Looking for two municipalities who want to develop a community dashboard with us

Posted by Anne-Marie Pronk in News | 0 comments

24.06.19

As you may know, our dashboard is able to track and show the climate gains of individuals based on their positive climate actions. We would like to upgrade this dashboard into a community dashboard so that the impact of collectives are visible. How many emissions of CO2  climate active citizens avoided together. That is why we have invited municipalities and energy cooperatives to develop a Community Dashboard together with us. Municipalities or renewable energy cooperatives by citizens can use this tool as an instrument for their climate projects or initiatives and make a start with a local climate economy. Let’s build a new value system together!

Think of it as a bank where residents can see the value of their joint climate actions. And together they will have the option to decide how this value is used for further sustainability.

What do we need? We need two municipalities who are prepared to join our pilot. What do we offer? For the municipalities and cooperatives, this can become a monitoring tool with monthly overviews of the impact achieved. Different tokens based on the avoided CO2 emissions that can be used for your local climate economy. Fast and accurate substantiation for steering towards climate objectives.

Curious about the possibilities? See our newsletter (Dutch). Feel free to message us!

EnergyCoin Dashboard (ECD) Phase 2

Posted by Anne-Marie Pronk in News | 0 comments

11.03.19

ECD is finally on the Blockchain and long expected converting climate savings into a value is now possible; with ECD phase 2 tested and in production you can start cycling, and via Ring-Ring track your mileage, routes and earn EnergyCoin through the ECD! If you don’t have an account, don’t wait any longer to create one! Download Ring-Ring on your iPhone or Android smartphone and connect with ECD! Make sure to take a look at the article where you can see how to create an account on the ECD and join the pilot.
*NOTE: Your email address has to be the same as your login email address for Ring-Ring!

The dashboard displays accumulated ENRG value, accumulated Bicycle Bits (BB) value and your green behavior (prevented CO2 emission) as a graph for each day you were active. Here is how the Dashboard looks like:

Generate EnergyCoin address!

To start getting rewards, you must generate your own EnergyCoin address. You can create an account on one of the following exchanges: Crex24, Nova Exchange or Bitibu. If you have any issues generating your address or receiving funds, make sure to join our Telegram channel and ask any question; you’ll get a response ASAP.

New partnership for ECD integrating soon

As you already may know, we have a partnership with WarmSweaterDay, the biggest Climate Action in the Netherlands that had a huge success on the 15th of February this year with over 200k participants! Their partner Shifft uses smart gas meter technology which they are going to integrate with ECD in order to show the difference in energy usage between March 2018 and March 2019 on our dashboard. Based on that, participants on the WarmSweaterday pilot project will get WSD’s virtual token that will be exchangeable for ENRG on ECD, just like Bicycle Bits.

EnergyCoin Dashboard (ECD) phase two features

In the current version of the ECD you could see your green behaviour, originated on Ring-Ring, represented in CO2 emission savings and ENRG. In the next phase of the ECD you are going to be able to receive the collected ENRG on your ENRG address, which you enter on your ECD profile. There will be only one address at the time, which can be changed at any point. There will be a link to the EnergyCoin Explorer, as well.

We will enable transactions and transactions status; our partners will start rewarding their users via the EnergyCoin dashboard for green behaviour in this phase! This phase will be ready in February. Now in phase two we are greeting another partners joining the EnergyCoin Dashboard too.

ECD partners

Our current partner, that is already integrated with the ECD is Ring-Ring. They will be able to start rewarding their users as soon as phase two is live. Warmsweaterday (and their technical partner Shifft) will be joining in the ECD phase two, start rewarding their users for saving energy by lowering heat power in their houses and putting on a sweater. Warmsweaterday is the biggest climate action in Netherlands (more than 173.000 participants already) , and Shifft is a company that offers an online platform for managing smart energy-use through smart meters, social interaction and gamification.

Marketplaces for redeeming ENRG

There are 5 places where rewards that you would receive through the ECD could be sent: If you want to HODL your ENRG rewards, you can use desktop wallet or web wallet. Now, if you are trading type of person, there are three exchanges where you can deposit and trade ENRG: Crex24Nova Exchange, and Bitibu which is the newest exchange where ENRG can be deposited and traded. It’s more than easy to create an account on every of these platforms, so make sure to have one per platform and chose the best fit for you; transactions in the ECD are going to be automatic so ENRG would be sent to the address that you put as yours on your profile. Since ENRG is an active coin, you can see all the information about it: prices, charts, etc on CoinMarketCap.

Hurry up; make an account on ECD via Ring-Ring and start cycling! Number of accounts in this pilot is limited to a hundred of users, so be one of them.

New exchange: Bitibu

Posted by Anne-Marie Pronk in News | 0 comments

26.01.19

As our team planned that there will be another exchange where EnergyCoin is going to be listed, there is one from today! Bitibu is new marketplace where ENRG can be deposited and traded; they opened two new market pairs: BTC — ENRG and BTB — ENRG. Make sure to create an account here, deposit your funds and start trading!

Marketplaces for EnergyCoin

Let’s not forget with new marketplace all the active marketplaces where ENRG can be traded, which are Crex24 and Nova Exchange. Now is ENRG listed on three exchanges, and with that we secured liquidity of the coin and it won’t be untradable ever again. We expect soon to be back on CoinMarketCap as an active coin since there are two active BTC — ENRG markets and third is being added now.

EnergyCoin Wallets

As you may know, there are both web and desktop wallets for EnergyCoin. If you want to HODL your ENRG funds rather than trading it, then you should use one of our wallets. You can get to ENRG web wallet by clicking here, download desktop wallet for windows or linux by clicking here and for iOS here.

Cyclists can earn carbon credits

Posted by Anne-Marie Pronk in News | 0 comments

17.01.19

EnergyCoin Foundation, Ring-Ring and Bloxico launch a marketplace to capture and exchange value of local climate action. Cyclists can now earn the virtual token Bicycle Bits for every hundred kilometers they cycle. The bicycle kilometers are registered via an app and are stored on a EnergyCoin Dashboard. A Bicycle Bit is a certified emission reduction credit for avoiding greenhouse gas emissions and fine particles by traveling by bicycle.

The EnergyCoin Foundation and the technical development team Bloxico work together with Ring-Ring, the service that has encouraged the use of the bicycle for more than five years at dozens of companies and organizations and accurately records the bicycle kilometers that have been made. With one bicycle kilometer you avoid the emission of an average of 150 grams of CO2, this avoided CO2 emission is now being rewarded!

We start a pilot with hundred participants. Be quick. Register via Ring-Ring app, which can be downloaded on both Android and iOS. From this app you can register your bike kilometers and convert from today to Bicycle Bits. You get 1 Bicycle Bit per 100 bicycle kilometers, and this will be exchangeable in the second phase of this pilot — through the EnergyCoin Dashboard for 1 EnergyCoin (ENRG). Cyclists earn a reward for their choice of mobility. In urban areas, the replacement for one car-kilometer by a bicycle-kilometer yields 41 eurocents of societal benefits, as calculated by knowledge platform CROW.

Making visible the positive (climate) impact that cyclists make together is paramount. In addition, Ring-Ring and the EnergyCoin Foundation are working towards a better valuation of bicycle kilometers.

How to join a pilot

After you create an account on Ring-Ring and log in, click on a bicycle at the bottom of your screen:

After that, click on “My Settings”

Which will lead you to the EnergyCoin Dashboard by clicking on ENRG icon:

Show local climate benefits

The Bicycle Bit is the first virtual token in the collection of virtual tokens that people can earn from measurable climate actions and collect them on the EnergyCoin Dashboard. We are also currently developing a pilot together with the largest climate action in the Netherlands: Warm Sweater Day, where we record the avoided emission of greenhouse gases through realized energy savings.

Building a clean and fair economy

In our current economy the damage to the environment is not calculated. And the positive impact of daily climate-friendly choices is not visible. People are currently not being rewarded for preventing the emission of greenhouse gases and strive for clean air, and the EnergyCoin Foundation wants to change that by facilitating local networks that build a society that fits within the boundaries of the Earth.

The EnergyCoin Foundation makes available the blockchain technology, the technology that makes information transparent, unchangeable and decentralized, for recording and making the value of measurable positive actions visible and exchangeable for a sustainable world. The EnergyCoin blockchain does not use mining, as a result of which energy consumption and transaction fees are low.

The launch of the Bicycle Bits and the marketplace are the first two important steps to facilitate citizen climate initiatives and local authorities to enable the construction of local new value systems, at low cost.

EnergyCoin Dashboard App: first version

Posted by Anne-Marie Pronk in News | 0 comments

16.11.18

The first version of the App will be web-based with a primary function to register users green behavior to the environment, through rewards received from EnergyCoin partner organisations like Ring-Ring and WarmSweaterDay. It displays info that track how friendly you are to the environment by cycling a bike or putting on a sweater and turning down the energy consumption in your home: total amount of saved kWh, m3 gas (m3 of gas costs 67 eurocent) and prevented CO2 emissions into the atmosphere. The dashboard will keep users record on daily, weekly, monthly, 6 months and yearly basis, as well as an overall view from the registration date. Our ultimate goal is to save our environment as much as possible, by showing you benefits of it, environmental and financial.

Login screen EnergyCoin Dashboard App

As there is a way to track with our App how much funds you’ve saved while behaving green, and how thankful the environment is for your behavior, we come to the secondary function of the App. You will not just be saving funds, but you also receive rewards from our partners!

Phase two consideration

Initial rewards will be in bicycle bits(BB) or a different virtual token. When you receive your virtual token, you can request from our partner to exchange that token for ENRG. In the App will be displayed how much ENRG would you receive for the virtual tokens you got as a reward.

And do not forget, the App is FREE!

In upcoming updates you will get more info about release date and partners! Stay tuned!

Syncing wallets and staking ENRG

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.

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.

EnergyCoin webwallet is up and running

The EnergyCoin webwallet is up and running now. As you know, we had a technical issue with it during the weekend. The issue is fixed and our technical team is monitoring the webwallet state.

Note that some features, like Exchange and Betting, are not functional.

Don’t forget to save your private key

This part is important, because of that you can secure your funds and recover them at any time.

How to get your private key on webwallet

  • After login on webwallet go on section “My Balances”;
  • Next to your address is button “address actions” which you have to click to see available actions;
  • Click “Show private key” and get it;

Make sure to keep it safe and not share with anyone, because that is the only access to your address, while your address is public.

Crex24 expected listing date

Since initial communication with Crex24 was on 25th-Oct-2018, EnergyCoin is expected to be listed not later than 6-Nov-2018.

Listing on a new exchange

Posted by Anne-Marie Pronk in News | 0 comments

25.10.18

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.

ENRG going to new exchanges & Green Blockchain App is being released soon

Posted by Anne-Marie Pronk in News | 0 comments

23.10.18

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. 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!
