Electroneum Introduces a Smartphone that Rewards Users with ETN

The newly launched M1 is Electroneum’s Android-based smartphone that incentivizes users with Electroneum tokens (ETN). ETN can be used to purchase airtime and data, and also for shopping. An M1 costs $80 and is said to be initially available only in South Africa

With our experience in tech, we were able to gather a world-class team consisting of telecommunications, manufacturing, emerging area mobile-operators, product design and marketing specialists, all helping to make this utopian vision of ours a reality.

Richard Ells, CEO of Electroneum

Electroneum took a first step to springboard cryptocurrency mass adoption. The M1 smartphone has functionality that includes 4G and dual-sim. It is equipped with the Electroneum app that enables Cloud Mining giving their users the ability to earn ETN direct from the device.

With a few straightforward interactions, mining can start on the free app. Once the steps are completed, mining can perpetuate offline. This extends the boundaries for mining cryptocurrencies beyond the need to purchase expensive mining rigs. The $80 Android phone comes preloaded with ETN. ETN can be used for mobile top-ups for airtime and data, and paying for online goods and services.

CryptoVibes cites that users in South Africa, where the phone is currently available, need to have a SIM from service provider, The Unlimited. Once the phone is geared with the SIM, airtime and data top-ups can be done direct from the Electroneum app. However, BusinessWire reports the M1 gives opportunities for consumers in the ‘developing world’ to own a smartphone without a hefty price tag.

Richard Ells, CEO of Electroneum, says that the building the M1 is the outcome of team effort. ‘Without the broad range of talent and expertise, we could never have imagined the possibility of making a product of this caliber accessible for anyone in the world,’ he continues.

Expanding to the Rest of the World

According to CryptoVibes, Electroneum plans to begin with one South African city then extend to another two in three months time. This is the first real-world trial, done to acquire crucial knowledge. Information gathered in the test phase will enable the company to strategize on how to reach more countries with their product offering.

XRP: Bitfi adds XRP after Bitrue listing; cites ‘mass adoption’ as key reason

The XRP community has been in the news multiple times recently due to its activity online and the sheer force of user interactions on social media platforms. The clamoring for mass adoption seems to have received a boost as Bitfi, a popular cryptocurrency wallet, announced that they would be adding XRP to its arsenal. The organization tweeted: “You asked, we listened. XRP is launching in Bitfi soon. And no, it is not like Bitcoin, poses no threat to Bitcoin, & serves a completely different purpose. Let’s keep an open mind & make the entire community stronger. Spread the love  #xrp #ripple” The news garnered a lot of positive reviews from the community and the crypto-verse, with many calling it a piece of “good news”. Post the listing of XRP, many users were also clamoring for the addition of Tezos. To this Bitfi replied: “Tezis is very high on the priority list.” Another Twitter user, Teodor Andrei, stated: “This is a good news, I HODL #XRP” Bitfi claimed that XRP addition was another step in the wave of mainstream adoption because the platform was mainly Bitcoin-friendly. XRP also got another morale boost when Bitrue added XRP base pairs against three cryptocurrencies. The three pairs would be DASH/XRP, BAT/XRP, and STORM/XRP. The exchange upgraded their wallet for XRP and resumed deposits and withdrawals of XRP on March 23, 2019. Bitrue also revealed its future plans for the coin as an XRP airdrop was announced, with a 7.3% interest program for XRP in the works. @plitern1, a Twitter user, commented: “Thank you for the continued roll-out of XRP base pairs! This is how the whole ecosystem of crypto starts to mature as a whole: The diminishing correlation to the Btc peg. It’s not only great for #XRP but for everyone that likes crypto & wants crypto as a whole to succeed.” The post XRP: Bitfi adds XRP after Bitrue listing; cites ‘mass adoption’ as key reason appeared first on AMBCrypto.
