Disrupting the electric car charging network models across the globe, eCharge, the world’s first, blockchain-based ecosystem is in the midst of a successful crowdsale. The platform, designed to enable faster, easier and cost-efficient recharging of electric cars has so far raised for easy, faster 121730960 ECHG (12173096 EUR) in its on-going pre-sale ICO, started on March 6, 2018. The current pre-sale ICO phase is offering 15% bonus to the investors.
The future belongs to the electric cars’ mass adoption worldwide.
As per the International Energy Agency:
“The electric car market is set to transition from early deployment to mass market adoption over the next decade or so. Between 9 and 20 million electric cars could be deployed by 2020, and between 40 and 70 million by 2025”.
One of the challenges being faced by this fast-growing market is the lack of infrastructure. Electric car users may access the charging stations at work and at home, but they are unable to get the facility when they want to take some downtime over their weekend and travel long distances as they are usually unable to find any charging point on the way.
How Does eCharge Solve the Problem?
Bringing the e-mobility feature, eCharge platform is developed to be globally distributed by installing the eCharge stations at offices, hotels, parking lots, shopping malls and other user-friendly locations.
The eCharge charging stations will be installed by eCharge at participating sites without letting them incur any cost. It will also provide the electricity and back-end support free of charge. For the hotels entering the exclusive partnership with eCharge, it’s like providing a luxury offering to their customers without any upfront investment.
In addition, the hotels can also exploit the eCharge mobile app and market themselves to the user base, including special deals for the niche market.
Marcus Dold, the CEO of eCharge, says:
“Through our smart blockchain-based energy flow management software, we aim to build the largest battery energy storage network in the eCar community. We’re grateful for the support we receive from the e-mobility community worldwide in our initiative to implement 50,000 charging stations in hotels, offices, apartments and parking lots”.
Benefits for the Users
Users of the eCharge app can locate the eCharge stations all across Europe, without having a need to use another app for locating a hotel. By booking via eCharge system, users will get exclusive accommodation rates. The transparent and fast booking ecosystem eliminates the waiting time and station bloat by coordinating the available charging slots seamlessly.
Through its built-in kilowatt-hours cryptocurrency wallet that operates the native ECH tokens, users can book and pay for their charge even in advance, without needing currency exchange or a credit card.
