A South Korean mobile carrier, Union Mobile launches a blockchain project, named ELYNET.

The announcement was made on September 11th. The company will not charge its users for roaming and contracts for data use.

ELYNET professes to be the first blockchain telecom company.

“Most of the members of our project team have built their careers at existing mobile carriers, including LG U+, and we have received support from talented people who have worked at KPMG and Samsung for the design of the token economy.

This will help us to realize our business. When users connect to the communications network through ELYNET’s own operating system, they can purchase data through ELyX, a token used in ELYNET’s ecosystem, and freely enjoy mobile data communication anywhere in the world without roaming fees or contracts”.
