There is a lot of positive news surrounding Electroneum lately, with the cumulative gains only seeming to be the beginning of good things. Perhaps this coming November is what a majority of the ETN community are waiting for after the mass adoption of the cryptocurrency. That follows recent developments of open-source ETN instant payment software that developers can now use to integrate alongside other payments methods.
The software, ETNCommerce is the product of Joomlapro founder, Claes Norin. CNorin, as he is known in other circles, developed the ETNCommerce software to enable e-commerce businesses interested in using Electroneum to integrate a mobile-based instant payment API for the cryptocurrency. Businesses would download the software, based on their latest Joomla CMS and VirtueMart platforms, and start accepting Electroneum in the form of digital currency, ETN.
In his reaction to why he picked Electroneum, the Joomlapro founder, said:
“I've been a fan of Electroneum since it launched last year, as I quickly realized that it could move out of the traditional sphere occupied by cryptocurrencies and become a valid means of digital payment. When I saw there were plans for an ETN Instant Payment system, I knew we could build a plug-in for Joomla and VirtueMart, and after we developed them, I realized we could go one step further, so we designed this package.”
How It Works
As aforementioned, the Electroneum payment system will work on the latest Joomla CMS and Virtuemart platforms. The package is free (open-source) and comes with a pre-configured and pre-installed instant payment method for the cryptocurrency. According to Norin, the extensions come with flexibility and easy handling for the average user to work with it successfully.
If you are on Joomla CMS, you will be fortunate to get the Electroneum based plugins for free as downloads on Joomla's official website. VirtueMart plug-in users will also get access to downloaded and pre-installed ETNCommerce system to install alongside their other forms of digital payments. An added functionality is that ETNCommerce can be set up according to the user's “recipe” and one can choose his extensions and templates.
Who Stands To Benefit
The introduction of ETNCommerce could foresee a smooth integration of Electroneum. With already a growing interest in the ETN community, there could be widespread adoption within a brief period. Merchants, especially, could push the crypto's prices higher if they successful start accepting ETN from their online customers. Overall, such progress could also signal developers to move towards mass adoption of more cryptocurrency models.
The Go Ahead
Going by the sentiments from the ETN team there seems to be a bright future for the cryptocurrency. Although much of it is still in its infancy stage, ETNCommerce is already generating a lot of buzzes with its developments and updates. Fortunately, the development team at Joomlapro has made things easier by providing several tutorials on their YouTube channel on the basics of ETNCommerce. So, you can get started by checking out the ETNCommerce website and learn more on the technicalities through their videos.
