Electroneum to the RescueCommenting on the reason for choosing a cryptocurrency for payment, Michael Stevens explained that he was impressed by the Electroneum community and after due feasibility studies on the world of cryptocurrencies, believed that the ETN community would help with his cause.
“[…]I became fascinated with the crypto world and the positive impact it could have on people’s lives, particularly in third world countries. I watched hundreds of hours of YouTube video, read countless white papers and investigated the teams attached to each project.” He said.
“In the end, I was especially impressed by the Electroneum community and I believe they will make a real contribution to this campaign and the work C.L.A.S.S is doing […]” he added.The Electroneum project was created and is especially focused on mobility and mass movement. Integrated with an instant payment system, it was aimed at rejuvenating the purpose for the creation of cryptocurrencies. As such, the Electroneum system processes payment faster and free.
Electroneum Takes One Step Towards Mass AdoptionAs established before, Electroneum is aimed at mass adoption and with Michael Stevens turning to Electroneum for a charity fundraising that would call for consensus,the coin appears to have moved a step closer to its goal. Richard Ells, Founder of Electroneum, commented about the development after empathizing with the reason behind the fundraising campaign.
“[…]thrilled that our currency is being used as a means of raising funds, alongside traditional currencies and PayPal.”Being a mobile cryptocurrency, having a legitimate stand with regulators via its KYC compliance and plans of a Virtual Currency Exchange in the works makes it a prime target for mass adoption. It is hoped by the Electroneum community that this precedes massive adoption and more bullish turns for the cryptocurrency.
