Apple Co-founder Steve Wozniak launches Efforce, a blockchain platform to fund energy-efficiency projects


Steve Wozniak, Apple’s co-founder, is launching a new blockchain project called Efforce to fund funding energy-efficiency projects.

Efforce, a blockchain-based energy-saving platform, has already launched its token WOZX on, a 100% Token Holder Owned Trading Platform.

Efforce aims to help companies to fund energy-efficient projects and save energy expenses. Launching a token named WOZX, Efforce allows contributors to fund energy efficiency projects by investing in WOZX and be repaid in tokens representing the energy savings achieved.

“We created Efforce to be the first decentralized platform that allows everyone to participate and benefit financially from worldwide energy efficiency projects, and create meaningful environmental change,” stated Wozniak. The goal is to decentralize the $241 billion energy financing market, much as Apple aimed at in popularizing personal computing. The most important part of Efforce’s project, the WOZX, has been carefully designed and issued. The Wozniak team chose to first launch the WOZX. The cooperation was a natural choice given HBTC’s superior technology and industry-leading trading experience.

The energy efficiency market has always been too complex for retail investors. However, with the innovative business model launched by Efforce, anyone interested in energy projects can easily access the market, while companies who wish to implement solutions will be able to negotiate directly with consumers or contributors in the open market. Tokenization will play an important role in this process. With the issuance of WOZX, a contractual relationship between contributors and companies seeking funds for energy projects is formed, allowing contributors to participate directly in the savings generated through the projects.
