Signal, the popular encrypted messaging app is enabling payment transactions between users inside the encrypted communications networks.
Integration of privacy-focused cryptocurrency MobileCoin will give users the ease of sending payments to each other all within the app.
The payment system is currently on beta phase and only available to UK users.
Choosing MobileCoin instead of other privacy coins such as Monero and Zcash has advantages.
MobileCoin is designed for mobile devices, requires little storage space and has fast transaction throughput.
With this new feature, Signal aims to be the best in offering privacy for its users not only on encrypted messaging as well as payments.
