The Energy Web Chain is a public, enterprise-grade blockchain platform specifically designed for the energy sector’s regulatory, operational, and market needs. It has become the industry’s leading choice as the foundational digital infrastructure on which to build and run blockchain-based decentralized applications (dApps).
Interoperable and Universally Accessible
The EW Chain is a public blockchain network open to all utilities, users, and devices.
With a virtual machine identical to public Ethereum, developers can begin writing smart contracts and dApps with little to no additional learning curve.
Supported by the Global Energy Community
A validator- and developer-based approach to on-chain governance stewards the blockchain in the best interests of the global energy sector.
The enterprise-grade EW Chain boasts high scalability, low transaction costs, and lean energy consumption, thanks to its permissioned Proof-of-Authority consensus.
As with most public blockchains, the EW Chain features a native first-layer utility token, the Energy Web Token (EWT). The token serves two main purposes: a) protect the network against misbehavior and b) compensate validators via transaction fees and block validation awards.
Users and application developers are not required to use EWT for their own applications beyond paying for transaction costs on the EW Chain. They can use cryptocurrencies or fiat currencies, as well as second-layer tokens native to their particular applications.
The ability to access multiple #EVcharging networks is a good first step, but ... imagine what universal charging can do to increase #EV adoption and remove barriers? #Blockchain can help make it possible.
Join me at this time next Thursday for a meetup @EatonWorkshop in #DC to learn ... insights from @energywebx about how #opensource #blockchain solutions are enabling the global #cleanenergy transition with real-world examples of solutions in development now https://t.co/Xkk8zikrZR
The #energyrevolution is in large part characterized by an explosion in DERs. ... Supporting the growing # of transactions btw the grid and these assets (rooftop #solar, battery storage, EVs) will also be essential to a #cleanenergy transition.
#energyblockchain provides a solution
Next Wednesday at #VERGE19 in Oakland: EWF's @DougJMillerJr and @PTTNews' ... Supharat Ridthichai will co-present on #energyblockchain and #AI to explain top use cases and how companies can leverage the tech. We hope to see you there!
"for market participants to move further, faster in the context of the ... #energytransition, #blockchain should be understood as an enabling technology that can support future market designs and architectures—P2P or otherwise."
