EMC2 on Poloniex delisting notice

EMC2Polo

Poloniex delisting announcement came as a complete shock to us. We were not notified ahead of time and given no warning that this might occur. In fact, we were in process with members of Poloniex’s development team resolving an issue with our wallets, which is still in progress. It certainly is not an ideal situation, however we are on other well-known exchanges and this will not affect us in the long run. We wish Poloniex the best, they have a lot of competition in the space and moves such as this aren’t helpful in maintaining trust and reputation in the blockchain community.

LIGHTNING GOES LIVE

EMC2LightningNetworkLN

Lightning network payments are now available on Einsteinium main net!

Einsteinium official Lightning nodes are deployed and active.

Client downloads and tutorial of how to set up an EMC2 Lightning Node are available at: https://www.emc2.foundation/lightning 

We will continuously work to upgrade existing lightning network and release new apps and tools in order to bring closer this kind of fast payments to developers and our users.

EMC2 Lightning Network GUI wallet, explorer, EMC2 LN apps and many more are still to come.

Lightning Network going live on Einsteinium

The lightning network is comprised of user-generated channels that send payments back and forth in a secure and trust-less fashion. Because the transactions are just between known parties and do not need to be broadcast to the whole network, they are almost instantaneous. And because there are no miners that need incentivizing, transaction fees are low or even non-existent. This will give EMC2 a significant advantage for those looking for the fastest transnational speeds and lowest fees in the crypto-space.
