The executives of the platform consider Litecoin to be a safe and reliable crypto currency. That's why TapJets customers can now book a private flight with LTC and go on a flight without waiting for the transaction to finish on the block. Payment in LTC can be made directly from your smartphone.

We are obsessed with making TapJets user experience as simple as possible.  When we decide to accept a new payment method, we have to make sure that our 18,000+ users have minimal impact to theirs in-app user experience, and the exchange rate is accurate and accounts for all of the fees.

CEO, TapJets

Earlier, in addition to traditional payments on credit cards and bank transfers, the platform accepted only bitcoin and Ethereum as payment.

As the creator of the Litecoin network Charlie Lee wrote on Twitter, it took only two weeks to implement the idea of the platform. Also, according to Lee, speed, liquidity and ease of integration make Litecoin an ideal crypto currency for payments.

Lite.IM Beta to be Released

Lite.IM will allow users to interact with Litecoin blockchain using text commands through a special API-system

Developers of the Zulu Republic blockchain project presented Lite.IM software that allows users to make transactions in the Litecoin network using SMS messages and the Telegram messenger.

Zulu Republic is convinced that Telegram is the safest messenger and provides all the necessary opportunities for testing the concept before launching SMS payments.

Representatives of the project emphasize that a lot of people live in countries with limited access to the Internet, under conditions of strict censorship by political regimes, without access to financial services. In addition, 64% of the world's population owns mobile phones, but only 33% have smartphones. This is the reason why Zulu Republic is convinced of the need to link SMS messages and Litecoin blockchain, not relying on the availability of the Internet.

By opening the world of cryptocurrency to these underserved and vulnerable populations, we aim to provide a degree of financial agency, autonomy, and (perhaps most importantly) security that they’ve been denied up until now.

Lite.IM will allow users to interact with Litecoin blockchain using text commands through a special API-system. At the moment the community already has the opportunity to use Telegram-bot to check balances and send Litecoin to LTC-addresses or e-mail. The solution is written on JavaScript. More info is available at GitHub.

The creator of "digital silver" Charlie Lee is convinced that the bear market allows us to focus on developing solutions for mass adoption of technology.
