It looks like the blockchain power peer to peer networks have started arriving in this country. Powerledger - it's a peer to peer electricity play using the blockchain. Power Ledger -A New Decentralised Energy Marketplace - Power Ledger - Where Power meets Blockchain Its tokens (POWR) are run over the ether network. It's garnered some mainstream press https://powerledger.io/wp-content/uploads/2017/08/afr-power-ledger-3.pdf It will be interesting if they get up - after all, with the screwed up nature of the politics surrounding electricity in this country - P2P may be a way to go. The backers seem respectable and the token is part of real world transactions - electricity. I kicked in $700 into their pre-ICO. It will be interesting to see how it fares. It's an interesting application of the blockchain technology that isn't a pure cryptocurrency play.
