This [‘The Identify Estcoin’] would be a basic but useful use case for estcoin. And I can speak from personal experience.
In September 2016, the Estonian Police and Border Guard Board informed me that I have been granted e-Residency. I was also informed that I would be notified upon my document/s’s arrival to the place of issue marked on the application form (there being no option for pickup in Manila, I chose the Estonian Embassy in Tokyo, the “place of issue”).
Having received no notification up to the end of 2016, I sent follow up emails to Politsei-ja Piirivalveamet and e-Residency in the first quarter of 2017.
I received a response that “[u]nfortunately [the e-Residency] team can not trace the path of delivery of the documents to the issue place. Please contact the Estonian Embassy in Tokyo. Their contacts can be found here: x x x,” sending me to the contact webpage of the embassy.
After an exchange of emails with Enterprise Estonia and the follow-ups made by its customer support to the Estonian Embassy in Tokyo, I was told that notifications, in fact, were sent to me.
In July 2017, the consul at the embassy was finally able to confirm by email that my e-residency card was in Tokyo as requested and available for pickup.
I believe estcoin, in this use case, would make things easier for future (and fellow) e-residents. After all, having this high-tech program succumb to junk mail or some other reason why Enterprise Estonia “[would not be able to] trace the path of delivery of the documents to the issue place” could feel a bit low. . . -tech.
(Doesn’t distract from the fact that I am amazed of e-Estonia as an idea and the good things it represents.)
