WhatsApp users can now send and receive Bitcoin (BTC), Litecoin (LTC) and Ethereum (ETH) via the app. This is possible through the messaging bot “Lite.IM”, which the blockchain platform Zulu Republic offers.
The announcement of the new opportunity made Zulu Republic via Twitter. Zulu Republic also said that the bot provides users with a simple user interface. A guide on how to perform the crypto transactions is also included. In addition to Bitcoin, Litecoin and Ethereum, WhatsApp and Lite.IM users can also use the Zulu Republic Token (ZTX), Zulu Republic's native cryptocurrency.

New momentum for cryptocurrency
Integration with WhatsApp should give new impetus to cryptocurrencies. With 1.5 billion users in 180 countries, WhatsApp is the world's most popular messaging app. According to 99firms.com, the app gains an average of one million new users each day.
Lite.IM already enables the sending of cryptocurrencies in a number of messaging apps. These include the Facebook Messenger, Telegram and conventional text messages.
For the future, Zulu Republic has made it even easier to send cryptocurrencies. So users should be able to scan QR codes to make the app even more convenient.
