Electroneum is set out to be a mass adopted long-term cryptocurrency and most definitely is advanced enough to maintain a consolidated position in the market. On 6th of March 2018, Electroneum released a new app which enables users of smartphones to mine cryptocurrencies on their phones or tablets. This new service has the capability to bring an exponential surge in prices of cryptocurrencies. Hence this app is estimated to be downloaded by several enthusiasts in the cryptoverse.

The process has been simplified so that new miners, who are not essentially cryptoenthusiasts, can also be tempted to use the app. This would bring help Electroneum garner mainstream momentum. Electroneum is the first cryptocurrency that allows users to mine coins with a mobile phone. The process is simple as all you have to do is download the app. No other cryptocurrency has a mining system that allows users to mine coins with so much convenience. This is a very crucial step as cryptocurrencies can become a household trend only if their usages become easy and convenient for the common man.

With the increase in the emergence of crypto exchanges like these, experts believe that a 1 dollar price is projected to be a reality soon. Very little electricity and only a small amount of data are needed to allow any owner of a specific smartphone like an android phone to make some money mining. As more and more people are turning to the use of smartphones, growth in the popularity of ETN seems an inevitable phenomenon. The CEO of ETN, Richard Ells has reassured that the use of this app will not make the phones heat up, use a lot of battery or get worn out and slow down.

Data will be used only to communicate with the server for transactions. The CEO has also stated that the use of data will be so slow that smartphone users in the third world will also be able to benefit from the app in large numbers. The ETN team has designed an algorithm that assigns a user’s phone a mining rate based on available CPU power. Hence although the app will mine coins based on the CPU capacity of your phone, it will actually not require any CPU power.

While ETN is consistently in the top 50 market capitalization as of late, it seems inevitable that the cryptocurrency is headed for even more progress in the near future. 0.07 cents is deemed to be only a temporary sale. ETN is not even available on major changes like Binance. If the mobile mining app becomes a success, then ETN will be finding its way on such changes.

Electroneum websites say that they are currently in negotiation with some big global conglomerates that are very interested in adding Electroneum digital payments as means of payment for their services. Electroneum has more than a million agents in developing nations who sell or trade data to consumers. With the increasing acceptance of Electroneum as a regular means of payment, the crypto will no longer just remain confined to tech-savvy enthusiasts but will trickle down to mass use amongst common people as well.

iPhone version

Electroneum has announced that their iPhone iOS version has been programmed and is fully functional but it has not been given the nod of approval by Apple. Apple will most likely approve of it once the app consolidates its base among android users.

Electroneum rise to top 50 market cap

Electroneum combines blockchain and cryptocurrency with the ubiquity of mobile phone users. Designed to be used by the masses, a lot of the major deals made by the ETN team are with mobile providers. With over 120,000 contributors, Electroneum ICO closed two weeks early due to reaching 40 million dollars hard cap much faster than was expected. This is most certainly one of the most successful crowdfunding events witnessed in the cryptocurrency community. ETN’s app for crypto mining makes it possible for the users of the particular cryptocurrency to mine coins without having to resort to the need for expensive and complex hardware. Due to the everyday advancement of technology, what once was possible on computers is now possible on smartphones. Electroneum has emerged as one of the leading cryptocurrencies in terms of technological breakthrough.

Reasons Why You Are Much Safer When Crypto Trading on Dexes

DEXes

While many cryptocurrencies aim to bring the change to the world by bringing full decentralization, one aspect of the crypto space still remains mostly centralized, and that is the way they are exchanged. Most crypto exchanges are centralized companies, where traders and investors need to deposit their coins for safekeeping. This is a risky way to handle the funds, as exchanges remain susceptible to hacks and theft, as many realized recently, after the hack of the world’s largest exchange by trading volume, Binance.

During the hack, around 7,000 BTC (over $40 million) was taken, and sent to multiple wallets, never to be seen again — for now, at least. The hack also came as quite a shock, as Binance was known for its efficiency, security, and high levels of confidence. It also made people realize that their coins are not really theirs if they need to rely on third parties, such as exchanges, to keep them safe. As a result, many are now turning away from centralized exchanges, and are heading towards decentralized ones — also known as DEXes.

Here are some reasons why you might want to consider doing the same.

1. True ownership of your coins

The crypto community has a saying: “not your keys, not your coins.” The saying is now more relevant than ever, but it does not apply on DEXes. Decentralized exchanges

Crypto prices are once again going up, and Bitcoin has just passed a major resistance level at $6,000. With a situation like that, it is not surprising that everyone in the crypto community is looking forward to the future, wondering what to expect in years to come. Many experts have already given their predictions, some more optimistic than others, but almost all bullish.

Crypto billionaire Mike Novogratz has always been very supportive of cryptocurrencies, and very bullish on Bitcoin. He recently stated that he sees the coins’ prices triple in the following 18 months, meaning that Bitcoin’s return to $20,000 might not be far away, according to him.

He noted that Bitcoin is back to $6,000 after its price hit as low as $3,100 only a few months ago. These days, Novogratz does not believe Bitcoin will return to such lows unless there is a devastating exchange hack or a major shift in regulations. Of course, there was a big hack that had the potential to damage the coin’s price, only days ago. The world’s largest crypto exchange by trading volume, Binance, saw a significant security breach which resulted in a theft of 7,000 BTC.

However, so far, the coin did not react negatively to this incident. While Novogratz believed that such an event would shatter the new confidence in BTC, it simply did not happen. However, he…

Corporate executives are turning to blockchain technology more than ever in an attempt to revolutionize the business world.  Although blockchain is still a relatively new concept, that hasn’t stopped more and more companies from jumping on the bandwagon.  This hot new technology has quickly gained a reputation for providing greater transparency, enhanced security, improved traceability, increased efficiency, and low costs.  One industry that could certainly benefit from decentralization is the online gambling market, specifically, online casinos.  TokenRoll (TKR) has developed a platform that appears to offer a promising alternative to centralized casinos.

Problems with Centralized Casinos

The primary reason why blockchain technology is being implemented so quickly is because it solves a lot of the problems typically associated with the traditional business model.  And online casinos are no different.  It still needs to be said that centralized casinos have proven that there is a great demand for online gambling.  The market is growing faster than anyone could have predicted, and future opportunities appear very promising and lucrative.  But industries are continually evolving and this one is no different.

A few of the problems facing centralized casinos include the following:

  • Little to no transparency
  • Consumer lack of confidence
  • Privacy concerns
  • 48-72 hour wait time for withdrawals

These are four monumental issues that need to be addressed quickly given the global growth of the market.  Casinos need to…
