SolarCoin is a cryptocurrency earned by generating Solar Electricity.
SolarCoins work like a reward program for solar power generators: People or businesses with solar panels can get a coin for each megawatt hour of electricity their solar panels generate. Users have to send scans of verified meter readings as proof of power generation, which are checked by volunteers.
Users can load their coins in an online wallet application, shop online from stores that partner with the project, or trade them for dollars, euros or other currencies on Lykke Exchange, a Swiss-based exchange platform.
Lykke is a cryptocurrency exchange that lets you trade bitcoin, Ethereum, FX, and digital assets. You can access the platform through your web browser or your mobile device. It’s available for both Android and iOS (you download the Lykke Wallet to get started).
Lykke offers several unique benefits over the competition. There’s 0% broker commission, for example, and low spreads thanks to a matching engine with spread priority. The exchange also offers guaranteed execution, immediate settlement, and direct ownership guaranteed by the blockchain.
