Users of the major private messaging app Signal can now support the project with crypto-currencies such as bitcoin (BTC).
Signal officially announced on Monday that the platform had begun accepting donations in cryptocurrency in support of the Signal Technology Foundation, the nonprofit behind the app. As a non-profit organization, we count on your support. If you’ve been patiently waiting for Signal to accept donations in cryptocurrency, you don’t have to return your generosity, Signal wrote.
Cryptocurrency donations are now part of the donation section of Signal’s official website, which says the new feature will be enabled by its main cryptocurrency donation platform, The Giving Block.
Signal accepts 12 crypto currencies, including bitcoin, ether (ETH), litecoin (LTC), bitcoin cash (BCH), Gemini dollar (GUSD), Basic Attention Token (BAT), zcash (ZEC) and Chain Link (LINK). The foundation division also handles anonymous donations, Signal said in a memo accompanying its crypto-currency donation division.
Signal is a cross-platform messaging service with end-to-end encryption. The Signal Technology Foundation was founded in February 2018 by WhatsApp co-founder Brian Acton, who left WhatsApp and Facebook in 2017 to found Signal.
In January 2021, Platformer newsletter founder Casey Newton announced that Signal was testing payment features on the privacy-based MobileCoin platform, which is backed by Binance Stellar, and mentioned that Signal CEO Moxie Marlinspike is also an advisor to the MobileCoin project.
