Blockmate’s First Blockchain Company: Web3 mining app which connects the Web3 protocols, giving lucrative incentives to millions of users with an internet connection. Easy to Use: Requires no technical expertise and very little configuration.
Blockmate and Sunified have partnered to launch the first solar energy oracle token. This global service will leverage Sunified’s patented UNITY sensor hardware to digitize electrons directly on solar panels.
Participation in these solar projects via Sunified’s token economy will begin in Q4 2023. These community and developer programs will bring an exciting opportunity to engage in the early development of a cross-chain tokenized energy leveraging machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI) of the future.
Sunified has set out to create a global marketplace enabling solar photovoltaic (PV) production data and application programming interface (API) access to every solar panel, creating additional revenue streams from the data and digital offtakes. Energy tokenization is a significant driver for capital formation in developing solar and renewable assets, democratizing the ownership and access to solar.
Sunified’s Web3 oracle protocol will use DeepTech, machine intelligence and AI to crypto anchor, enrich and store the solar and PV production data sets into a blockchain ledger for immutability. In addition, the platform data will also benefit financially from its ability to perform real-time granular stamping of green energy carbon credits via EnergyTag.org rather than renewable energy certificates or large-scale generation certificates (that can take up to three months to originate, verify and list).
