For this edition of our Monthly Buzz Backer, we’ll be considering the level of progress our Premium Backer, Merge has made in the last 30 days.

The idea of integrating crypto payments into social media is not entirely new. From Steemit to Brave, several blockchain projects are trying to make this possible. Merge’s Rocket is arguably the latest to join the team of innovators.

The platform doubles as a web wallet  and social media bot, allowing its users to deposit, transfer, and airdrop coins. Rocketbot's multi-coin web wallet acts as a central access point to the social media bot accounts of users. At the moment, users can securely link their wallets to Telegram and Discord. Plans are already on the way to include Twitter by December 2020, and Facebook by Janaury 2021.

Once a social media account is linked, the user will be able to access all the functionality of the bot from a single Rocketbot wallet. Users can also subscribe to news channels and tip community members on social platforms.

Rocket is the bot that bridges the divide between cryptocurrencies and social media.

It is also worth adding that the app currently supports only 10 coins, with plans to expand its product offering. Supported assets include MERGE, PIVX, UltraGate, Litecoin, DOGE, Streamit, Martkist, and French Digital Reserve tokens. Meanwhile, the Rocket is accepting new coin applications. Listing fee is FREE with Merge tokenomics.

Although the service is essentially free, there are some limits. Users can increase their limits by time locking Merge tokens. This “lock” mechanism functions as an anti-spamming feature. This is quite important because spamming can be a serious problem with tipping bots.

Overall, Rocket has a minimalist design and is very easy to use.
