EnergyCoin Dashboard (ECD) Phase 2

Posted by Anne-Marie Pronk in News | 0 comments


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.

Phase two around the corner

EnergyCoin Dashboard (ECD) phase 2 is now in closed beta, our development team is testing it and thus far the results are good. Very soon, the dashboard will go live with new features and transactions are going to be enabled. Then you start to earn EnergyCoin by choosing the bicycle over a car! With the ECD you are able to track your Green Behaviour, it will be displayed on a dashboard and one of the measures is in avoided CO2 emissions. Phase 2 is around the corner, so if you don’t have already an account, make sure to download on your iPhone or Android Ring-Ring and afterwards register on ECD!

Don’t forget your ENRG address

Your ENRG rewards are going to be displayed on ECD, but to receive your funds, you’ll need your EnergyCoin address from exchange or wallet. Every account is going to be able to set one address only, but it can be changed at any point. Transactions are going to be automatic, so make sure to generate your ENRG address before even creating account on ECD!

If you want to HODL ENRG funds, then download desktop wallet or generate web wallet address; if you have problem with syncing desktop wallet, read this article where it is all explained.

If you want to instantly trade ENRG funds you received, then you should check one of the following exchanges and pick the best fit for you: Crex24, Bitibu or Nova Exchange.

EnergyCoin joins forces with the biggest climate campaign in the Netherlands

Posted by Anne-Marie Pronk in News | 0 comments


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 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.
