Restart Energy, the fastest growing energy provider in the EU, is building an efficient and transparent ecosystem – Restart Energy Democracy (RED) to bridge the global divide between energy producers, prosumers and consumers using blockchain technology. To this end, experienced advisors are key. Certainly members of the European Parliament have such in spades, and being appointed directly by the people, have a high degree of legitimacy as well.

Cătălin Sorin Ivan has all of these virtues and is also a blockchain enthusiast to boot! We are very pleased to announce that Catalin will be joining our distinguished board of advisors.

Cătălin’s resume is an impressive one – having been active in local and national politics since 2003, and an MEP of the European Parliament since 2009. He is one of the youngest members to ever grace the halls of Brussels and he aims to spearhead blockchain and deregulation efforts in the heart of the EU. Before getting into politics, he studied and earned a Masters degree in International Business – a solid background for blockchain and deregulation advocacy.

During his first 5 years as an MEP, he was part of the Progressive Alliance of Socialists and Democrats. Since 2014, he has joined the Progressive Alliance of Socialists and Democrats in the European Parliament. He held the vice-chair of the delegation for relations with the countries of the Andean Community until 2014 and is now the vice-chair of the committee on Budgetary Control. He has been a member of the Special committee on the policy challenges and budgetary resources for a sustainable European Union after 2013, the Committee on Economic and Monetary Affairs, the Committee on Economic and Monetary Affairs, the Committee on Budgetary Control, and 10 other delegations and committees during his years in Brussels.

“[…] I am by trade an economist that believes in social responsibility, in the need for personal and national audits, in taking risks; innovation, antreprenorial spirit, willingness to work, but also care towards the environment and the active fight against poverty and social gaps are key in reaching these goals.”

Restart Energy is on the verge of its pre-sale (Monday, 15th of January), where it offers a 20% bonus of its MegaWatt (MWAT) tokens to contributors – this is part of its three sales drives (the private sale is still ongoing), culminating in a Token Generation Event (TGE), in support of the launch of its RED project, and its near-future expansion in over 35 countries.

RED is a unique ecosystem that uses blockchain solutions that work within existing legal frameworks, and is composed of the MWAT token, the RED-Platform and the RED-Franchise.

The MWAT token gives access to the RED-Platform – a revolutionary software designed to merge blockchain smart contracts, Bancor’s Smart Tokens™, and smart meter technology in order to cut out the middleman between energy producers, prosumers and consumers via a P2P framework where costs are reduced dramatically for all involved parties.

About Restart Energy

Restart Energy Democracy (RED) is a blockchain-powered platform, backed by Restart Energy – a European energy provider with 20 million USD in revenues. The company was built with a vision to democratize the energy sector and quash the dominance of legacy monopolies in the energy world. The company’s credentials include a customer base of 27,000 household and 3,000 corporate clients, expanding at more than 2,000 clients per month, and it’s impressive growth: 400% in 2016 and 425% in 2017.

Restart Energy is developing the world’s first peer-to-peer, fully decentralized energy transfer platform allowing users to send and receive energy worldwide, based on its proprietary virtual balancing system, that uses A.I, Big Data, and IoT technologies. The RED ecosystem is comprised of the RED-Platform, RED-Franchise and RED-MWAT Tokens.

The RED-Franchise is the first power retail franchise to simplify and allow any company or entrepreneur to operate their own power utility enterprise, enabling them to start selling energy in more than 35 deregulated energy markets globally.

The RED MegaWatt (MWAT) Tokens are digital cryptographic utility tokens that give access to the RED Platform Software and to the RED Franchise. The RED Platform is a blockchain based decentralized energy trading platform that makes it possible for energy consumers and producers to Send and Receive Energy Worldwide. The tokenized energy traded on the RED Platform can be physically delivered at local rates in countries with deregulated energy markets where Restart Energy will be present directly or through a franchise. The RED Franchise is the first power retail franchise that make it simple and easy to start and operate your own power utility company. Importantly, it should be noted that potential franchise partners will need to own (this is not a form of payment to us) a certain number of RED MWAT tokens, in order to qualify for our various franchise tiers – the secret to our award-winning growth as a business!

Given this opportunity, we would like to remind potential contributors, that our private sale (40% bonus tokens, minimum purchases of 50,000 USD) is ongoing and will end on January 14th, 2018, followed soon after by our public pre-sale (20% bonus tokens, minimum purchases of 10,000 USD) that starts January 15th, 2018 and ends on February 12th, 2018, after which our Initial Coin Offering (15% bonus tokens, going down by 1% per day) launches on February 14th, 2018 and ends on March 14th, 2018.

Russia, Norway and Japan Have Embraced Bitcoin in 2017

Bitcoin, which was first launched in January 2009 has surpassed all expectations in 2017. Its value started the year on shaky ground, going up and down on a daily basis. But for a few months, the price has been making headline news as it rose well above what anyone predicted. No one could have foreseen the price of Bitcoin would reach $20,000 in less than 12 months, and all estimates made earlier in the year were for half this amount. In 2009, one could buy 5,000 Bitcoin for $27 and will have made a very nice profit if they had kept them. ‘Bitcoin’ – Zach Copley via Flickr (CC BY 2.0) 2017 Landmarks Bitcoin is becoming more and more accepted as a currency by governments and organisations, with nearly 6 million users worldwide. Along with its huge growth in users and value, there have been several landmarks for this digital money in 2017, including: Japan making Bitcoin a legal currency for savings and transactions. This has increased the country’s use of it a great deal, and now some Japanese employers partly pay their staff in Bitcoin. Russia announced it would legitimize the use of cryptocurrencies, including Bitcoin. Initially, they were concerned that Bitcoin was a danger to its economy and were considering laws that would have made it illegal to use. Now they are embracing it. Norway’s largest online bank, Skandiabanken, integrated Bitcoin accounts. It began publicly trading on the CBOE Futures Exchange. Bitcoin futures rose by 26 percent very quickly and the market had to be halted twice to give it chance to calm. The Bitcoin symbol was encoded in Unicode version 10. There have been other exciting ventures associated with Bitcoin, including the launch of the first Bitcoin Lotto. It allows prizes to be paid out in Bitcoin, which depending on the exchange rate can increase the winning’s value tremendously. Those with Bitcoin wallet will have a much better time as deposits and withdrawals in cryptocurrency is instant on the platform. The Lottoland jackpot stands at 1055 BTC at the moment, which is a small fortune. Photo: Lottoland The Future of Bitcoin What does the future hold for Bitcoin? That is difficult to predict. Certainly, it looks as though some of the countries such as India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, and Indonesia where Bitcoin trading is not allowed will remove those barriers over the next few years, and that can only help its growth. There are other cryptocurrencies that would love to take the top slot (such as Litecoin and Ethereum) and are working hard towards it. Could it be that it is the maximum limit to Bitcoin supply that is driving people to hold on to the digital currency and explore other cryptocurrencies, jumping into the altcoin bandwagon and getting more retailers to accept cryptocurrency payments. It is all an unknown that only time will tell, but just like with currencies of all countries, dealings will happen in whichever is the most profitable, and for the time being at least, that is Bitcoin.
