The widely popular Telegram messaging app is stepping up its game by enabling its users to purchase, withdraw, and exchange Bitcoin (BTC) with ease. Although not developed by Telegram itself, the Wallet bot and associated services have been introduced by a third-party using Telegram’s open bot API. This means that any developer can create their own cryptocurrency bot without direct involvement from the messaging platform.
With the @wallet web interface, users can now buy, withdraw, exchange, and even make peer-to-peer (P2P) transactions in Bitcoin directly through Telegram’s web interface. This latest feature, announced on April 21, adds to the growing list of crypto services available on the chat program.
The @wallet account stated in the announcement, “Bitcoin is now available on the @wallet web interface, along with a new instant exchange. You can now buy, withdraw, exchange, and make P2P transactions with BTC directly through our updated web interface. It is now possible to buy Bitcoin using a bank card or the P2P market in the ‘Buy & Sell’ section of our user-friendly interface.” This development makes it more convenient than ever for mainstream audiences to engage with Bitcoin using Telegram.
