Update December 11th

EnergyCoin Dashboard App

The App is looking good in Closed Beta stage. We are in process of integration with Ring-Ring right now; after a successful integration with Ring-Ring it will be ready to go live.

A purpose of the EnergyCoin Dashboard in this phase is to show how friendly you are to the environment. Our goal is to motivate people to behave green, and we want to invite as many of you to do so as well. Our green behaviour partners would feed us with your environment-friendly actions that we would display in our App. Amount o

f Bicycle Bits you earn from Ring-Ring would be expressed in ENRG, which represents your green behaviour, and your CO2 savings would be stored as carbon credits on the blockchain.

Dashboard Page of the application

Upon a successful registration, login and doing some Ring-Ring activities your Dashboard Page could look like this.

On the dashboard you can see CO2 prevention by riding a bike for every day since you registered. You can follow your green behaviour in ENRG and/or Bicycle Bits, and value of ENRG in Euro.

App will be free to use!

Update December 4st

EnergyCoin Foundation joins research project University Utrecht: store peer-to-peer energy transactions on the EnergyCoin blockchain

On 1st of December the B-DER project has started. EnergyCoin Foundation is a partner in the research project together with Utrecht University and Resourcefully. We are going to build a framework for smart flexible energy infrastructure: a Blockchain-based platform for peer-to-peer energy transactions between Distributed Energy Resources.

The energy production landscape is being reshaped by distributed energy resources (DER), such as solar panels, battery energy storage, electric vehicles and charging stations. The rapid deployment of these distributed energy resources calls for management schemes of these resources to guarantee grid reliability in the future. Proposed control schemes, such as demand response, assume that the operation of DER will be centrally managed by an aggregator or a cooperative utility. However, these centralized control schemes suffer from scalability issues when the number of DER increase significantly. In addition, it is unclear how these management systems work in the face of incentive issues or regulatory shortcomings.

Goal

This project will develop a platform to enable peer-to-peer energy transactions between DER, allowing households, with energy generation capabilities, to trade energy with each other. Besides trade can also involve other DER in the neighbourhood, such as EV charging stations, in a distributed, optimal, verifiable and secure fashion. To achieve this mission, the project partners will develop an optimization algorithm that allows households to minimize their electricity cost and maximize benefits from their PV system while at the same time ensuring a profitable charging price for EV charging stations owners.

To enable secure and verifiable energy transactions between entities, we will implement the optimization algorithm on a blockchain architecture. The project assesses the technical and economic potential of the developed platform using actual data of households’ demand and PV generation profiles, as well as EV charging stations demand in a residential neighborhood in Amsterdam. The assessment will be analyzed for different penetration levels of DER currently and in the future and under different electricity pricing and support schemes.

The EnergyCoin Foundation will share their experience on blockchain technique, cryptocurrencies, local climate policy and climate communication.

Update November 22nd

EnergyCoin joins forces with the biggest climate campaign in the Netherlands

With 240.000 people who join the WarmSweaterDay annually, it is the most notable climate campaign in the Netherlands (the “Warmetruiendag” in Dutch). Over the past 12 years, this climate action day grew into a well-known phenomenon in the Netherlands. Schools, companies, the Dutch railway, municipalities, universities, museums are making a climate statement on that day at www.warmetruiendag.nl. At Twitter #warmetruiendag is trending topic, Dutch celebrities join this action, it’s on national TV, newspapers write about it, and almost every year the weather reporters mention the campaign at the 8 o’clock countrywide news.

EnergyCoin team is very proud to join forces with the WarmSweaterDay and announce it today (22nd November 2018)

WarmSweaterDay pilot project

We are starting a pilot including one hundred WarmSweaterDay participants with a smart gas meter to store their avoided gas usage on the EnergyCoin blockchain.

Participants set a target how much they want to save on gas in one month and when they achieve that goal, they are rewarded in an amount of warm sweater day tokens corresponding to how much gas they did not use. The avoided gas usage is converted into saved emissions of greenhouse gases. In the conversion a warm sweater token is created and information is stored on the Blockchain.

Initiation of the EnergyCoin ecosystem

The WarmSweaterDay pilot, together with the cycling pilot with Ring-Ring, is an initiation of the EnergyCoin ecosystem.

WarmSweaterDay token name

We are looking for a name for the WarmSweaterDay token. Should they called Pullis, Sweaterbits: let us know your ideas! Let us now at Twitter (@EnergyCoinFdn or @EnergyCoin) or Instagram (@Energycoinfoundation) and please use #name #warmetruiendag #token.

More about the WarmSweaterDay

The Warmetruiendag (the WarmSweaterDay) is organized by the Dutch Climate Alliance, Klimaatverbond an association of 180 Dutch local governments. Since 2007 this campaign celebrates the birthday of the Kyoto climate protocol annually. The Warmetruiendag reminds people that the greenest energy is the energy you don’t use.

Together we can save 70% energy worldwide, with all the knowledge and techniques that are already available. The massive potential of saving energy as part of the solution of the climate problem is in the spotlights every edition.

And we need to show each other what we do to reduce the emission of greenhouse gasses to tackle the prisoner’s dilemma. The biggest threat to a living planet is feeling helpless.

The campaign encourages people to turn down the temperature by one degree and instead to keep warm by wearing an extra warm sweater. The result of this seemingly simple act is an energy savings of six percent per degree. The warm sweater is a symbol for all the actions people can easily (and comfortably) do to save energy.

The WarmSweaterDay campaign challenges individuals, schools, government organisations, companies and universities to turn down their heat and to communicate what they do the rest of the year to save energy.

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) stated a few weeks ago that we have around 12 years to decarbonize our society and avoid a dangerous climate breakdown. Rising public interest in climate change and biodiversity could rapidly push policy and markets towards transformative change when amplified. Our goal is to raise funds to reward people who are joining measurable climate actions, avoiding emissions of greenhouse gasses and restore nature. Also, this makes their (individual) actions more visible.

Update 6 | EnergyCoin 13th November 2018

Hello everyone and welcome to the 6th official update from the EnergyCoin foundation.

Crex24

It has been 10 days since EnergyCoin was listed on crex24, and thus far we are satisfied with crex24 services and support, providing 24/7 working platform with clear interface that is simplified enough for the beginners, yet with advanced tools that can be used by the experienced traders. Their fees are pretty fair as well, maker rebate is 0.01% and taker fee is 0.10%. Big thanks to crex24, keep trading guys!

P.S. EnergyCoin is still on CoinMarketCap, it was marked as inactive cryptocurrency since delisting from Bittrex; If we continue with current ENRG volumes on Crex24 and add one more exchange we expect to be back to CoinMarketCap as an active cryptocurrency.

NovaExchange

ENRG is listed on NovaExchange, it can be deposited and traded there if you have an account already. Soon enough, as they’ve said, we will know when are they going to re-open NovaExchange and everyone is going to able to register again. “In 10–12 days we will announce the date for re-opening.” was part of their article from 8th November. So we expect their announcement about re-opening not later than 20th November. We will keep you guys updated!

In upcoming updates you will get more information about new partnerships, sponsorships and app. Stay tuned!

=========================================================================================

Update #5 | November 2nd 2018

ENRG has been listed on Crex24

We are very happy to announce that we are officially listed. Today we have received a message from the Crex24 team that they have opened ENRG-BTC market. From now on you can make ENRG deposits to your Crex24 account and trade ENRG.

One more exchange

Now that we are listed on a new exchange, our goal is to get listed on one more. We are still considering what exchange would be the best option for our project. When we narrow the list of options, we will let you know where else ENRG might be tradeable.

Stay tuned!

Win64 QT wallet

Our devs have finished the QT wallet win64 version, and we are going to test it for a some time now, to see if there are any bugs to fix.

Update #4 | Oktober 31th 2018

How to sync QT wallet in few hours

We’ve created a guide how you can manually sync the QT wallet in a few hours with really easy steps, because autosync takes from a few hours up to a few days . We’ve posted a guide created by our Devs on the EnergyCoin Foundation official site.

QT wallet win64 version

Since we are getting listed on a new exchange, we are creating a new and upgraded version of the QT wallet. Difference between Win32 and Win64 is size of pointers. In Win64, the size of the pointers is 64 bits; and in Win32, it is 32 bits.

How to stake ENRG?

A little reminder what kind of coin is ENRG. Everyone can mine their own EnergyCoin as long as they are holders of some. EnergyCoin is a Proof of Stake (PoS) type of coin. This means that your mining power depends on how much ENRG you hold.

Note: There are few other ways of mining, and most popular is Proof of Work (PoW) which means that your mining depends on that how strong is your CPU/GPU and it doesn’t matter how many of the assets you hold.

Update #2 | 25th October 2018

Listing on a new exchange

We were working hard to list EnergyCoin on a new exchange so ENRG is tradeable and we have some news.

  • crex24.com has accepted our application to list ENRG today,
  • We are expecting to be up and running on crex24.com in 5 to 12 days,
  • We are in process of listing ENRG to one more exchange.

We will come back to you with more updates soon; stay tuned!

Why Crex24?

Crex24 is a smaller exchange than Bittrex, but it works just as fine for us in this situation. We were looking for a quick and financial acceptable solution. So far we had a good communication with the Crex24 team, and we expect that to continue for the benefit of EnergyCoin holders.

Update #1 | 23 October 2018

Hello everyone and welcome to the first official update from The EnergyCoin Foundation.

The EnergyCoin (ENRG) blockchain labels the value of sustainable development. Within ENRG ecosystem these values can be seamlessly exchanged to speed up the transition to a green, climate neutral society. People should be empowered to authenticate and transact the value of local climate sustainable action immediately and without costly intermediaries.

Bittrex ENRG-BTC market is closing

As you may already know, Bittrex has announced that ENRG-BTC market would be removed on 26-Oct-2018 (at the end of this week). One of the main reasons for delisting ENRG-BTC market is a low trading volume. By the Bittrex Market Removal Policy users has 14 days to withdraw any delisted tokens, but in certain instances the withdrawal period may be shortened. Users should withdraw any ENRG before the Bittrex posted withdrawal deadline. We will update you in regards to the official Bittrex ENRG withdrawal deadline.

ENRG going to new exchanges

Bittrex has been the only exchange where ENRG was traded. To avoid ending up this situation ever again, we are in process of listing ENRG on minimum two new exchanges, which are less demanding than Bittrex at this moment. We are trying our best to ensure that ENRG could be traded on at least on one exchange not later than the end of this week, so ENRG trading activities are not interrupted. We will keep you updated about the new ENRG listings on a daily base.

A long waited Green Blockchain App is being released soon

Since August this year the EnergyCoin has a fully dedicated development team that is working on several projects at the moment with the most important one being the EnergyCoin dashboard — an instrument were people can exchange the value of their local climate actions. The EnergyCoin Foundation want to empower people to authenticate and transact the value of local sustainable actions immediately and without costly intermediaries. More about the general idea about the EnergyCoin ecosystem can be found here: https://www.energycoinfoundation.org/en/. We expect the first beta release to happen in mid-November this year. At the moment we are designing a solution on how to connect with the Ring-ring app that incentivizes people on their bicycle mileage. The idea is to increase bicycle use over fossil-fuel-burning vehicles and reward clean and green pedal power. Cyclists earn the value of the avoided (carbon) emissions, and the air in cities becomes cleaner.

What to do with ENRG funds on Bittrex

You should migrate off ENRG funds of Bittrex by sending coins to any of the following wallets:

  • EnergyCoin Core Client (download from here),
  • EC Lite web wallet
  • New ENRG exchanges to be announced (note: we do not advise keeping coins on exchanges for extended periods of time)

EC Lite

EC Lite is an EnergyCoin web wallet hosted at energyexchange.eu

It is simple to use by using 12 word passphrase that you get during registration. To make it even more user friendly, a secret URL and password could be used.

In summary

We have started with regular ECF official reports, this one being the first one. We are in process of listing ENRG on minimum two new exchanges to ensure that ENRG trading activities are not interrupted due to Bittrex closing ENRG-BTC market. EnergyCoin development team is on the roll and many exciting new features are planned to be shipped starting mid-November this year.
Stay tuned!
