Mobile-based crypto app Electroneum reports over 1,760 app downloads and 1,200 new registered accounts a day

January 18, 2021

Mobile-phone-based crypto app startup Electroneum has reported an increase in weekly sign-ups and app downloads. The UK-based startup so far has 4.12 million registered users after a week that saw an average of just over 1,200 new sign-ups per day, reported Ellen MacPherson, the project's Data Analyst Manager.

Electroneum recorded over 10,575 app downloads in one week ending on 13 January. 'That comes to an average of 1,763 app downloads per day. The total number of app downloads is now 2,772,535,' MacPherson said.

The startup's team says it will continue to expand awareness of the Electroneum project amongst the crypto space, including regular coverage through influencers, keynote speeches at key crypto events, and extensive PR coverage.

'We are also planning a new ambassadorial program that'll help foster daily conversations around the project and help attract new members from the wider crypto space,' said Electroneum CEO Richard Ells.

Electroneum also recently expanded to four more African countries - Sierra Leone, Togo, Benin, and Ivory Coast. Its in-app electricity top-ups were already live in Nigeria, Mali, Gambia, Senegal, and Guinea-Bissau. And with nearly 4.1 million registered users at that time, the blockchain startup is to date the only one providing electricity top-ups with crypto.

Late last year, the project became the first to enable mobile airtime and data top-ups with the Electroneum app. And on 25 November 2020, Electroneum became the largest crypto startup to offer mobile airtime top-ups with coverage across 163 countries.

'We are so incredibly proud of our wonderful community, and we thank you for your continued support ' said Mr. Ells.

'This is truly an exciting time to be part of such a nascent industry. We are still at the very start, and we have many years of exciting times ahead,' he concluded.
