ElectriCChain was launched with the mission of accelerating our transition to a post-scarcity economy by encouraging solar energy to initiate the energy singularity—the transition from fossil fuels to a sustainable, renewable energy economy. The initiative was cofounded by Starlab alumni Nick Gogerty and Christopher Altman with solar advocates Luke Johnson and François Sonnet, with support from the SolarCoin Foundation.
As SolarCoin's blockchain backbone, ElectriCChain records all ledger transactions to the blockchain. To date, the project has granted more than 8 Million MWh of solar power across 62 countries—enough to power the city of Amsterdam and its residents for a full year.
