“We created Efforce to be the first decentralized platform that allows everyone to participate and benefit financially from worldwide energy efficiency projects, and create meaningful environmental change,” said Wozniak.

“In these difficult times, many small companies are struggling. They can’t afford to switch to LED lighting, streamline production processes, or even insulate to conserve heat, all of which could save them money in the long term.

“Efforce allows business owners to safely register their energy upgrade projects on the web and secure funding from all types of investors around the world. The companies will then have more available cash to use for other critical projects such as infrastructure or hiring.”

How Efforce works

Efforce helps by evaluating the investment required, calculating the expected return, and creating an Energy Performance Contract (EPC) that reveals the savings and the periodicity of the returns for its investors and the business.

  • The crypto structure then lists the project for crowd contribution.
  • Stakeholders can buy into the project using fractional or whole WOZX tokens.
  • Efforce measures energy savings on these projects through smart meters attached to the blockchain. The savings data are loaded to the investor’s profile as an energy credit for use or sale by the investor.
  • Energy credits are distributed in megawatt-hours.

    During bull trends in the cryptoverse, these large entities can take profit on their positions, especially if the futures market is overcrowded.

    Wealthy investors reducing their crypto exposure to rebalance their portfolios can cause high price swings in the market, especially when accompanied by cascading liquidations.

    However, recent data suggests otherwise as data retrieved from Glassnode points at entities holding more onto the world’s most popular crypto, rather than selling; as data shows Bitcoin balance on Crypto Exchanges just reached a 2-year low of 2,337,271.262 BTC.

    A previous 2-year low of 2,338,724.621 BTC was observed on 08 April 2021.

    The surge in this crypto asset is coming amid a lawsuit from the SEC which accused XRP’s $1.3 billion initial coin offering of being an “unregistered securities offering.” The allegation led most American crypto multiple exchanges to delist the crypto and XRP lost its place as the 3rd largest crypto by market value.

    That being said, crypto traders appear to be backing the crypto asset amid credible reports suggesting that Ripple lawyers have posted two victories in their legal tussle against the powerful American regulator, including gaining access to internal Securities Exchange Commission discussion history regarding crypto assets.
