Messaging could be the logical starting point for digital currency adoption, according to the CEO of bitcoin-enabled chat app Wiper.
In an interview with CoinDesk, Manlion Carelli praised bitcoin’s “amazing” promise but said the currency remains difficult for beginners to use. “Wiper’s goal is to make it more accessible to even first time smartphone users, so that its promise can be realised,” he added.
Launched in 2014, Wiper is part of a new wave of ephemeral messaging services that allow users to erase, or ‘wipe’ their conversations. The app also offers encrypted messages and phone calls, music streaming and, as of February, an embedded bitcoin wallet.
