Like everyone else in our community, I was slightly taken aback by the inability to log into the Electroneum website and the Electroneum app today. I can’t help but wonder how this type of situation would cripple future markets that rely on Electroneum as their primary currency. As mass adoption becomes closer to reality, the Electroneum network needs to be air tight so that any type of server maintenance does not cause wallet downtime.
I come from a background of building systems engineering. When designing building systems for clients who’s business is highly critical, the systems are designed in a redundant nature so that the facility is always running smoothly with zero possibility of system downtime. I would imagine that VISA’s network is set up in a similar fashion. My point is, whatever is the cause of the wallet downtime needs to be addressed.
I’m a major Electroneum supporter. This post is not meant to be taken as FUD. I’m posting this as a concerned ETN investor that wants nothing but future success for Electroneum. Here’s hoping that any future server issues or upgrades can be done while not impacting the ability to use the online wallet. That said, I realize that Electroneum is working hard to improve their infrastructure so I’m confident this will be a small lesson learned for future improvements.
