KaiOs should not be ignored!


#1

KaiOs is a Linux mobile os similar to android who powers cheap phones. KaiOs is number 2 mobile system in India after Android with about 50 million users worldwide and expected to get to over 100 million users at the end of this year.
KaiOS has partnered with Airfind, Facebook, Google, Twitter, Bullitt, Doro, HMD Global(Nokia), Micromax, NXP, Spreadtrum, Qualcomm, Jio, Sprint, AT&T, and T-Mobile.
According to Counterpoint Research, almost 23 million KaiOS-powered devices shipped in Q1 2018.

The team should make an app for the KaiOs similar to our mobile miner since KaiOs targets the poorest people of the world similar to what etn team is targeting.

Damm good idea…:+1::+1::+1::+1::+1:

That sounds really promising. The more people Electroneum can reach and support, the better. Good point.

This is interesting, could be useful in the future.

From a marketing point of view, KaiOs is a gold nugget.
The usual price for a KaiOs phone is around 15-20$( Jio Phone for example) and the most expensive one is around 40$.
These people made an effort to buy this phone.
So if I asked you to target the poorest people from a country who are also interested in technology you as a marketing company will have a hard time figuring how to do this.
For these people a small sum of money is important and with the expected launch of Gig.guru we need them and they need us.
Is a win-win situation for everybody.

I voted this topic. As other said, this could be the breakthrough electroneum is waiting for. Targeting directly that share of the market that needs etn the most: the unbaked with cheap phones ;D
