Electroneum, the British based blockchain, will be launching an in-app electricity top-up feature across four African countries to support digital payment projects for electricity in Nigeria, Senegal, Mali, and The Gambia.
What this means for Nigerians: The electricity payment platform will allow Electroneum app users to recharge their electricity meters directly from the app installed on their mobile phone by paying in Electroneum tokens.
What is Electroneum; Electroneum is a blockchain-based payment system created specifically for use on mobile hardware, like smartphones. It is believed by many to be the first Anti-Money-Laundering (AML) compliant and ‘you are your customer’ cryptocurrency. Electroneum’s crypto is mined from your smartphone with ease.
How can I buy Electroneum? This cryptocurrency can be bought from several cryptocurrency exchanges like Liquid, and Huobi. Each cryptocurrency exchange offers diverse ways of paying for Electroneum so be sure to check what payment options are offered to you.
However, while Electroneum has been expanding around the globe with its different payment projects, some of its users do not find these exciting, partly due to the depreciating returns on the cryptocurrency in recent months.
According to data obtained from Coinmarketcap, Electroneum ranks 64th as the most valuable cryptocurrency in the world, with a market capitalization of about $95 million dollars, trading up by 5%, with price at $0.0093 at the time this report was drafted.
Their collaboration with non-governmental organizations in these countries is a potential way of boosting the wider use of cryptocurrencies. Electroneum told Cointelegraph in a note that:
“By working with NGOs (Non-Governmental Organizations) on the ground in developing nations, we are achieving true adoption of a cryptocurrency. We are enabling people and allowing them to join the global digital economy for the very first time.”
The report also added the fact it would help minimize trade barriers and help freelancers earn a living.
“More importantly, we want to ensure that the vast number of highly skilled unbanked people of the world have an opportunity to join the global freelance revolution.”

Unknown entity moves $642 million worth of Bitcoin
The flagship crypto asset was trading at $49,126.38 on the FTX exchange, with a daily trading volume of $47.2 billion.
Wealthy investors have been moving large stacks of Bitcoin at record levels, as the flagship crypto looks set to break above $50,000 price levels once again.
This is triggered by the relatively strong bullish momentum in the BTC market.
A large entity transferred 13,070 BTC ($642M) in block 673,321 wallet.

Top crypto strategist, Van de Poppe, recently spoke on key price levels that could weigh on the direction of the flagship crypto asset in the near term.
“I’m assuming that once we hold this $49,000 zone that we’ve just discussed I think we have to break through $52,000 to have continuation towards $56,000. But as this entire region ($44,900-$52,000) has become a range-bound construction I’m not assuming that we will.”
This is coming on the back of institutional investors increasing their buying pressure amid recent price corrections prevailing at the world’s most volatile financial market.
Long-term supply decreases as HODLers take profits during bull markets – and increases in re-accumulation phases at cheaper prices.
Such data suggest that the Bitcoin market is transferring Bitcoin wealth from the impatient to the patient.
Data from Glassnode recently revealed that there was a 2% plunge in the number of flagship cryptos held on crypto exchanges between February 23 and March 2. This is equivalent to about 52,900 Bitcoins.
At press time, the flagship crypto asset was trading at $49,126.38 on the FTX exchange, with a daily trading volume of $47.2 billion. Bitcoin is up 0.89% for the day.
Though it’s often hard to anticipate market movements, such entities have historically shown that they often determine Bitcoin’s trend.
