Ben can help users understand the basics of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies while providing updates on industry news

A new chatbot named Ben is here to help you understand Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies with accessible and easy-to-understand terminology. The chatbot allows users to check up on the latest industry news, take some lessons on the subject and even buy and sell Bitcoin for a 1% transaction fee. It also has a social aspect, where friends can track each other's investment progress in percentage form and know who's doing the best.

A tool like Ben definitely makes the buying and selling of Bitcoin a smoother experience for those just looking to make some extra cash, but who aren't about to spend serious time getting technical. It's a platform for Bitcoin newbies and covers the basics, but according to TechCrunch it wouldn't be the right place for those who own a high-value portfolio and require advanced security. This app is safe enough, as you can access your crypto-cash with your smartphone only—and in case you lose it, Ben provides you with a backup seed.

The chatbot app is available via Google Play and the App Store.
