Make Bitcoin Cash (BCH) more easy to be used by Users, Merchants and Peers, through a shopping assistant in Telegram!
Our goal is to implement Market Bot, as we call it, since nowadays bitcoin cash have many robust wallets in the ecosystem, and it also have a scalable blockchain solution as a landing ground to create faster and more efficient peer to peer economy/transactions, following the spirit of satoshi vision. The BCH Adoption is also a core part of the coin economy, as important as having robust wallets. If we can have a large number of merchants and peers accepting BCH directly, we help minimising the Fiat element of the ecosystem, that is essential for empowering this new medium of exchange. We want and need mass adoption and use of BCH to keep gaining coin value and market capitalization!
The market cap of cryptocurrencies in general, grew from less than $18 billion in 2016 to $237.1 billion in 2019. But even with this large market size, changing regulations or the investment by Companies: cryptocurrency adoption is not as widespread as it has the potential to be. For increasing BCH adoption, the process to buy, sell, and store crypto assets needs to be reworked to make it much more user & shopping friendly.
What it does
We trained our virtual assistant to help users with their daily tasks and transactions:
1- Spend BCH:
- P2P Marketplace: (From offering your Cleaning, Home Repairs and Delivery services, to sell your used items.)
-Empower peers transactions in exchange for services, used goods, and/or content. (Allowing P2P transactions is essential for the mass adoption of BCH around the world).
- Services (Find Hotels, Rent a Cars and Maintenance that accepts BCH):
-For example: Book and Pay for your Hotel Room:
-Goods (Food, Clothe & Automobiles):
-You can also find and buy products:
For each Merchant/Stores we provide to the users:
- Geolocation by City,
- Name of Store,
- BCH Address,
- Phone Number,
- Address, -Telegram contact.
2- Price Today: This section includes the real time price of BCH to USD.
3- ATMs: Here you can find ATMs (BUY) or (BUY&SELL). Each ATM is geolocated by city and includes their Address.
4-Accept BCH: This sections helps the merchants to get started with Bitcoin Cash and how to start accepting payments from the users:
