WhatsApp contestant Signal has declared support for cryptocurrency amounts,
a world-first for any messaging app.
According to a statement in Decrypt, users of the privacy-focused app can
now exchange MobileCoin a “privacy coin” directly through Signal. Currencies
such as Bitcoin and Ethereum are in the pipeline, scheduled rollouts have been
recorded in the coming months. Signal has bothering a move into the crypto
game for quite some time now. Creator Moxie Marlinspike, the attorney for the
MobileCoin network, told a news break, I would like to get to a world where not
only can you feel that when you talk to your therapist over Signal, but also when
you spend your therapist for the session over Signal
Furthermore, a touchdown page on the Signal Foundation site says that a non-
profit organisation, which backs the app, has started holding donations in digital
fiat including Bitcoin Ethereum, Litecoin, ChainLink, and Zcash. While there’s no
apparent progress behind integrating all cryptocurrencies to Signal’s mainframe,
the officials surrounding the app are lucky that this moves soon.
