The blockchain-based digital payment project noted its platform had weathered the hardships. However, in only 30 months since its launch, its ETN token is being used to top up mobile airtime and data in not less than 140 countries from within the Electroneum mobile app. Also, the platform noted it has nearly 2,000 merchants and service providers around the world accepting ETN payments.
Speaking on its growing adoption, Ells said, “Electroneum has more real-world adoption than virtually every other cryptocurrency project out there.
“We have achieved many outstanding objectives in the 30 months since our launch after a record-breaking ICO by participants with 120,000. However, we have many years of hard work ahead of us as we aim to be in a well-deserved position among the top 10 cryptocurrencies in terms of utility,” he noted.
Bringing developing countries to crypto community
Electroneum has shown great resolve towards its vision of leaving no region behind. The digital payment platform recently launched ‘AnyTask’ initiative, a global freelance platform powered by Electroneum.
AnyTask in the space of about three months has recorded over 460,000 individuals. Who have registered to the blockchain website as either sellers or buyers.
