It would be amazing if you could take a few moments of your time to Tweet a reply to vote for ETN to be listed.
2. Electroneum has expanded mobile top up to over 140 countries
In yet another great step towards changing the lives of millions of people, Electroneum has expanded in-app mobile phone airtime and data top-up to over 140 countries reaching nearly 4 billion mobile phone users!
The rollout is following a successful trial
You may know that we’ve been trialling ETN to airtime top up in countries such as South Africa, Turkey, Brazil, Uganda, Tanzania, and Nigeria. Well, following a fantastic initial test period, we’ve rolled it out around the world to a huge list of countries.
We now offer Electroneum users the opportunity to top up using their ETN from a list of 600 major MNOs and MVNOs (mobile virtual network operators). These include almost every large network operator you’ve ever heard of.
This is going to be even more exciting as users continue to earn ETN through AnyTask.com and we give them even more ways to spend. If you haven’t already…There’s now a really good reason to list a task on AnyTask.com.
Meanwhile to top up your airtime and data, simply log into your Electroneum app and select your country from the ‘Top Up’ menu. Don’t forget to let us know what you think in the community forum! Even more countries will be added later!
3. Electroneum is now live on the Biki exchange
We’ve added another fantastic exchange to our list, with Singapore-based Biki! Biki.com opened for deposits at 18:00 GMT +8 on Wednesday, 19 February and trading opens today (25th February) at the same time.
Biki is the fastest growing exchange in the world and we’re one of the fastest growing cryptocurrencies. With AnyTask.com allowing users across the world to earn ETN, relationships with key exchanges like Biki allows an easy way for people and companies to trade that ETN for other cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin.
The new listing will also be great for increasing awareness of Electroneum to new users in Asia, as well as supporting our joint ongoing commitment to encourage adoption of cryptocurrency around the world.
Biki ETN competition
To celebrate them adding ETN to their awesome exchange, the fabulous team at Biki will be running an exciting giveaway of 5,000,000 ETN in a trading contest. From today at 18:00 GMT +8, users with the highest ETN trading volume will share 5,000,000 ETN in proportion to their total transaction volume. Visit Biki.com for more information.
4. AnyTask Platform Update
As you’ll remember from my last community update, AnyTask.com, the freelancer platform powered by ETN, went live with invited sellers last month and since then, it has gone from strength to strength.
We now have over 100,000 users signed up to the platform. In addition over 1,000 users have successfully listed a task. Some have even seen multiple purchases of their tasks already!
With the success so far, we can now clearly demonstrate the real world use case for ETN and how it can help a huge number of people. They don’t need to have a bank account to reach customers across the world and get paid in ETN for their amazing skills, from social posting, photo editing, logo design, tarot card reading, online teaching, animation and more.
If you have a digital skill, come and sell it on AnyTask.com!
We’ve already seen a great response from our invited sellers, with more and more buyers getting involved in a fairer freelance platform. Now, ahead of schedule, we’ve opened the platform to sellers across to the entire world, so if you have a digital skill, sign up at AnyTask.com and start earning ETN now.
It’s simple, create a profile and list a task, telling us what you’re great at and how much you’d like to be paid. Once we’ve verified your listing, it will be available to buyers from anywhere to request your services and what’s great is there are no seller-fees! Even better, we’ll pay you in ETN, so no longer will not having a bank account mean you can’t be part of the global digital economy!
We are DISRUPTING an already DISRUPTIVE industry! We’ve seen great feedback for sellers offering skills for just one dollar! A fifth of the lowest price on Fiverr. As buyers find this new marketplace, we open earning opportunities all over the world to people who very often earn less than 100 dollars per month.
Our buyer ad campaigns have started
As promised when we started to recruit sellers, we had a beautiful campaign of social and digital advertising lined up, ready to launch, when we had enough tasks listed. These ads are now launched, with some great feedback from our community and fans. You can check out some of our great ads here, and as always, we’d love to hear from our community on any other great ideas for ads that they have. You never know, your idea could come to life in our next campaign.
These ads are helping us to drive hundreds of buyers to AnyTask.com, which means more tasks sold and more ETN earned by our sellers! We will be ramping this to thousands and then tens of thousands!
Showcase your AnyTask skills on video and earn up to 150 US Dollars in ETN!
We want to let our seller’s skills speak for themselves to attract buyers, and what better way to do that than by getting our sellers to create their own videos demonstrating their task?
Not only does this make your profile stand out, as videos attract even more attention, but you could also earn up to 150 US Dollars in ETN. If you’re one of the first 1,000 videos uploaded, we’ll rate your video and reward you with up to 50 US Dollars in ETN. Each user can upload up to three videos to get to that awesome 150 ETN bonus! Check out our community forum post to see what we’re looking for.
5. Electroneum M1 smartphone flies off the shelves in Cambodia
The Electroneum M1 phone was created specifically for users in developing regions. It’s a great, affordable Android phone with features users actually need! And more importantly, straight out of the box, users can enjoy ETN Rewards, so it’s a phone that pays you back.
Now, thanks to our agreement with Cambodia’s fastest-growing MNO, Cellcard, we’ve been able to get the M1 phone into the hands of hundreds of new users across the country, who for many, especially in rural areas, are moving from feature phones to entry-level smart phones. In fact, the handset has been such a hit with users in Cambodia, the first crypto phone manufactured by a blockchain startup has flown off the shelves. The Cellcard and Electroneum collaboration agreement is the first-ever between an MNO and a cryptocurrency and we’re excited to work with such a fantastic company that cares passionately about its users, just like us.
Thank you for taking the time to read this announcement and being part of Electroneum.
Have a great week everyone!

EDC Blockchain and ECRO System in the List of Major Blockchain Events 2019!

EDC Blockchain and ECRO System in the List of Major Blockchain Events 2019!
https://preview.redd.it/1n0i4hayx4a41.jpg?width=1307&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=a1ddf95e43b81cacc10b29824c162c2d19bc2fc0
2019 showed that the Blockchain industry justifies the status of a technological revolution. Bitcoin's capitalization exceeded that of countries such as Turkey, Pakistan and South Africa. And China, India, and Nigeria have already bought cars, real estate and various services for an EDC coin!
Let's think about these and other events of last year, which had the greatest resonance.
Adoption of the cryptography law in China
Speculation and fiction are officially over! China at the state level said "yes" to Blockchain technology! The Chinese Communist Party now directly manages the Central Cryptography Agency. The agency will promote and support cryptography research, protect intellectual property rights and promote the development of public/private key technology, according to Primitive Foundation partner Dovey Wan.
Against this background, the Central Bank of China started talking about creating its own stablecoin, and Chinese President Xi Jinping said that the blockchain will be the main technology for important innovation breakthroughs! The Crypto market reacted instantly: bitcoin rose by more than $2000 in one week of October (from $7500 to $9500), while EDC quotations reached 1 US cents. The optimism then decreased again when it became clear that the Chinese are still fundamentally distinguishing between the notions of "Blockchain" and "Cryptocurrencies".
Bitcoin futures launch
On September 23, 2019, ICE Corporation (International Exchange) started trading daily and month bitcoin futures on the Bakkt platform.
The platform was officially approved by the U.S. Futures Trading Commission (CFTC), and bitcoin deposits of users are insured for $125 million.
The appearance of this platform was associated with certain expectations: the growth of bitcoin to $ 20,000, and the accession of institutional investors. As we already know, these forecasts did not come true, and the peak daily trading volume did not exceed $43 million. Nevertheless, the expectations from this news remain high: both the prestige and liquidity of the market can only improve.
Project Libra's failure
On June 18, the release of Facebook's own cryptographic currency called Libra was to be launched. By all primary signs, the coin could become a market favorite, and the project participants included Visa, Mastercard, eBay, and other major online platforms.
However, it did not work out: problems with regulators reached the hearings in the U.S. Congress, where Mark Zuckerberg himself had to personally promise that Libra will not be launched until all regulators approve of it, and Facebook may even leave the founders.
Project stoppage TON
GRAM Token from Telegram is another "loser" in the big games of life. The developers managed to make the initial offer (ICO) for 1.7 billion dollars and even presented a compiled test wallet. But the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) expressed confidence that GRAM at the token trading stage was sold illegally, falling under the definition of a security.
Now Pavel Durov is facing long legal proceedings, and the project is frozen for an indefinite period. This "triumph" of U.S. market regulators once again underscores the fact that big money at the stage of the birth of new players on the crypto market plays a much smaller role than the real value of coins and technology.
EDC Blockchain Coin constructor for entrepreneurs
Producers of goods and services and businessmen in various niches can now create their own bonus token or a full-fledged cryptographic currency using PoS mining without having at their disposal a team of IT professionals, ICO access opportunities or huge investments. Specialists of the EDC Blockchain platform offered the market a technological coin constructor and ready-made package solutions for the development of small and medium businesses.
It has never been easier to token and scale any project or startup. The constructor is available to all users of the EDC platform, which offers customers a number of bonuses (for example, an automatic listing of new coins on partner exchanges, marketing support and advertising at the level of its international community). A real step forward in business tokenization.
Start of a self-contained blockchain ecosystem ECRO System
Specialists of ECRO Chain Holding, under whose leadership ECRO System projects function, were able to create a "bridge" between the crypto industry and real business.
ECRO System provides an environment for cooperation between manufacturers, sellers and consumers anywhere in the world, including global marketplace, exchange, trading platform, a launching platform for startups, additional services and even an academy for educational purposes. In a global eco-system using a blockchain, a variety of goods and services are safely sold and purchased, any coins are exchanged conveniently and quickly, and new technology projects are made possible. And the ecosystem is expanding geographically by training its own marketers. Application of blockchain, technologies of an artificial intellect, a crypto-merchant allow ECRO System to create conditions for the reliable digital economy.
Crypto trading authorization for German banks
The Bundesrat passed a law allowing German banking institutions to officially sell and buy cryptocurrencies. Discussions in financial circles are still ongoing, as confidential transfers open up space for illegal transactions and money laundering. But the fact is that Vice-Chancellor of Germany Olaf Scholz advocated the creation of a national digital currency, and Sven Hildebrandt, head of the consulting company DLC, is confident that Germany will become a "cryptocurrency paradise".
Official cooperation of Ukraine with Binance Crypto Exchange
Binance International exchange has signed an official memorandum on cooperation with the Ministry of Digital Transformation of Ukraine. Popularization and legalization of the cryptographic industry in Ukraine led to a sharp increase in the interest of global exchange and trading services to start working in one of the largest European countries.
On November 6, the Verkhovna Rada adopted a draft law on the implementation of FATF rules, which regulates all basic concepts and legal aspects of virtual assets that can be considered as property or can be used for payment and investment purposes.
The draft law on asset tokenization, which will allow private and public companies to conduct commercial transactions with their assets in the form of tokens or crypto-stocks, is under development.
We are living at the peak of historical technology development when the speed of real technical changes outpaces even the speed of human imagination. The year 2020 could be a "quantum leap" in cryptographic technology around the world.
The world economy, as well as small and medium businesses, seems to be best prepared for the wide range of opportunities offered by the Blockchain. The EDC Blockchain and ECRO System project teams will continue to develop their products and services in order to maximize the quality of life of modern people through blockchain innovations. We wish you a successful 2020 year filled with new technologies!

Stellar Lumens vs Other Cryptocurrencies
Lumens vs. Bitcoin: Jed McCaleb spoke at Distributed Markets in 2017 about the advantages, but more importantly, the disadvantages of Bitcoin. Listen to the talk here. Jed said, “Bitcoin is this awesome innovation. The first thing it does is converts a real world resource, electricity, into a digital asset. So it takes something from the real world and puts it into the digital realm. The second thing it does is provides immutable public record. It’s basically a database that everyone can see but no one change arbitrarily… That’s great, Bitcoin solves the double spin problem [ of proving possession and transmitting volume]… [However, to fix the problems of bitcoin] you might think well maybe we’ll just kind of keep adding [software] to Bitcoin until we get there, but that’s not really the way software works. You want to have the design from the beginning and solve these simple issues. Bitcoin was designed to be a new currency, it wasn’t really designed to be this unifying universal payment network. So that’s what Stellar does. It solves these three remaining issues.”
Lumens vs. Bitcoin #2: According to wired.com, "Bitcoin mining guzzles energy - and it's carbon footprint just keeps growing." Wired says "Today, each bitcoin transaction requires the same amount of energy used to power nine homes in the US for one day... The total energy use of this web of hardware is huge—an estimated 31 terawatt-hours per year. More than 150 individual countries in the world consume less energy annually. And that power-hungry network is currently increasing its energy use every day by about 450 gigawatt-hours, roughly the same amount of electricity the entire country of Haiti uses in a year." Because Stellar is based on a consensus algorithm rather than mining, it takes much less energy to run the Stellar network. The Poseidon Foundation decided to build their platform on Stellar rather than Ethereum or Bitcoin because of this (twitter source).
Lumens ICO tokens vs. Ethereum ICO tokens: According to Stellar.org, "traditionally, ICO tokens have been issued on the Ethereum network in the form of ERC20 tokens. ERC20 tokens are easy to issue and are infinitely customizable using Ethereum’s smart contracting language. However, recent events have highlighted and exacerbated some weaknesses of the network, including slow transaction processing times for the network during ICOs and increasingly expensive gas prices (by fiat standards) for transactions and smart contract execution. Moreover, many organizations require only basic tokens; they adopt the risk of Ethereum’s Turing complete programming language without taking advantage of many of its benefits."
"While Ethereum has the most expressive programming capabilities, we believe Stellar is the best choice for ICOs that do not require complex smart contracts. Stellar’s primary goal is to facilitate issuing and trading tokens, especially those tied to legal commitments by known organizations, such as claims on real-world assets or fiat currency."
Stellar vs. Ethereum #2: The median transaction time on Stellar is 5 seconds, compared to approximately 3.5 minutes on Ethereum (source). Stellar has a negligible transaction fee (.00001 XLM ~= $0.0000002) with no gas fee for computation, while depending on the complexity of the computation, the median cost for a transfer on the Ethereum network is $0.094. Security: While both Stellar and Ethereum run on a decentralized network, the Stellar network has fewer security pitfalls. Stellar uses atomic transactions comprised of simple, declarative operations while Ethereum uses turing complete programming capabilities which produces less auditable code and greater risk of exploitable vulnerabilities (source). Recently, a security flaw in the Ethereum network froze millions of dollars. According to Mobius ariticle written by David Gobaud, "On November 6, 2017, Github user deveps199 'accidentally' triggered a bug in Parity, a popular Ethereum mult-sig wallet, that froze more than $152 million in Ether across 151 addresses. The bug impacted several token sales including Polkadot, which has had ~$98 million out of its recent $145 million sale frozen."
"Mobius had none of its ongoing pre-sale Ether frozen because we do not trust Ethereum’s Smart Contract based multi-sig wallets given the vast Turing complete attack surface and did not use one. Security broadly is one of the main reasons the MOBI token that powers the DApp Store is a Stellar Protocol token and not an Ethereum token."
Lumens vs. Ripple: According to Wall Street Bitcoin Exchange, "Many investors like to compare the company [Stellar] to Ripple, and there are a lot of similarities, being that some of the founders worked on the Ripple team. In what can now be looked at as another blockchain development drama that plays out on chat boards and in interviews all across the globe. Stellar declared they fixed Ripple’s problems with their hard fork, however, Ripple has failed to admit to any of the flaws in its design that the Stellar team has pointed out." The article concludes by saying, "We Choose XLM Over XRP For 2018. That is why we are going with Stellar Lumens over Ripple in our portfolio for the rest of 2017 and 2018. After holding Ripple for a long time this year, it just never seems to make the big break like other names with bigger market caps like Bitcoin Cash, Dash, and Litecoin have. While we are holding on most all our larger market caps, we feel that Stellar Lumens will be one of the break out coins for 2018."
.

Conclusion
The stellar.org team is doing an amazing job making partnerships and pioneering the use of blockchain technology for various types of transactions. What we are seeing is a new technology that can actually be used to solve real-world problems. As a community, we need to continue supporting Stellar and we will quickly see it power transactions across the world. What are your thoughts about Stellar? What do you see in the future of Stellar?

BTC currently offers $10,705, an increase of 1.52% in the day. In view of the current trend, the current BTC is still operating in the large falling triangle range of the first peak of 14,000 USD, and after the third downward touch of the triangle at the end of August, it has been in a continuous rebound trend for several days. It has also risen from the low of $9,400 to the current level of $10,700. The upper key resistance zone is between $10,800 and $11,000. It is also the main daily resistance trend line. If it can make a strong breakthrough, then from the end of June to the end of June. The callback trend during the beginning of the month may be reversed, and the BTC will likely be in the early stage of the bullish trend. In terms of technical graphics, BTC’s current triangle convergence trend is similar to the BTC’s bear market bottoming trend from December to early 1918. Both trends are in the upper and lower range of the triangle, and when the last time they touched the lower triangle line, The market sentiment has similarities: BTC continues to fall below $3,500, and most investors in the market feel that BTC is still not in the end, there is still room for decline, the market is generally bearish to around $2,000, and the panic greed index is below 20 Then, the BTC’s large Yangyang line increased in volume, and after a small correction, it came to a big Yangxian line, directly breaking through the triangular upper rail suppression, and then opened the slow-moving market with the bottom stepping up. At present, BTC hit the triangle lower rail last time. The market also generally believes that BTC may puncture the support line and then fall back below $9000. The panic greed index is also below 20, reflecting the panic of most investors at that time. The trend is always the opposite of most investors. BTC has once again started to rebound and has been rising to the current level of 10,700 US dollars. If the direct strength of the triangle is stabilized, it will be possible to directly open the upswing in the late period of slowing up.

Daily Performances
As expected we continue to see gappy moves in thin trading. $6,000 level will likely be a strong magnet given the large open interest in September options. Implied volatility is ticking up slowly despite tight ranges but it is unlikely the market can independently break out of the current consolidative phase without external catalysts.

Daily Performances
Nothing much has changed in the broad crypto landscape. BTC has remained comfortably above 20DMA despite the $6,000 level magnet, and also has been resilient to negative news. Light volumes still indicate a lack of conviction but $6,800-$7,000 range to the upside seems to be the short term target necessary for another leg higher. Summer season may bring more quiet trading but external shocks and/or significant news may cause a gappy move - more likely to the upside.

Technical Analysis - BTC
After periods of lower lows and retest of $6,000-a key support line and April lows, it seems like Bitcoin prices are making a turn for the better.. BTCUSD continues to be in a short term uptrend which is positive, but it is facing various resistance levels all the way to $7,000. Closing above $7,000 for a few days would be a strong confirmation of a new strong uptrend. Until then, we remain cautiously optimistic.

Daily Performances
Over the weekend, there were somewhat positive industry news coming out (see news above). BTC has been attempting to break above the key $6,800 level to confirm a break away from downward trends. In options, September $6,000 puts have large open interest so if we are able to break away the market should get lighter. Volatility in upside calls ($9,000, 10k strikes) are closely watched for bullish signals.

Stellar Lumens vs Other Cryptocurrencies
Lumens vs. Bitcoin: Jed McCaleb spoke at Distributed Markets in 2017 about the advantages, but more importantly, the disadvantages of Bitcoin. Listen to the talk here. Jed said, “Bitcoin is this awesome innovation. The first thing it does is converts a real world resource, electricity, into a digital asset. So it takes something from the real world and puts it into the digital realm. The second thing it does is provides immutable public record. It’s basically a database that everyone can see but no one change arbitrarily… That’s great, Bitcoin solves the double spin problem [ of proving possession and transmitting volume]… [However, to fix the problems of bitcoin] you might think well maybe we’ll just kind of keep adding [software] to Bitcoin until we get there, but that’s not really the way software works. You want to have the design from the beginning and solve these simple issues. Bitcoin was designed to be a new currency, it wasn’t really designed to be this unifying universal payment network. So that’s what Stellar does. It solves these three remaining issues.”
Lumens vs. Bitcoin #2: According to wired.com, "Bitcoin mining guzzles energy - and it's carbon footprint just keeps growing." Wired says "Today, each bitcoin transaction requires the same amount of energy used to power nine homes in the US for one day... The total energy use of this web of hardware is huge—an estimated 31 terawatt-hours per year. More than 150 individual countries in the world consume less energy annually. And that power-hungry network is currently increasing its energy use every day by about 450 gigawatt-hours, roughly the same amount of electricity the entire country of Haiti uses in a year." Because Stellar is based on a consensus algorithm rather than mining, it takes much less energy to run the Stellar network. The Poseidon Foundation decided to build their platform on Stellar rather than Ethereum or Bitcoin because of this (twitter source).
Lumens ICO tokens vs. Ethereum ICO tokens: According to Stellar.org, "traditionally, ICO tokens have been issued on the Ethereum network in the form of ERC20 tokens. ERC20 tokens are easy to issue and are infinitely customizable using Ethereum’s smart contracting language. However, recent events have highlighted and exacerbated some weaknesses of the network, including slow transaction processing times for the network during ICOs and increasingly expensive gas prices (by fiat standards) for transactions and smart contract execution. Moreover, many organizations require only basic tokens; they adopt the risk of Ethereum’s Turing complete programming language without taking advantage of many of its benefits."
"While Ethereum has the most expressive programming capabilities, we believe Stellar is the best choice for ICOs that do not require complex smart contracts. Stellar’s primary goal is to facilitate issuing and trading tokens, especially those tied to legal commitments by known organizations, such as claims on real-world assets or fiat currency."
Stellar vs. Ethereum #2: The median transaction time on Stellar is 5 seconds, compared to approximately 3.5 minutes on Ethereum (source). Stellar has a negligible transaction fee (.00001 XLM ~= $0.0000002) with no gas fee for computation, while depending on the complexity of the computation, the median cost for a transfer on the Ethereum network is $0.094. Security: While both Stellar and Ethereum run on a decentralized network, the Stellar network has fewer security pitfalls. Stellar uses atomic transactions comprised of simple, declarative operations while Ethereum uses turing complete programming capabilities which produces less auditable code and greater risk of exploitable vulnerabilities (source). Recently, a security flaw in the Ethereum network froze millions of dollars. According to Mobius ariticle written by David Gobaud, "On November 6, 2017, Github user deveps199 'accidentally' triggered a bug in Parity, a popular Ethereum mult-sig wallet, that froze more than $152 million in Ether across 151 addresses. The bug impacted several token sales including Polkadot, which has had ~$98 million out of its recent $145 million sale frozen."
"Mobius had none of its ongoing pre-sale Ether frozen because we do not trust Ethereum’s Smart Contract based multi-sig wallets given the vast Turing complete attack surface and did not use one. Security broadly is one of the main reasons the MOBI token that powers the DApp Store is a Stellar Protocol token and not an Ethereum token."
Lumens vs. Ripple: According to Wall Street Bitcoin Exchange, "Many investors like to compare the company [Stellar] to Ripple, and there are a lot of similarities, being that some of the founders worked on the Ripple team. In what can now be looked at as another blockchain development drama that plays out on chat boards and in interviews all across the globe. Stellar declared they fixed Ripple’s problems with their hard fork, however, Ripple has failed to admit to any of the flaws in its design that the Stellar team has pointed out." The article concludes by saying, "We Choose XLM Over XRP For 2018. That is why we are going with Stellar Lumens over Ripple in our portfolio for the rest of 2017 and 2018. After holding Ripple for a long time this year, it just never seems to make the big break like other names with bigger market caps like Bitcoin Cash, Dash, and Litecoin have. While we are holding on most all our larger market caps, we feel that Stellar Lumens will be one of the break out coins for 2018."
.
.
Conclusion
The stellar.org team is doing an amazing job making partnerships and pioneering the use of blockchain technology for various types of transactions. What we are seeing is a new technology that can actually be used to solve real-world problems. As a community, we need to continue supporting Stellar and we will quickly see it power transactions across the world. What are your thoughts about Stellar? What do you see in the future of Stellar?
