Good observation. In short: The fact remains that the bridge to buy ETN is closed to those in the US who are new crypto until we list on a major licensed and regulated US Exchange.
I reside in the states. We have an increasing demand for crypto here, with about 10% of our adult population now involved in the space.
Several of the investor groups I am involved in - also here in the states - now have many individuals who are very interested in crypto but never were before. The majority of these people I am close with are High Net Worth. I mention this because they only do business on fully licensed and regulated US based exchanges.
I certainly have their attention when it comes to Electroneum; in fact, they share my enthusiasm for all of the success the Team are having in their business development, but my friends here also have no way to buy the coin.
Understand these are people who will only do business on a fully licensed and regulated exchange. Consequently, I see them go onto Coinbase, Gemini, and Binance US and buy the coins they are offering.
A listing on any of these exchanges will put our avg daily 24hr volume in the millions of dollars and is precisely the liquidity needed to onboard the interest I speak of; it is also needed if we aim to land in the Top 10. I am told by my close network here that isn’t it a bit of a paradox ETN is the first fully regulatory friendly KYC/AML compliant coin but is not listed in the US. It is, and it frustrates me. We are going into our 3rd year now and this must change - the sooner the better - and we (and especially the project) will all be far better for it.
