It is evident there is a growing demand for VoIP-based services in the bitcoin world. By using bitcoin payments, users can retain a certain degree of privacy when making use of global VoIP features. A new Android app called Bitcoin disposable VoIP phone has appeared in the Google Play Store which seemingly provides all of this functionality and more.
A Bitcoin-capable VoIP Service
It is always worth noting new mobile applications from an unknown third-party developer need to be treated with a lot of caution. No one knows for sure what the goal of these applications is, as there have been multiple malicious mobile apps targeting bitcoin users in the past. The bitcoin disposable VoIP phone app seems like a legitimate solution, but one can never be too careful.
That being said, this new application aims to provide valuable services to bitcoin users all over the world. There is no purchase requirement to download the app, yet buying voice and text minutes will be necessary to use any of the services. Users of this application will have access to a second phone number that can be used on both Android phones and tablets alike.
Among the supported features are sending text messages as well as the option to make and receive calls. There are no roaming charges involved in the process, which is a nice touch. For now, US, Canadian, and UK phone numbers are supported, with more to be added in the future. A disposable phone number can go a long way these days, regardless of what type of activity one conducts on a daily basis.
Users can pre-purchase packages for unlimited talk & text or use the pay-as-you-go model. All things considered, the Bitcoin disposable VoIP phone can be quite a powerful application for a lot of cryptocurrency enthusiasts. Whether or not such an app will have any success in the long run, remains to be seen. Make sure to check out the application in the Google Play Store, yet remain cautious when sending bitcoins to an unknown third party.
