We have started a collaboration with the popular iMe Telegram-based messenger app to integrate the Elrond Network in their non-custodial wallet solution and thus enabling EGLD and ESDT token transfers between Telegram contacts.

The iMe Messenger and Crypto Wallet app connects to the popular Telegram communications infrastructure, which connects over half a billion people. The iMe app already has more than 2.5 million users and is rapidly growing thanks to the valuable features it adds on top of the out-of-the-box Telegram experience.

The iMe platform includes a safe Telegram-based messaging ecosystem, neurobots in chats, built-in Google translator, functional Cloud, transcribing voice messages to text, and many others.

The feature that stands out the most, especially in the crypto community, is the ability to create a non-custodial wallet and integrate it with the iMe messenger. This allows users to store and send tokens to their Telegram contacts with ease.

We are working together to integrate the Elrond mainnet into the iMe app so that every iMe user that sets up the crypto component automatically gets an Elrond wallet as well, enabling them to store, send and receive EGLD and ESDT tokens.

“The seamless integration of EGLD payments and ESDT token transfers into popular communication networks, via creative and engaging apps such as the iMe Messenger, represents a rapid path for adoption of Elrond Network technology by hyperconnected demographics” said Beniamin Mincu, Elrond Network CEO.
“Elrond Network has one of the most active and engaged communities in the crypto space, and their tech enables the exact kind of blazing transfer speeds that we want the iMe Messenger user base to enjoy. By integrating iMe and Elrond technologies, EGLD and ESDT will be transferable with two clicks through our safe messaging ecosystem.” said Alex Borutskiy, iMe Co-Founder.

About Elrond

Elrond is a new blockchain architecture, designed from scratch to bring a 1,000-fold cumulative improvement in throughput and execution speed. To achieve this, Elrond introduces two key innovations: a novel Adaptive State Sharding mechanism, and a Secure Proof of Stake (PoS) algorithm, enabling linear scalability with a fast, efficient, and secure consensus mechanism. Thus, Elrond can process upwards of 10,000 transactions per second (TPS), with 5-second latency, and negligible cost, attempting to become the backbone of a permissionless, borderless, globally accessible internet economy.
