American inventor, engineer and programmer, co-founder of Apple Stephen Wozniak has launched a new company. The blocchain-startup Efforce aims to develop green technology and will help companies that want to improve their energy efficiency receive financing, writes CNBC.
The company is positioning itself as the first block-start platform for improving energy efficiency."Efforce is the first decentralised platform that enables everyone to benefit financially from any global energy efficiency projects and to make coordinated changes to the environment", says the startup website.
Efforce has been operating in a hidden mode for a year now and is the platform on which owners of corporate or industrial buildings can obtain financing for their "green" projects.
According to the company, everyone who is involved in the project can buy a WOZX token, and with this money the companies will improve their activities, which will help to improve energy efficiency, and the savings will be shared among the token owners.
"The Smart Contract will be able to divide the saved funds between token owners as well as companies that do not have intermediaries, based on accurate consumption and savings data", the company said.
Co-founer of Efforce Jacopo Visetti said:"At present, most small companies have a lot of difficulties because of Covid-19. Moreover, they cannot even switch to LED lighting or improve their production processes, although all of this can help them save money in the long term".
He added that Efforce allows business owners to safely register their energy modernisation project online and receive funding from all types of investors around the world. Stephen Wozniak also said: "Energy consumption and CO2 emissions are increasing exponentially around the world, leading to climate change and serious consequences for the environment".
On 1 December Efforce announced the official listing of WOZX tokens on two exchanges.
Now the WOZX cryptocurrency is already listed on the HBTC exchange, CNBC specifies. According to the publication, it will also appear on Bithumb Global next week.
