The company Lite.im announced on Twitter a few days ago that over 2 billion Facebook users can invest in Litecoin. This can be done easily and people can also send and receive this popular virtual currency.

However, the system works very simply. The conversation presents a bot that helps the individual to get started. To do this, it is necessary to be registered. Everything can be done through the chat provided by the messenger and in a few minutes the account will be created.
The registration process requires a valid email address and a telephone number. Once the user has provided this information, an SMS code will be sent to the telephone number provided. After confirming the code, the user must select a password for the Lite.im account.
After all these steps, the user will receive a Litecoin wallet address to receive LTC. Now everything is ready to start sending and receiving Litecoin.
This is not the first time that Lite.im has launched a service for messaging applications. In the past, the company has launched the same service on the Telegram messaging app. If there are individuals who want to start using this service, they can learn more about the official Lite.im website.
The company behind Lite.im is Zulu Republic. On the matter, they said that they want to make access to the cryptocurrency possible for a larger population.
The Zulu Republic commented on this:
"Lite.im offers Litecoin services to anyone who also has a basic cell phone, regardless of whether or not he has access to the Internet, with a simple Telegram or SMS message.I'm users will be able to interact with Litecoin's blockchain, sending and receiving funds from anywhere in the world where a cell phone signal can be found. "
A few weeks ago, CoinText.io launched a similar service to send and receive Bitcoin Cash (BCH) using SMS messages. The service is already available in some countries.
