I recently sat down to speak with Founder and CEO of Electroneum (ETN), Richard Ells.

Electroneum is a cryptocurrency that was founded nearly two years ago and has come out swinging following the crypto winter following Bitcoins retrace from it’s 2017 all-time highs.

In the years since, Richard and his team at Electroneum have not wasted any time at all; building and improving upon their blockchain, moving to a mining model that makes them the greenest cryptocurrency out there, and helping with their primary mission of banking the unbanked and bringing people out of poverty. 

Richard goes into the various phases of Electroneum’s agenda, to which they are still in phase one.

I learn about Electroneum’s mission to gain mass adoption in the unbanked world via the creation of a two-sided marketplace in a Fiverr-like fashion, their “Proof Of Responsibility” model of work, partnerships with cellular companies in Brazil, businesses in Uganda accepting ETN, and so much more in this dynamic chat.

I also find out Richard’s take on other cryptocurrencies including bitcoin, his views on regulation, and how future asteroid mining could impact the cryptocurrency space. Come check out the interview below!
