Energi Mine Launches Phase Two of Its EnergiTokens Rewards Platform

  • UK-based blockchain energy company Energi Mine has today launched phase two of its EnergiTokens rewards platform
  • The platform provides financial incentives for energy-saving behaviour in the form of cryptocurrency.

UK-based blockchain energy company Energi Mine has today launched phase two of its EnergiTokens rewards platform, providing a financial incentive for energy-saving behaviour in the form of cryptocurrency.

Following the successful launch of the platform in May of this year, this second phase introduces a management dashboard for approved vendors, allowing them to manage clients and distribute tokens. Consumers using these vendors will be given the power to interact with them directly as they continue to earn ETK and trade it in for rewards.

Currently, users of the EnergiToken rewards platform can use their ETK to pay their energy bills, charge electric vehicles, or exchange it for fiat currency. Actions that earn ETK include taking public transport, reducing energy waste in the workplace, and purchasing energy-efficient appliances.

It launches in English today, with Japanese and Korean language versions launching on 6th August, and Traditional and Simplified Chinese versions following soon after on the 13th.

Cultivating a culture of energy efficiency is seen as key to reducing a number of environmental issues, such as pollution. The Energi Mine release comes as three Chinese cities appeared in the latest list of the world’s ten most polluted cities, including its capital city Beijing. In a speech at the Chinese Academy of Sciences, President Xi Jinping praised blockchain technology as a potential solution to environmental issues within the country.

Meanwhile, Energi Mine is continuing to establish partnerships with major organisations. Earlier this year, it partnered with Manchester-based FuseX to launch an e-card debit card. This will allow customers more freedom in how they spend their ETK, allowing them to effectively spend it anywhere.

More recently, Energi Mine announced a relationship with the Energy Managers Association to conduct a three month trial of the ETK rewards platform with Network Rail, the UK’s railway infrastructure operator. The initiative, which rewards Network Rail employees for saving energy in the workplace, is part of Energi Mine’s strategy to disrupt the $2 trillion global electricity market and ensure mass adoption of ETK.

Omar Rahim, CEO of Energi Mine said:

We are extremely happy with the progress to date. This latest update will expand the possibilities open to those using the Energi Mine rewards platform. Whether it is through allowing consumers and vendors to interact more freely or in giving vendors more control over transactions – Energi Mine is taking another important step towards creating a fully functioning ecosystem to incentivise energy efficient behaviour.

CoinMetro Opens Doors for U.K. Crypto Traders by Adding Support for GBP

CoinMetro, one of Great Britain and the EU’s most user-friendly cryptocurrency exchange platforms, is pleased to announce that they will now support deposits, withdrawals and trading with the British pound sterling (GBP). The second fiat currency added by CoinMetro (after the EUR), users of the exchange can now easily buy or sell Bitcoin (BTC) with GBP. This is especially convenient for customers in the U.K. who are looking for a quick and easy way to convert BTC to GBP and GBP to BTC.

CoinMetro already offers one of the safest fiat on- and off-ramps for those looking to trade or invest in cryptocurrencies in Great Britain or the EU, and the inclusion of GBP - not readily supported at most other crypto exchanges - helps them to stand out above the competition. Deposit options include credit card, bank transfer, and other cryptocurrencies, some of which include Ethereum (ETH), Ripple (XRP), Litecoin (LTC), and Bitcoin Cash (BCH). In all, CoinMetro supports the trading of 12 different coins and tokens, including their own utility token, XCM.

Crypto Trading Made Easy

Designed with ease of use in mind, CoinMetro offers their customers an exchange with a pleasing graphical interface that makes navigation highly intuitive. This helps lower the barrier to entry for first-time traders seeking to purchase their first Bitcoin, which now includes those looking to trade in denominations of GBP. For the more advanced trader, CoinMetro also supports margin trading and professional order options.

“Save all the hype, the retail side of crypto is still a very under-serviced client segment,” said Kevin Murcko, CEO of CoinMetro. “With this new offering CoinMetro is giving a faster and more cost efficient way of diversifying into this highly sought after asset class to our clients transaction in GBP. The ability to move in and out of crypto right from your local bank account and in your local fiat currency, in seconds, cannot and should not be under appreciated,” he added. In terms of outlining his plans for expansion, Murcko says, “We are focusing on going regional to go global. Uphold the best service, comply with regulations, then move on to the next region.”
