GoByte has released their mobile app which allows merchants to bypass charges while accepting digital currency and provides consumers with a seamless and easy-to-use shop experience.
GoByte Pay mobile is available today on the iOS app store and on google play for Android and offers free payment solution which is accessible to any business owner while remaining secure and hack-resistant. The app has an elegant design and is easy for both new and experienced users, as reported in the official project’s blog.

The first version of the app has everything a user needs to send and receive payments and keep track of their transactions while remaining as easy-to-use as an ordinary mobile app and secure as a bank account. High-level security is ensured by additional anti-hack protection; TouchID and FaceID are used along with a password for better protection of assets.
The developers have also refined the existing cryptocurrency payment solutions and included wider functionality for an ordinary trader, investor or merchant needs:
- Synchronized access
All transactions are synchronized and available on the desktop and on mobile in real-time, so no matter where you access GoByte Pay, you are always up to date.
- QR code payment
GoByte Pay supports instant fund transfers using QR code either at a point of sale or via smartphone and PC. For sending or receiving the payment in one swipe it’s enough to scan QR code or paste the necessary address.
- Automatic conversion
Live conversion built into the wallet allows for instant tracking of the currency rate and shows the current balance in USD.
- Full transaction history
In the transactions session, full details are disclosed to give a user real-time control of the expenditure and incoming resources.
- Built-in address book
The easy-to-use address book makes it simple to keep the addresses of recipients, who are sent money frequently, in one central location to make it easy peasy to schedule and manage future transactions.
- Push notifications
The team has enabled push notifications in the mobile app so users will be immediately updated when they receive a payment or anything happens with the GoByte app.
The easy-to-use intuitive interface creates a welcoming place for managing money on the GoByte network. With the expansion of supported currencies in the near future, GoByte users will enjoy an application with among the most beautiful UI/UX experience and its powerful capabilities.
The naming/ tagging capabilities and all the other characteristics, which make GoByte Pay among the most powerful web wallet creation providers, are now available in the mobile version, meaning users can easily categorize all their transactions for business and personal, based on their needs.
Masternode holders were excited to see that they can manage their investment in Masternodes from the web interface and they will enjoy that same capability in the mobile app. With GoByte Pay they can make sure their investment is working for them anytime and anywhere.
Additionally, the application can solve the problem of poor adoption in retail stores by creating an API to help existing terminals easily connect to POS terminals. Along with InstantSend and free transactions, GoByte is planning to issue their own cryptocurrency debit cards, ATMs and POS terminals to further fuel the cryptocurrency payments popularity.
According to Huffington Post, vending machine company, iVend was first to test GoByte Pay on their cryptocurrency payment enabled coffee machines. GoByte and iVend struck a deal to install GoByte Pay on all of iVend’s point of sale systems around the world.
“GoByte’s mission is to be the leader in making cryptocurrency payments easier for users and merchants around the world, through the GoByte Pay platform”, states Hisyam Nasir, CEO of GoByte. – “We are developing a simple, powerful and adaptable platform which includes features that small and large businesses require to accept and process cryptocurrency payments.”
According to developers, the application will be built in POS terminals, which support random switch between addresses, visual and sound indication of payments received, and what’s most important – work offline.
The GoByte team is planning to integrate Bitcoin, Litecoin, BitcoinCash, and other popular cryptocurrencies shortly to approach a wider audience.

The RSI chart shows the token recovering from an oversold position slowly, with the buying and selling pressure evening each other out.

Litecoin [LTC/USD] Technical Analysis: The bear continues to plunder the market
Litecoin [LTC], the 7th largest cryptocurrency that was created by Charlie Lee to provide compatibility and support to Bitcoin has not been doing well in the market, of late. The coin was booming earlier this year but has now slumped lower than ever to move sideways.
At the time of writing, LTC dumped by 1.77% in the cryptocurrency market. It is trading at $52.34 with a market cap of over $3 billion and a 24-hour trading volume of $267.4 million.
In the timeframe of 1-hour LTC candlesticks, the support is set at $53.02. The downtrend line from $60.7 to $53.9 is likely to form a descending triangle with the support. Hence, the market for Litecoin appears to be downwards.
The MA line in the MACD indicator touched the signal for a bullish crossover but strung back down to run underneath it. This is suggestive of a slump in the LTC price trend.
Next, the RSI is also betting on a bear market for the cryptocurrency, currently taking a downhill walk to flash warning for a drop in price.
The Klinger Oscillator made a bullish crossover a while back but is currently crashing, suggesting a bad price trend for Litecoin.
In the 1-day scenario, the candlesticks appear to be experiencing a downward trend in the Litecoin market. Since May, the coin has broken multiple supports, including one at $53.3 and another at $51.7. Currently, the support is set at $53.2 and might act as the baseline for the descending triangle likely to be formed by the resistance line ranging from $179.1 to $54.3.
The Parabolic SAR is bullish on the LTC market wherein the dots are currently dancing below the candlesticks, uplifting the price trend of the coin.
The Chaikin Money Flow was in a balanced space for a while but is currently below the 0-line, crashing further down.
The Awesome Oscillator is also in the red-zone, flashing a danger sign for the cryptocurrency.
The technical analysis can be concluded by assuming a bearish trend for the Litecoin market since most of the indicators are evident in siding with a negative prediction. However, the Parabolic SAR in the 1-day timeframe looks positive of the situation, against all odds.
Bitcoin [BTC] can disrupt centralized banking and financial institutions, says Andreas M Antonopoulos
During a Q&A session, Andreas M Antonopoulos, the Author of Mastering Bitcoin and a well-known Bitcoin influencer, spoke about whether Bitcoin [BTC]’s price plays a significant role in its adoption. He also spoke about whether Bitcoin can disrupt the governments, financial system and reduce corruption if the cryptocurrency’s value does not greatly increase in value relative to goods and services including fiat currencies.
Antonopoulos stated that cryptocurrencies can disrupt centralized banking and financial institutions. This is because of the “mere fact” that cryptocurrencies exist as an exit system, a “safety vault” and as a “safe haven”, he said. Moreover, he said that the increase in Bitcoin’s price is not going to be the prominent player in bringing about the change. Whereas, Bitcoin being used by people in order to escape from oppressive governments who are stealing their citizen’s money will be a catalyst to bring about the change.
The author said:
“…it’s not values that makes it useful it’s utility that makes it valuable. So it’s the other way around so Bitcoin will increase in value if it’s useful and it doesn’t need to increase in value in order to be useful that’s confusing cause and effect”
Antonopoulos further spoke about Bitcoin’s real-world use-case for the unbanked. The author was questioned about why there were only 4 billion people using banks around the globe; whether it was due to improper identity proof, people’s lack of trust in the current financial system or if it was cost-effective for banks to not have branched in rural areas.
The Bitcoin influencer stated it was because of all the 3 above-mentioned reasons – lack of identity proof, access to banking facilities and distrust in the financial system. He further added that the total number of people around the world who do not have the ability to open a bank account was quite “shocking”. He went on to say that even if these people had access to the financial systems they would end up facing several restrictions, including the withdrawal and deposit limit.
“So even though the numbers are somewhere between two and a half billion and four billion people who have zero access to banking so cash based entirely, there’s also another two billion people who have access to banking but that access is severely restricted so they have access to perhaps one currency with very few choices they can’t change currencies…”
He further added:
“so it’s not really their money so all of this great sum of people who are either unbanked completely or under banked is one of the things that I think we may be able to solve with Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies in the long run”
