Lite.IM Brings Bitcoin to Facebook Messenger, Telegram, and SMS

BTC arrives on Lite.IM

We’re pleased to announce that Bitcoin (BTC) support has finally arrived on Lite.IM!

Now you can send, receive, and manage your Bitcoin easily and securely right from the convenience of popular messaging platforms like Telegram, Facebook Messenger, and SMS (in the US and Canada). Bitcoin is the fourth currency to arrive on Lite.IM after Litecoin (LTC), Ether (ETH), and ZTX were added earlier this year.

With each new update, Lite.IM becomes more and more of a user-friendly cryptocurrency powerhouse, moving us closer and closer to widespread adoption. We’re proud to be bringing the world’s most popular cryptocurrency to the combined 2.5 billion users of Facebook and Telegram, not to mention all those who lack dependable internet access that can now manage Bitcoin via SMS messaging.

As always, Lite.IM keeps your private data private. We never store your chat records, and even shield third parties like Facebook from your most sensitive data with a secure password form. No matter which app or currency you use Lite.IM with, your private keys are secured with advanced RSA encryption, which means nobody but you will ever have access to your funds.

Of course, as the world’s most advanced cryptocurrency management platform for social and messaging apps, Lite.IM is not going to stop here. We have a ton of new features coming in the near future, including support for new apps and currencies, not to mention a completely new direction for the brand.

Get started managing your cryptocurrency with a few simple text-based commands by sending any message to the Lite.IM bot on the platform of your choice:

Telegram: @LiteIM_bot
Facebook Messenger: @lite.im
SMS (U.S. and Canada only): 760-LITEIM-0 (760–548–3460)
