What is Energy Web Token?

Energy Web Token (EWT) is the native token developed by the Energy Web Foundation, a non-profit group that aims to use blockchain to achieve a low-carbon electricity system. It runs the Energy Web Chain, a public blockchain platform to help the energy industry meet regulatory, operational and market needs. The Energy Web Chain has partnerships with utility operators, grid operators, renewable energy companies, corporate energy buyers and others around the world. Its partners include AGL and Shell. Launched in mid-2019, the token has two main purposes. First, it is designed to protect the network against misbehaviour. Second, it is used to compensate validators by paying them transaction fees and block validation rewards. At the moment, only energy companies that meet Energy Web Foundation’s standards can become validators on the network.

Energy Web Token (EWT) is the 174th largest cryptocurrency in the world by market cap, valued at $223,613,870. The current price of Energy Web Token is $5.69, which is 6.725% higher than yesterday. Prices have ranged between $5.69 and $5.2 over the past 24 hours. All prices are listed in US dollars and accurate as of July 24, 2021 09:07 UTC.

What to consider when buying Energy Web Token

Here are some of the things to keep in mind when deciding whether to buy EWT.
  • Supply. As of April 2021, EWT has a circulating supply of approximately 30 million that are available and can readily enter the token economy. The maximum supply of EWT is scheduled to increase to 100 million over 10 years.
  • Decarbonization. One of the challenges of blockchain technology is the carbon emissions associated with the energy it consumes. It is estimated that the top five energy-consuming blockchains use more electricity per year than the state of New York. According to Energy Web's Medium, it is trying to move towards a zero-carbon operation for all blockchains by decarbonizing the XRP Ledger.
  • Staking. According to Cointelegraph in February 2021, it was announced staking would soon become available for token holders. Staked EWT earns an annual return of up to 20% if high-quality services are delivered.
  • Competition. There are private blockchains that work with energy operators that compete with the Energy Web Chain. However, in a recent Ask Me Anything by Crypto Buying Tips, the COO said reasons to favor a public blockchain over a private blockchain might include data privacy, customer consent, decentralization and decarbonization.
Disclaimer: Cryptocurrencies, including Energy Web Token, are speculative, complex and involve significant risks – they are highly volatile and sensitive to secondary activity. Performance is unpredictable and past performance of EWT is no guarantee of future performance. Consider your own circumstances, and obtain your own advice, before relying on this information. You should also verify the nature of any product or service (including its legal status and relevant regulatory requirements) and consult the relevant Regulators' websites before making any decision. Finder, or the author, may have holdings in the Energy Web Token or any other cryptocurrency discussed.
