Overview of e-Money

  • E-money (electronic money) is money typically stored in a user’s account which can be accessed using a card or an electronic device, which include a mobile phone, and can be used to pay for goods and services.
  • e-Money, having just left the starting line, looks set to become a major player in the stablecoin world and has the potential to fundamentally change the way that we think about digital finance in the future.
  • E-money business was previously associated with issuers who fell outside the scope of regulation because the pre-paid cards could only be used for a limited purpose, ie in a single retail chain.
  • E-money is convenient because it doesn’t require the consumer to carry cash and can be used for making purchases and receiving payments any time, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
  • e-Money instead acts as a private prepaid account which doesn’t require a traditional bank account to transfer, spend or redeem the fiat currency balance in your wallet.
  • E-money institutions cannot begin operating until they have received approval – in the form of an e-money licence – from the appropriate financial regulatory authority.
  • E-money is an online or offline system of debits and credits, which is used for exchanging values, with another system or with itself, as a stand alone system.
  • e-Money’s currency-backed stablecoins will be inflated by 1% per year, and these additional stablecoins will be used to buy back and burn NGM tokens.
  • e-Money distinguishes itself with its novel token- an interest bearing stablecoin that can shift in value to accommodate economic pressures.
  • e-Money partners with Regen Network: A global marketplace & contracting platform for Earth’s ecosystem assets, services, and data.
  • Blockchain

    As an innovative and unique stablecoin blockchain protocol, e-Money aims to create a level playing field, providing equal access to transparent financial services, on a global scale, while greatly reducing cost, something MANTRA DAO wholeheartedly supports!As MANTRA DAO ventures into 2021, we are committed to working with some of the other best projects that the crypto space has to offer.


    In fact, e-Money’s team has already begun working with regulatory agencies in the EU to determine their status and plan their road ahead.Regulatory concerns are also dealt with.They have legal counsels and advisors who are directly working on EU financial regulations.


    Currently, there are already over 40 validators working to maintain the security of the platform.The main task of validators is to confirm the authenticity of blockchain transactions involving e-Money, as well as to ensure the integrity and health of the whole network.


    A decentralized complex peer system validates and processes crypto transactions.But that’s where the similarities end.Cryptocurrencies, as a relatively new technology, are not yet widely regulated.E-money institutions must comply with anti-money laundering, anti-fraud and know-your-customer regulations or face legal consequences.In “classic” electronic money transactions you have a financial institution acting as an intermediary supervising it.In opposition to electronic money, cryptocurrencies are not governed by a centralized authority.


    “We are extremely excited to be working together with the MANTRA DAO team.The partnership will help us to meet our goal of improving accessibility in the blockchain space while also connecting e-Money’s asset-backed tokens with the ever-expanding DeFi ecosystem.We are thrilled to have the great team at MANTRA DAO supporting e-Money as partners, investors, and validators, and we look forward to innovating together to grow and improve the cryptosphere.” Martin Dyring-Andersen, e-Money, CEO and Founder


    In any case, however, e-money transactions, hardware-based as well as software-based, don’t have to involve banks to conduct the payment, as long as it’s a certified e-money institution conducting the service in question.

    Is Libra e-money?

    Is Libra e-money or rather a virtual currency? Since Libra is based on blockchain technology, it would stand to reason that Libra is a cryptocurrency.However, the underlying technology is not relevant for the regulatory classification.From a European point of view, there are two possible categories for Libra: e-money (as defined in EMD2) or virtual currency (as defined in AMLD5).Since the legislator has designed the definition of a virtual currency as a catch-all provision and can therefore be applied very widely, it can be assumed that if Libra does not fulfil the e-money criteria, it will be classed as a virtual currency.For this reason, we must first examine the question as to whether Libra would fulfil the criteria for e-money on the basis of the information available in the white paper.So is Libra e-money – yes or no?
