SolarCoin cryptocurrency pays you to go green – tech – 06 February 2014 – New ScientistPosted: February 26, 2014
Based on Bitcoin, the new currency rewards people with coins in return for proof that they have generated solar energy
People with solar panels on their house will receive solar renewable energy certificates from their energy company in return for feeding a megawatt-hour of electricity back into the grid. These certificates are already traded for cash, but present one to SolarCoin’s organisers and you’ll receive one coin – they expect to start distribution in a matter of weeks.
