New tool lets you send and receive Bitcoins for free

(FINANCE NEWS) With PayPal, Chase, and Apple Pay, the need for cash (or even a wallet) is becoming less necessary. Now, the same is true for bitcoins. While this was never something that was in your wallet to begin with, there is now an app that allows you to send and receive bitcoins.

Yep, there is indeed an app for that

Back in the day, if you needed something done that you could not accomplish yourself, you would find “a guy” for that. Need your taxes done? You’ve got a guy for that. Need the air conditioning in your car fixed? You’ve got a guy for that.

As the times change, so does the need for a Rolodex full of “guys”. Now, if you need something, you’ve got an app for that.

In my repertoire of apps alone, I have an app for meditation, an app for weather, and an app for banking. And, that’s just an extremely small percentage of what is available for smartphone users.

Something that’s become popular through apps is different forms of payment. With PayPal, Chase, and Apple Pay, the need for cash (or even a wallet) is becoming less necessary.

Now, the same is true for bitcoins. While this was never something that was in your wallet to begin with, there is now an app that allows you to send and receive bitcoins.
