The 2020 Fomosapien club vol 3

Ahh i see what you mean. That’s a good question, I’m reasonably sure there is no bridge between those services but never specifically asked. Rich has mentioned in videos the AnyTask purchases are made from the open market so i don’t think there is any link to top-ups.

Even if it was however, that wouldn’t make any difference as now there are no rewards, top-up ETN would have been purchased from the Open Market anyway. So either way its originates with FIAT not block rewards or premine ETN.

Good question though, especially if the same middle man was used for both services.

Definitely and yeah that’s what I understand aswell, and also I’m sure that the app was supposedly going to get a TRUE instant payment within app-app transfer, still occuring on the blockchain somehow.
And no, i’m not talking notifications. Truly instant trasnactions within wallet.
But it was a long while ago I read or heard those lines, pretty sure it was on the roadmap even a while back but I can’t find it anymore.

Does anyone else remember hearing truly instant transactions within the app? I’m almost a 100% sure it was supposedly to come this year.
But I could have misinterpreted the wordings also.

Richard stated in his latest interview that they just submitted the FCA application 2 weeks ago, and should get approved by Jan. 1st. The FCA is with the UK, not the US. But it will give ETN the “backing” she needs to expand into the US market and so forth.

The work the team are doing in the US does not require the FCA I believe tete.

Electroneum is not getting “regulated” in the US, it’s just getting the necessary legal acknowledgement to make its standing clear (in terms of security/legality of the ICO etc). This allows the team to push ETN in the US market (this would obviously include US exchanges, but also other things as well).

The team could of course push forward without this, but that’s not how Electroneum work and not something you do when you are in the middle of being assessed for FCA compliance in the UK as you mentioned.

More red tape, but that’s just whats required when working in the fin-tech sector and ensuring you meet all the necessary regulations and requirements. A price we pay for attempting to break into mainstream markets. A pain, but will be worth it moving forward in an industry rife with questionable practices. Time spent now will pay it forward tenfold down the line.

Instant payment can’t happen on any distributed system with any level of decentralisation. Consensus takes time.

However, with the changes the team are making it can be close.

The instant payment API can hold the funds (as it does now) and then a 1 block confirmation (on the new consensus model) would allow the funds to be used very shortly after in the receiving account. (i.e. seconds or minutes). That’s not instant, but certainly performant/close enough.

The team are dedicating a lot of time and resource to taking the performance of the mobile wallet, instant payment and blockchain to a level where it both users and businesses will be happy. As with any software development, future cycles always focus more on performance…and there is plenty of scope for improvement.

Looking forward to everything that’s being worked on. When it comes to UX, often the “little things” make all the difference.

Aah yes exactly that’s what I was reffering to, It was so long ago I can’t remember exactly how it was phrased.
So we can confirm that this is still undergoing work?
Thanks, I have been trying to back track this information for quite a while now and haven’t been able to find it.
This is probably one of my most hyped updates for me personally, it really doesn’t change anything honestly, but it is a very desired update from my perspective:D

I was thinking more of where the ETN goes to compared with where it comes from ie. AnyTask ETN is fine because it goes to individual users, but top-ups ETN can still end up being dumped in big chunks if the neat and tidy system that some of us imagined isn’t actually taking place ie. not ETN>Top Up>3rd Party>AnyTask Seller>Top Up but actually two systems 1. ETN>Top Up>Dump and 2. ETN>AnyTask Seller>Possible further use or dump.

I understand there are probably some commercial arrangements that we don’t know about and that’s fine, I just like to know how the ecosystem works.

Someone here, sorry I forget who, made a very nice and complicated diagram showing the flow of ETN around the ecosystem a while ago, but it perhaps needs to be revised!

Yeah, not sure. Might be a good question for the next AMA with Richard :+1:

Ultimately it no longer matters. Without rewards any more, top-ups are paid for from ETN purchased on the open market. So even if it does overlap (which i don’t believe it does), it still gets purchased from the open market.

Hi @Zero7 and welcome back to the forum.

Are you a TA person? If you are then perhaps you could post your TA in the Technical Analysis section - or is this more of a gut feeling you have?

A new trading competition on BIKI for a BTC pairing.

Good to have another pairing, but these competitions seem to always have a detrimental affect on price :thinking:

I know a few others won’t be happy.

It states that wash and self trading will not count, but we’ve all seen these before, right?

https://www.biki.com/en_US/noticeInfo/3064

Edit: Also just noticed that you cannot get a share of any rewards if you have previously deposited ETN on BIKI before, or at least that is how I am interpreting it.
