Launched in 2017, Electroneum (ETN) cryptocurrency is designed with the aim of making cross-border payments cheap and simple. However, unlike most cryptocurrencies, and much like Ripple (XRP), Electroneum is a more centralized blockchain. Electroneum Pty Ltd, the company responsible for the development of the cryptocurrency, holds considerable sway over who can become a validator in the network, in order to protect the integrity of the blockchain.
Electroneum sets itself apart by being mobile-first — ETN, the native coin of the Electroneum blockchain, can be used for payments, can be traded, and mined using a smartphone. This is done through the Electroneum app which claims to enable payments in over 190 countries.
The interesting part about Electroneum is that they already claim to have an integrated use-case for cross-border payments through their network. Electroneum also powers AnyTask, a blockchain-based version of Fiverr or Freelancer.com that connects freelancers with digital task providers.
ETN price saw a major rally within the first few months of its launch. From around $0.04 in late November 2017, the price of ETN coin surged to around $0.20 by early January 2018, growing 500% in less than two months, according to our ETN live price chart. At the height of the price rally, Electroneum's (ETN) fully diluted valuation stood at around $4.2 billion.

Throughout 2019, ETN price in USD continued to fall, barring brief spikes, closing the year at a dismal $0.003. It continued its descent in 2020, stooping to an all-time low of $0.001 in March 2020. Despite the wider crypto market rally in late 2020, ETN could close the year at only around $0.005.
ETN coin registered another noteworthy uptrend starting February of 2021. The token rallied and breached the $0.04 resistance — after almost three years — in late March 2021. But by the end of June 2021, the price of ETN dropped to around $0.005. It climbed back again to cross $0.025 in September 2021, only to continue falling thereafter, reaching around $0.008 by the end of the year.
Amid the wider bear market in early 2022, ETN’s price nosedived below $0.005 in March, while its market cap slipped under $100 million.
The Electroneum network uses a unique Proof-of-Responsibility (PoR) consensus mechanism to secure its network. This requires the network’s node operators to prove that they use block rewards for philanthropic purposes.
A consensus mechanism is used by any blockchain network to ensure that no fraudulent transactions are recorded on the blockchain. Proof-of-Responsibility, does not, in reality, serve this purpose, since the selection of validators is controlled by Electroneum Pty Ltd.
The ETN network also has an added level of moderation, whereby a layer of blockchain that remains dormant during normal functioning is activated in case of a possible attack. The layer then identifies the source of the attack and removes the malicious validators.
The ETN ICO was highly successful and raised $40 million worth of BTC and ETH in September 2017. In July 2019, Electroneum became a ‘Moderated Blockchain,’ which is a type of permissioned blockchain. The network claimed that the transition made it immune to attacks, making it one of the most secure blockchains. The upgrade also reduced mining emissions to nearly zero, increasing the network’s sustainability. Post the upgrade, the network began onboarding transparent non-governmental organizations (NGOs) as miners.
