The world’s first cryptocurrency messenger has already drawn millions of users around the world, amid an increased global interest in digital currencies.
BeeChat is a blockchain-based messenger and cryptocurrency community. The platform was launched in October and is now delivering hundreds of millions of messages every day through its network.
The platform uses end-to-end encryption and provides communications such as messaging, calling and video calls.
BeeChat currently supports over 10 cryptocurrencies, which can be stored in a digital currency wallet and exchanged between users in real time. The platform also provides options to facilitate the exchange of information about the cryptocurrencies market and blockchain.
"Facilitating information exchange in a social environment to educate the general public on the benefits of blockchain and cryptocurrencies is key to fostering the growth of the community – this is something that will revolutionize the way we interact," a member of the BeeChat founding team pointed out.
Blockchain is definitely one of the buzzwords of the outgoing year.
Blockchain is often regarded as an "anti-establishment" innovation associated with digital currencies, such as bitcoin, which rely on the technology.
Bitcoin, the world’s most popular cryptocurrency, saw a meteoric rise in 2017, from below $1,000 at the beginning of the year to a historic threshold of $20,000 earlier in December.
The cryptocurrency market has recently experienced a string of losses, culminating in a nosedive on December 22, with Bitcoin falling below $11,000. After the drastic downturn, Bitcoin recovered and has been hovering between $13,000 and 16,000 in recent days.
