MOBILE MINING BETA UPDATE
We are happy to say the mobile mining beta has started.
Over the course of this week we completed some internal (and commercial partners) testing which was very successful. We have now sent it out to the first 100 applicants for the beta program.
We would be grateful if everyone could please check their email to see if you are one of the lucky first group of testers.
Once we have completed this round of testing we plan to roll it out to more people to test the scalability of the miner, allowing many more applicants to gain access to the mobile miner. At this stage we will also be adding some additional features.
This is a great step forward as the mobile miner gives access to a huge new market, the unbanked. We will be able to give people in some developing countries access to earn digital currency for free, in places where they don’t even have a bank account.
As well as accessing the unbanked, this will add to the agreements we have in place where Electroneum holders and miners can offset the cost of their phone bill with ETN.
This is another step on our goal to mass adoption.
