Regardless of which service or platform you are using in the world of Bitcoin and digital currency, security plays an increasingly important role in our lives. The problem is that most of us have gotten accustomed to doing things a certain way that compromise security in multiple ways. But, when it comes to social messaging, SendChat is on the right track to change that situation, as they have partnered with BlockTrail.
SendChat – Social Messaging Mixes With Cryptocurrency
The idea of social messaging has integrated into our daily lives in such a way that we don’t think about it anymore. Just like sending SMS messages started becoming one of the most normal things in the world, so has social messaging. In fact, you may have a social messaging application on your phone running in the background right now.
One way to get a “leg up” over the competition is by building your new social messaging application on top of an existing one with a large user base. SendChat has done exactly that, as they used Telegram’s Open Source initiative, allowing developers to build specific apps on top of Telegram by using existing features and APIs.
For those readers wondering why SendChat decided to use Telegram as a base, the reason is rather simple to explain. Telegram has a user base of over 50 million users already, and that number is still growing. So, it only makes sense to use their infrastructure – with Telegram’s permission – and build a new application on top of that.
The result is rather stunning as Telegram users experience the same interface they have gotten accustomed to when using SendChat. But, there is more to it, as SendChat also integrates the option of sending various types of digital currency to anyone on the Telegram network. With such a massive user base being introduced to the aspect of cryptocurrency, SendChat is shaking things up in the social messaging world.
BlockTrail – Multisignature Security For Developers and Enterprises
As you would come to expect from an application such as SendChat, they do take user security to heart in multiple ways. Even though this is a social messaging application, there is also a financial aspect tied to the service. And, protecting that financial aspect is next to upholding a user-friendly interface; the main priority for the SendChat team.
By partnering up with BlockTrail – a Bitcoin APi and multi-signature security platform for developers and enterprises, – additional security features are being integrated into the SendChat social messaging application. The main feature is the creation of secure multi-signature transactions without the user giving up access to his or her Bitcoin.
On top of that, SendChat users will be able to generate unlimited Bitcoin addresses, all of which use the same master key. Last, but not least, all payment data will be backed up automatically in order to prevent loss of data and funds. A feature that will be appreciated by many, if not all, SendChat users.
“SendChat also integrates the option of sending various types of digital currency to anyone on the Telegram network. With such a massive user base being introduced to the aspect of cryptocurrency, SendChat is shaking things up in the social messaging world.” – Alejandro De La Torre, Founder of SendChat.org, told DigitalMoneyTimes.
But, that is not all, as the partnership between BlockTrail and SendChat brings other features to the table as well. Refined data regarding addresses, transactions, and economy analysis can now be delivered to any platform. Plus, all of the data will be available in real-time. Furthermore, the economy and network analysis will help improve the SendChat platform in the future, and give a better insight as to how the social messaging application is being used.
As you can see, there are a lot of benefits for all parties involved. SendChat users will receive the highest level of Bitcoin security possible right now, while BlockTrail gets linked to one of the most promising social messaging applications out there. And, SendChat will continue on their quest to bring Bitcoin and digital currency to the world.
