Electroneum is becoming increasingly known for its revolutionary new digital payments ecosystem that allows anyone to store, send and receive digital funds via their smartphone thanks to an innovative hybrid distributed ledger technology (DLT) system. In terms of the two main components of this hybrid, it is possible to make the following distinction between two electroneums:

Electroneum’, with a capital ‘E’, refers to Electroneum Ltd.—a company registered in England—and its comprehensive platform and infrastructure, inc. an online wallet provision, related mobile phone Apps, an Instant Payment system, etc.


electroneum’, with a small ‘e’, refers to a blockchain: an open source project—originally forked off the Monero blockchain—distributed over a network of computers (nodes and miners) utilising blockchain specific protocols.



How are the two connected?
Basically Electroneum has been developing a brilliant platform that “talks to” the electroneum blockchain.

The net result?
A highly compelling approach to overcoming certain limitations of blockchain technology.

But is one more fundamental than the other?
Depends on how you look at it. On the surface of it, electroneum the blockchain doesn’t “need” Electroneum but the same isn’t necessarily true the other way around. 

So what’s ETN?
‘ETN’ is the exchange token of this hybrid system. It is a type of cryptoasset, a cryptographically stored representation of value which can be transferred, stored or traded electronically via DLT. ETN is what you store in your online or offline wallet, it is what you send and receive, as a form of payment, etc.

Since our formal inception in Feb 2018, we have been one of the most prolific supporters of Electroneum. We appreciate the challenges we envisage Electroneum is facing in realising its full potential and our hope is to support that journey as much as we can. If at times perhaps as a distant critical friend! 😉 

But joking aside—we remain impressed by Electroneum’s determination, perseverance, business acumen, foresight, willingness to think outside the box, as well as technical prowness. We firmly believe in Electroneum becoming a household name in the not so distant future.

Although Bitcoin—undoubtedly the most well know of all cryptocurrencies—has been around for a decade now, the majority of people around the world still have very little understanding of what cryptocurrencies are and how they work.

Taking Europe as an example, it has been estimated that around a third of European consumers haven’t even heard about cryptocurrencies—and hearing about them isn’t the same as understanding them! At the same time blockchain technology—a.k.a. digital ledger technology (DLT)—has been identified as one the 10 main disruptive technologies that will inevitably shape the future.

Lack of understanding of cyrptocurrencies, in general, and electroneum as an exchange token, in particular, will have a concrete effect not just on consumer and individual attitudes but on attitudes of businesses, too. Unless addressed and tackled, lack of awareness and insufficient understanding will continue to engender considerable barriers to adoption.

So with that in mind, the reason why we set up Electroneum Academy we believe is aptly summarised in our motto: our aim is to be ‘smoothing the learning-curve, supporting mass adoption’!
