NASHUA, N.H., Oct. 1, 2018 — Today, CoinText.io, a service to send cryptocurrency to anyone with a mobile phone number, expanded its Bitcoin Cash (BCH) service to six more European countries including Germany, France, Austria, Portugal, Estonia and Czech Republic.
“Bitcoin was always meant to be used as borderless cash,” explained CoinText Founder and CTO Vin Armani. “Our aim with CoinText is to expand its usefulness in real life.”
CoinText enables sending money to anyone with a mobile phone number or BCH address. CoinText doesn’t require Internet or an app because users access wallets using text messages over Short Message Service (SMS).
CoinText users control their wallet with simple SMS commands like BALANCE to see their balance and RECEIVE to display their wallet address.
Users can send funds to domestic or foreign mobile phone numbers by texting commands like SEND $1 PHONENUMBER. After entering a 2FA code, transactions are instantly settled on the Bitcoin Cash (BCH) blockchain.
To get a new wallet, users can text START to their corresponding access number below:
Germany – 4917717817035
France – 33757905777

CoinText announced that this latest release also includes support for thirteen more languages across the entire CoinText platform including German, French, Portuguese, Dutch, Polish, Swedish, Turkish and more.

With this expansion, CoinText now services twenty three countries in fifteen languages.
