Ok I’m all about ETN…I thought I had a good grasp of the project. It seems I had to open my mind a little more.
Some exciting news in this thanks.
20 countries live by the end of this year. Oh my !
I wonder if they will be essentially in Africa or on different continents too.
if your after user numbers, you would be going after nigeria 160 million people, Ethiopia 80 million, Brazil 200 million, indonesia, 250 million, bangladesh 150 million, Philipines 100 million, Vietnam 100 million… of course it depends on how many smartphones a country has and how open their government is to crypto… etc etc.

Almost like Richard, Chris and Nick knew something…
Yep, great video - will be interesting to see what actually becomes of that “20”
Are we expecting big news this month for ETN? Richard indicated an updated fork coming in 2 weeks from the interview, that would be the 26th of June for the release if I am literally counting each day. Assuming he was just giving a ball park date, that would mean it should be by the end of the month. Also, do we get more updates than just that? Perhaps estimates of when each market is estimated to come online if there are no issues. I would like more specifics to their goals, and a detailed breakdown of the success in South Africa. This has to be one of the most undervalued Crypocurrencies in the market. ETN will surprise everyone who is not in the know.
Welcome and a lot of us truly believe that,
