WePower vs. Power Ledger: who will win the future for renewable energy?

WePower’s recent ICO created a lot of hype because WePower $WPR also plans to use blockchain to innovate the way we consume energy. The project team boasts a revolutionary token model supported by existing partnerships with energy companies and governments/regulators, targeting a market over $1 trillion USD.

The tokenization of the energy industry has been one of the many hyped topics in the crypto world lately, mainly due to Power Ledger’s meteoric rise in Q4 2017. Since listing on Binance in early December, $POWR is up nearly  10x in less than 10 weeks.


How is WePower different than Power Ledger?

The key differences, summarized:

Power Ledger is providing a peer-to-peer trading platform for people to sell their excess renewable energy, which lowers costs for energy buyers. The $POWR token also allows people to buy equity in future renewable energy assets such as power plants or wind farms.

WePower is a platform that will assist in crowdfunding for renewable energy assets by allowing energy producers to sell future energy for lower prices.

The capital raised from the sale of future renewable energy will be used to fund the construction of the energy producing asset. Whoever buys the discounted energy can use it to trade it on the WePower platform or consume the discounted energy once the asset has been constructed and is producing power.

Which is a better project?

As you can see, both projects are innovating the ways renewable energy assets can be funded, as well as the way the energy produced by these assets are consumed. Energy markets are a solid use case for blockchain technology, and both Power Ledger and WePower are providing decentralized solutions that can compete with cheaper “dirty energy” markets. In fact, one of WePower’s marketing slogans is “The world runs on dirty energy. Let’s change this.”

It’s too early in the development of both of these projects to call which one is better, but they both have strong teams and roadmaps that are winning the support of the crypto community.

What about price gains?

Considering that Power Ledger has already been established on top crypto exchanges such as Binance and Kucoin with a current market cap of nearly $300M USD, it’s safe to say that WePower $WPR has much higher potential in terms of price gains in 2018.

Wepower is currently only trading on IDEX and Huobi, and within 10% of the ICO price at the time of writing this article.


After initially listing only on IDEX (a decentralized ethereum exchange with small volume), WePower’s price quickly shot up very high to over 3X the ICO price, where many investors dumped and took profits as the current market conditions in crypto are quite Bearish, down over 50% from all-time-highs set in December 2017.

After listing on Huobi, a much larger exchange than IDEX, more investors took profits and WePower has found what appears to be solid support around the 0.00013 ETH level.

In USD terms, this is about 10% cheaper than WePower’s price at the time of the ICO. If you believe in WePower’s project and team, and more importantly DYOR (DO YOUR OWN RESEARCH), it’s a great time to get involved.

Check out both projects and decide for yourself. This is not financial advice 🙂

Kucoin: The People’s Exchange

The cryptocurrency world is moving so fast, it can be challenging to keep up with.

One of the latest trends to keep on your radar is the rise of decentralized cryptocurrency exchanges. Binance is the first example, which plans to go fully decentralized in their road maps, recently became the largest cryptocurrency exchange in the world by volume. Kucoin has quickly risen to be the first major competitive threat to Binance, with more competitive incentives to promote user adoption. These decentralized exchanges are changing the landscape of what cryptocurrency is, and what it means for the future of global finance.

The cryptocurrency explosion has opened new markets and new business opportunities which have created an arms race of epic proportions. Cryptocurrency exchange platforms are in all out war to become the top exchange in the wild west.

Cryptocurrency trading platforms like Coinbase and Bittrex are in deep trouble. Recent US-tax regulations coupled with old-school thought process has these mammoth exchanges on the brink of panic. Users of these US-based exchanges have been overwhelmingly dissatisfied with their lack of privacy and also their tax reminders. If you are one of those people who have had a bad experience with coinbase in particular, check out this song about coinbase by Coindaddy, “Straight outta coinbase”

Exchanges like coinbase are more interested in profit and for this reason they have not been keeping up with the times – there is a serious movement towards incentivizing users to use exchange platforms.

The incentives offered by Binance and Kucoin come in two forms:

  1. Referral commissions paid out to users who bring in new users based on the trading fees the new users incur
  2. Discounts on trading fees when using the exchanges’ cryptocurrency, such as BNB (Binance coin) and KCS (Kucoin shares).

If you are jumping into cryptocurrency trading now, you are better off starting your journey with one of these newer, more innovative platforms.

Binance and Kucoin are completely shattering the competition and taking the lead as the dominant cryptocurrency exchange platforms. These platforms are investing their time and money into the cryptocurrency community, which is paying them back thousands of times over.

Because of this, the Kucoin cryptocurrency exchange is tied for my number one recommendation as the best cryptocurrency exchange for beginners.

Here’s why I love Kucoin…

  1. Kucoin Shares and profit sharing
  2. Access to a huge variety of cryptocurrency alt-coins
  3. Kucoin is currently accepting new members 

Numerous cryptocurrency exchanges have paused taking new members due to unprecedented demand and this means that it is becoming more challenging to enter the fascinating world of trading cryptocurrency.

Whether you want to jump on the crypto-train today or in six months time, I strongly recommend you to set up an account with Kucoin, and as soon as possible.

I believe that in the next 6 months Kucoin will share the throne with Binance as the top cryptocurrency exchange platform in the world and that at some point in the next few weeks, Kucoin will probably stop taking new members.

Yes, I have affiliate links in this post. But the biggest reason why I’m promoting Kucoin (which is one of the exchanges that I trade on myself) is that I 100% believe Kucoin is positioned to take over the cryptocurrency exchange market, and given its structure, early adaptors are the ones who are truly going to benefit.

Crucially, at some point, Kucoin will likely have to temporarily close its doors to new members.

If you are looking to start trading cryptocurrency on Kucoin, you can do so by following the link below.

The rest of this article will explain why Kucoin is revolutionizing the cryptocurrency market, why I think this particular exchange is primed to take over as the number one cryptocurrency exchange platform, and the step by step process of setting up an account.
