How will it operate?

The platform developers promise a user-friendly wallet. Apparently, in order to conduct a BTC or XRP transaction, it is enough to type a direct command, like “send 0.03 BTC to James”. The wallet will process the command and will transfer the crypto immediately.

How soon will the wallet launch?

The company’s spokesperson told the media that in April the public will see the beta testing of the app. The first virtual coin the wallet will work with will be Bitcoin. Later on, the app intends to expand its range of digital assets for users to pay with.

At Wuabit they believe that their new product will accelerate mass adoption of digital currencies, since crypto payments via popular messengers are likely to bring new users into the crypto industry.
