Energy Web Chain
The Proof-of-Authority chain for the energy sector
Energy-sector focused entreprise-grade chain for dapps.
The Energy Web Foundation (EWF) has launched the world’s first public, open-source, enterprise-grade blockchain for the energy sector.
The Energy Web Chain (EWC) for Ethereum is a public, enterprise-grade blockchain platform to help energy companies with the management and regulation of the industry. The EWC is a public blockchain network open to all utilities, users, and devices.
The platform uses the AuRa consensus mechanism, and its validators are large energy companies such as Shell, Elia, and LO3, as well as small startups like OLI Systems, FlexiDAO and Anyblock Analytics.
The native Energy Web Token (EWT) can be bought at Liquid. The gas and the token are both inexpensive, and the block times are fast.
