The Power Ledger Platform (Platform) is a trustless, transparent and interoperable energy trading platform that supports an ever-expanding suite of energy applications, with an exchangeable frictionless energy trading token, Sparkz.
Power Ledger Pty Ltd to address three of the major challenges facing the energy system globally:
1. Finding a way to include individuals in high-density housing in the booming distributed energy economy;
2. Re-inventing electricity networks to provide an incentive for the connection of DER;
3. Mitigating the risk of stranding multiple billions of dollars in valuable network assets.
The Power Ledger Token (POWRTM) is the fuel of the Power Ledger Ecosystem with bespoke private trading applications creating Sparkz in exchange for POWRs. Sparkz are currently purchased and redeemed using fiat currencies with individual trading platforms hosting closed-loop exchanges for energy and Sparkz.
The market flexibility of the Ecosystem is facilitated by deployment of a dual token Ecosystem (POWR and Sparkz) operating throughout its two blockchain layers.
POWR tokens are the frictionless blockchain tokens that allow Application Hosts and Participants access to and use of the Platform (like a limited software licensing permission).
Sparkz tokens are issued against escrowed POWR tokens, via a Smart Bond, and used by the Application Host to onboard its customers.
