  • Banking the unbanked or under-banked
  • Putting personal, medical and financial data under the control of the individual
  • Providing decentralized, peer-to-peer, fast, world-wide, un-hackable, non-inflationary engineered currencies
  • Allowing individuals to buy, sell, lease, and hold title to property and land on public blockchains that are un-hackable and un-alterable, even by nation states
  • Digitizing assets and allowing creators to get paid for their work in a more direct way that allows them to control and profit from their work

Electroneum to update its blockchain

Electroneum announced that new code will be released on May 30 as its blockchain reaches Block 307500
26 April 2018   50

Electroneum announced its fork is scheduled to take place at block 307500 on May 30. The fork is special as it will not result in two currencies: this is achieved by allowing all the exchanges and pools to update their software in advance. The update covers the following aspects

  • anti-ASIC code:

the implementation of such code will ensure security against any network attack

  • increase of transfer fee:

to ensure Electroneum blockchain withstands blockchain flooding, base fee will be increased to 0.1 ETN

  • block size increase before penalty:

the increase will allow miners to scale the blocks faster and get more transactions into a block

  • disabling of RingCT and Mixin:

disabling some privacy features with letting wallets remain private will get a less wait to fit a transaction into a block and a leaner blockchain size

  • 3 days mempool life:

it will ensure a reduction of the possibility of the returned transactions

Readers will be able to find the rest of the remaining details of the update here. As for the market indicators for Electroneum, here is what they look like at the moment of publication:

  • Average price   $0.024453
  • Market cap         $166,770,279
  • Volume (24H)    $1,234,100
