What is Electroneum?

Electroneum offers an instant payment system through their mobile-phone based crypto platform. There are currently over a billion adults around the world which are unbanked and Electroneum's project goals are to become the quickest and safest crypto transaction platform, that has minimal fees to support the world's unbanked population. It acquired a patent in April 2018, which allows for Electroneum to successfully process instant transactions.

Electroneum History

The project was launched in September 2017, after being formed in July, earlier that year by Richard Ells. It was originally built on the Monero codebase, which was aimed towards the gambling and gaming industry, before completely changing their sight to an instant payment across borders. To support this change, they moved over to a new blockchain, which is a moderated proof of responsibility (PoR) blockchain in 2019. Their wallet manager was launched in December 2017, as a way of giving individuals who only have access to smartphones, a payment option which is cheap and easy to use, as well as being accessible all over the world. In 2019, AnyTask, which is the first freelance platform created around a digital economy for developing countries was launched by Richard Ells, the CEO of Electroneum.

Benefits of Buying Flights with Electroneum (ETN)?

Super Fast Transactions

Unlike traditional fiat currencies, that can take multiple days to process a transaction, ETN has the ability to be transferred to almost anyone, anywhere in the world instantly and almost at no cost too.


Electroneum has become one of the most secure blockchains in existence, as it has become immune to the 51% attack, which is known as blockchain's largest threat. They've achieved this title through multiple initiatives, such as moving to a permmissioned, moderated network, as well as authenticating and selecting their validators, with the implementation of an upgraded moderation layer. The layer is not active when the network is running smoothly, but if there's a possible attack, it'll be able to locate where it's originating from and shut down the compromised validators.

Green Blockchain

When Electroneum switched over to a moderated blockchain, it meant that the energy needed by each Blockchain validor got reduced massively to only 10% of the energy used by an average UK household.
