How to send and receive Satoshis via LNTXBot

LNTXBot – the Lightning Wallet for every user of the popular chat app Telegram has been building a solid fan base among the Bitcoin community over the past two years; last but not least due to the rapid development speed, addition and experimentation of requested features and the overall approach by its creator Fiatjaf to put practicality before ideology.

While in 2017 various scammy ICO’s took millions of $ for the promise to build a new chat app (with no existing user base) and integrate it with their scammy token (with no existing demand), Fiatjaf took the logical approach: 

Use the most prominently used chat app in the Crypto space and integrate it with Bitcoin as the world’s most demanded Cryptocurrency.

Born was the idea of LNTXBot – developed and realized by the one-man-coder army of Fiatjaf (a longer interview about his story can be read on the page of Bitcoin Saigon).

In today’s LNTXBot Tutorial we will briefly explain how you can use LNTXBot to send and receive Sats straight from your Telegram account.
