1/22 $TEL Review Intro
$TEL’s answer to crypto adoption is to make it easy and intuitive to send crypto payments over mobile phone networks. It’s a great idea and has huge potential if the team can execute.
2/22 $TEL Review Vision
The grand vision is to enable $TEL to be sent to any mob number in the world.
With more than 5 bil cell phone users in the world $TEL will use the telecoms network to send crypto payments making crypto accessible and usable especially for the unbanked👇
3/22 $TEL Review Use Case

$TEL hope to be used as a p2p transactional currency and for remittances. It will initially focus on the remittance market, but hope to grow to include those use cases from its WP👇
4/22 $TEL Review Issuance

#Telcoin will issue $TEL at a rate of 5% annually for a period of 10 years following the ICO to mobile network operators. Networks with more Telcoin exchange traffic will receive more, thus incentivising networks to encourage $TEL’s use.👇
5/22 $TEL Review Issuance

As mobile networks become commoditized, telcos will innovate to grow; $TEL can assist this.
This will allow $TEL to tap into the mobile network’ customer base, many of whom will already be KYC’d, side stepping the need for $TEL to go through all KYC
6/22 $TEL Review

To further mitigate fraud and illicit activities, telcos will be able to leverage GPS and call data.
Subscribers convert mobile money to $TEL. To mitigate hacking risk, $TEL will be stored in multi-sig wallets, preventing large $TEL movements without.
8/22 $TEL Review Tech

$TEL is built on @ethereum so inherits $ETH’s security but also scalability issues.
Through its API Telcoin will provide a number of integration options from initally simple connectivity to existing mobile money APIs to more complex integrations👇
9/22 $TEL Review Coin Metrics

Price: $0.000838 / 13 sats
Market Cap: 155
Volume: $139,909

Max Supply: 100,000,000,000

The most interesting metric to me = the supply/low price
10/22 $TEL Review Accomplishments

$TEL has been busy putting in place partnerships and getting its regulatory compliance sorted, including:

-Applied for Singapore money remitter license, applied for Philipines license
-Met with regulators in France, Canada👇
11/22 $TEL Review Accomplishments

-added to @changelly and @BRDHQ
-mystery partnership in Africa

While this is a good start, I expect to see more in the coming months, based on the roadmaps below.
12/22 $TEL Review Roadmap

$TEL has split its road map into 3; compliance, development and business development. This makes good sense since $TEL’s success will be driven by much more than purely dev work.
13/22 $TEL Review Compliance Roadmap

14/22 $TEL Review Development Roadmap

15/22 $TEL Review Partnerships/BD Roadmap

$TEL is announcing a new exchange by 30 Sept which should have a nice impact on price.
16/22 $TEL Review Roadmap

$TEL’s roadmap is ambitious and has a lot on schedule for the next 6 months or so. It looks like it might miss a few of its Q3 deadlines, so it will need to be sure to deliver/be more realistic in q4.
17/22 $TEL Review Competitors

$TEL faces completion from establish remittance companies like Western Union and other crypto start-ups, but no crypto is leveraging the global mobile phone network like $TEL.
18/22 $TEL Review Risks

-$ETH scalability/gas payments/solidity is difficult to make bullet proof
-Established competitors
-Business model is entirely dependent on Telecommunications networks adopting and integrating the technology into their own platforms👇
19/22 $TEL Team

Claude Eguienta -Co Founder/CEO- Distributed sys and crypto background. former CyberAgent. Advisor at TenX.
Paul Neuner-Co Founder/Chairman-12 years in the telecom space, founded Mobius, fraud management solution used by Veon, Ooredoo, Etisalat & more.👇
20/22 $TEL Review Conclusion

Telcoin offers a great solution for crypto adoption by leveraging the global mobile phone network. It has strong completion from established remittances players like Western Union and other crypto start-ups. 👇
21/22 $TEL Review Conclusion

$TEL’s plan is one of the more realistic, logical, and sensible in the space and you can imagine a world where we transact cryptos from phones.
The key to $TEL’s success will be delivering on its ambitious roadmap. Not delivering is a big risks.
