Facebook Bot and Wyre’s WeChat Verify Invoices on Ethereum
US blockchain payments firm Wyre has launched a new bot for Facebook Messenger and WeChat that authenticates invoices through a public blockchain.
In WeChat or Messenger, a supplier sends the transaction details to the Wyre bot, which will generate and email a PDF invoice to all parties.
The invoice is then hashed and stamped onto an ethereum blockchain every hour to verify where it came from.
Scamming people with fake invoices is too easy, said Michael Dunworth, CEO and founder of Wyre.
Last month for example, tech giants Google and Facebook allegedly fell prey to forged invoices and phishing attacks, losing $100m in the process.
