Innovation is a driving factor in the world of Bitcoin and cryptocurrency. Bitwala, a company, focusing on sending money quickly and safely by using the Bitcoin network, has introduced their new messenger feature. By using the Bitwala Messenger, platform users can send each other funds by just typing a regular command in the conversation.
Sending money through a communication protocol is nothing new under the sun. Various Fintech companies are working on building banking platforms on top of Facebook Messenger. Telegram users have been able to send money to each other as well for quite some time now, thanks to various cryptocurrency bots.
Bitwala Messenger Makes Requesting Money Convenient
But when it comes to taking this technology mainstream, something just does not seem to click right away. This is why Bitwala Messenger was launched, even though it is only accessible to platform users. The web app messenger lets customers interact with each other, and also send funds by entering a command through the conversation window.
Moreover, users can use Bitwala Messenger to request funds as well. If a friend or family member still has to pay you back, the user can send a reminder. If the other party decides to pay right away, they can do so through the messenger platform. Notes and personal reminders within the chat can be added as well.
What makes this feature even more attractive is how there is no verification needed. Every Bitwala user can make use of the Bitwala Messenger, regardless of their account level. The primary objective of developing this tool was to make it accessible, convenient, and without friction.
But there is more, as the Bitwala Messenger also includes a transaction history. Do keep in mind this feature is only limited to the transactions sent via the Messenger platform, though. In the end, this solution brings more peer-to-peer interaction to the platform, which can only be seen as a positive trend.
