecoin (LTC) was available via Telegram and Text Messages. The move by Lite.IM was aimed at expanding cryptocurrency access to a wider global population.

After LTC availability on Telegram and SMS, the team at Lite.IM went a step further this November and integrated their Litecoin remittance service to facebook messenger.

It is with the above background that the same team has announced that they have added support for Bitcoin on Lite.IM. Users can now send, receive and manage BTC through the popular platforms of Telegram, Facebook messenger and SMS (available only in the US and Canada).

Bitcoin becomes the fourth currency that Lite.IM supports after Litecoin (LTC), Ethereum (ETH) and Zulu Republic Token (ZTX).

Users can access the service on the three platforms as follows:

  • Telegram – by interacting with @LiteIM_bot
  • Facebook Messenger -by messaging @lite.im
  • SMS (U.S. and Canada only) – by texting 760-LITEIM-0 (760–548–3460)

Why Lite.IM believes Social Messaging Will be Key in Crypto Adoption

To note, is that Lite.IM’s services are available in the social media platforms of facebook messenger and Telegram. The focus on the platforms is strategic in that Lite.IM believes that crypto adoption will be driven by such social media platforms due to the billions of users they have.

The Lite.IM team went on to explain this as follows:

Just take a look at the monthly active user statistics from the top social messaging apps in the world (all of which are growing)…

  • WhatsApp: 1.5+ Billion
  • Messenger: 1.3+ Billion
  • WeChat: 1.08 Billion
  • Telegram: 200+ Million
  • LINE: 200+ Million
  • Zalo: 100+ Million
  • KakaoTalk: 50+ Million

Much of this growth is taking place among younger generations and in developing nations, both of which are key demographics for the future of cryptocurrency adoption.
