Bitcoin Cash SMS Crypto Wallet Arrives to Asia and Middle East - Bitcoin Cash News. Tuesday, October 9th

CoinText arrives to Asia and the Middle East

The SMS crypto wallet is expanding to several countries

Citizens and residents of Hong Kong, Israel and Palestine can now make use of CoinText’s Bitcoin Cash (BCH) wallet over SMS. Vin Armani, lead developer and founder of the company, commented that such regions have a significant importance for them, since these are “financial centers”, and the service they provide will allow them to access physical cash in a simple way.

This way, Hong Kong became the first Asian country enabled to send, receive and check balance of BCH with a single command from a basic mobile phone, thanks to this platform. Additionally, Israelis and Palestinians will have access to this wallet, which can send funds to a mobile phone number or a Bitcoin Cash address without the need for Internet or an app.

The announcement also mentions that at the moment, English is the only language available for the messaging service in the newly-supported countries. However, the team behind CoinText is working to implement Chinese and Hebrew, with no release date for both languages.

Armani moved by the release in the Middle East

Via his official Twitter account, Vin Armani expressed how he feels about the recent roll-out in both countries, especially due to the current conflict between them. 

“Today's release of @CoinText in #Israel and #Palestine is particularly meaningful for me,” he said. “I spent years in my youth marching in the streets for peace in that region. Now I understand that individual (financial) sovereignty is the surest path to peace.”

6 more countries to be added in the near future

With the addition of these three countries, CoinText has reached to 25 nations already enabled to send and receive BCH with only a mobile network and a basic cellphone. But, there are plans to include 6 more anytime soon, according to a tweet by the company.

Italy, Croatia, Slovenia, Bulgaria, Romania and Latvia are the possible candidates to be supported, and CoinText is asking people living in any of these territories for help in testing the service. Participants of this beta stage will be rewarded with BCH, per the tweet.

However, there are no news about expanding support for other countries in regards of Litecoin and Dash, two cryptocurrencies that were recently added to CoinText.
