Armani had this to say,

“Cointext allows anyone with a cellular signal to access cryptocurrency — This includes all brands of smartphones and about two billion people with basic feature phones,”

Ukraine is experiencing political instability and Italy is facing a sovereign debt crisis. Cryptocurrency provides residents with a way to opt out, and Cointext provides them with the easiest tool to begin using cryptocurrency.

Referencing the Cointext website will allow users in the supported countries to locate their access number to utilize the service. In order for them to gain a wallet, users must simply text the word “receive” to access the number to gain a fresh BCH address. Cointext utilizes a variety of other text commands to send funds to another address, and other commands to read the wallet’s balance.
