The Foundation for Interwallet Operability (FIO) has announced that leading cross-platform AI chatbot Alty has integrated the FIO Protocol. As of today, 4.2million Alty users can now send, receive, and request any type of cryptocurrency using FIO Protocol-enabled functionality.
The FIO Protocol is an open-source, decentralized usability solution that works across all blockchains, and uses human-readable Crypto Handles (e.g. hello@alty) to replace the complexity, risk, and inconvenience of transacting with long-string public wallet addresses.
The FIO Protocol grants Alty users the ease of sending, receiving, and requesting digital currency to and from their Alty wallet using these Crypto Handles. Alty users will be able to create their own customized FIO Crypto Handles on the @Alty domain (e.g. user@alty). This integration is the latest step in Alty’s mission to make crypto more accessible to its users by providing a single point of access to highly usable and interoperable usability features products.
Luke Stokes, MD, Foundation for Interwallet Operability: “The ability to send messages instantly for free has transformed how we communicate with each other via mobile phones. Sending digital currencies to trusted parties should be no more complicated or stressful than sending an e-mail, something that is now possible with the FIO Protocol. We look forward to demonstrating just how simple cryptocurrency adoption can be via FIO Protocol enabled in the Alty crypto wallet.”
Patrick Moufarrige, Product Owner, Alty: “FIO has simplified blockchain transactions from the start and that perfectly matched Alty’s drive to make crypto easy. We had started by allowing users to send crypto using just phone numbers in WhatsApp or Telegram specifically because everyone already uses chat every day. This partnership allows users to create free FIO handles through chat and even remap incoming transactions to any wallet anywhere. This means we can stop talking about public addresses and repeatedly confirming that we’re using the right blockchain and unreadable address.”
Alty joins over 40 major wallets, exchanges and crypto payment processors that have integrated FIO Protocol features into their products. To celebrate this launch, FIO and Alty have teamed up for a three-part giveaway awarding 100,000 in $FIO token prizes, the prize pool distributions for each phase are: FIO Crypto Handle Registration — $45,000 in FIO tokens, FIO Request — $45,000 in FIO tokens and $10,000 in FIO tokens to be distributed during the AMA. Contest opens July 7th, 2022.
