GoTenna produces antennae that are useable with smartphones to communicate by text with other smartphones using goTenna devices.
In May 2018 the company announced that it was launching a bitcoin wallet in cooperation with Samourai Wallet that can function without the user being connected to the internet. "You need to be able to spend your bitcoin even in disaster areas," according to goTenna engineer Richard Myers. Using goTenna's txTenna, the signal looks for another goTenna user which if enmeshed with other users looks for one connected to the internet in order to spend or collect bitcoin in the wallet.
