Green is a global, decentralized network of nodes that invert AC electricity into BC (Blockchain Current) using a proprietary blockchain protocol called Proof of Power. Green provides an energy efficient alternative to traditional blockchain mining. Green Nodes provide the energy needed to support the blockchain and are compensated in GREEN, the native ERC20 digital reward of the Green blockchain. The Green blockchain is a novel public blockchain built from the ground up to incentivize the contribution of low cost and renewable energy to support the blockchain.
Today, the Green blockchain, and its thousands of active nodes, invert and contribute the power required each day to confirm thousands of energy transfer transactions on the blockchain.
This documentation provides details on the novel technology that underpins Green, as well as how to earn GREEN, using a variety of connected devices. Our community has published this documentation to educate node operators and to inspire future development and innovation on the Green blockchain.
The Green Blockchain is a novel ERC20 blockchain built from the ground up to incentivize the contribution of low-cost, renewable energy to support the global expansion of the blockchain.
Earn Green Rewards
Green blockchain is operated by thousands of individual node owners around the world. Node owners contribute low-cost or renewable energy to power the Green blockchain. Node operators are compensated in GREEN, the native ERC20 digital reward of the Green blockchain.
Global Decentralized Node Network
Green is LIVE
Green is the first carbon negative network designed to incentivize and reward smart energy contributions to power the blockchain.
In July 2014, early blockchain pioneers recognized the long-term environmental impact of the expansion of blockchain mining around the globe. They imagined a smarter, better way to build the first carbon negative blockchain. Today, more than 5,000 active green smart nodes contribute low-cost and renewable energy to power the Green blockchain. Green is the first blockchain to reward and incentivize the adoption of renewable energy production by individuals, corporations, municipalities and nations.
The Green blockchain is pioneering even better ways to incentivize renewable energy sources. In 2017, the community created the Green Solar initiative enabling users of GREEN to reduce the overall cost of ownership of advanced solar power systems. The community is committed to building an eco-minded network by rewarding sensible energy production and consumption.
The Green Blockchain is a novel energy efficient blockchain designed to reduce the overall environmental impact of the global expansion of the blockchain. By leveraging a proprietary protocol called “Proof-of-Power”, the Green blockchain measures energy contributions by node operators around the globe to ensure a carbon neutral footprint.
The Green community is partnering with energy producers and innovators around the globe to offer community members special incentives to install and operate renewable energy power generators such as wind, solar and hydro electric systems.
Green Smart Nodes are compensated in GREEN for contributing low-cost and renewable energy to support the blockchain.
History + Evolution
We imagine a world where every family around the globe can support and contribute to the expansion and evolution of the Green blockchain. In July 2014, our community began the design and development of what would ultimately become the world’s first carbon negative blockchain. Today, thousands of Green nodes contribute low-cost and renewable energy to support blockchain functions around the world.
July 2014A community of solar pioneers and innovative developers conceived of The Green Blockchain and proprietary Blockchain Current Battery.
July 2015Proof of concept begins tracking energy usage in Bitcoin miners combined with solar power. Preliminary patent research and engineering files were developed by community leaders in cooperation with international legal team.
July 2016Additional testing across a wide network of community participants. The community completes the ALPHA phase of the software development. The community continued work toward international patent filings.
July 2017Developed solutions for tracking energy usage, integration across mining pools and gathering data and analytics. Green Smart Node begins development with a full-time team of engineers and developers. Residential and The Green Box Pro commercial mobile data centers begin deployment. The first deployments of the Green Inverter and Battery is tested on Bitcoin miners as part of the proof of concept.
July 2018 (20k + Nodes Activated)July 4, 2018 GREEN is launched in BETA. Green BETA deployments enable users to connect to a variety of hardware miners and servers. GREEN is able to connect to multiple blockchains to provide confirmations on the blockchain. GREEN is beginning to be decentralized around the world. Distributions daily begin as the Green community expands around the world. Green is connected to the first residential solar system.
July 2019 (40k + Nodes Activated)The Green decentralized community swells to more than 42,000 smart nodes with decentralized community operations and development. Green Smart Node 2.0 is released featuring applications for Mac OS, Linux or Windows operating systems. Green Smart Node can be operated on virtually any device. Green PowerPay introduced in 2019 making it possible to automatically pay hosting and utility bills using crypto.
July 2020 (50k + Nodes Activated)The Green decentralized community swells to more than 52,000 smart nodes with decentralized community operations and development. Green Smart Node 2.0 is released featuring applications for Mac OS, Linux or Windows operating systems. Green Smart Node can be operated on virtually any device. The Green Battery is decentralized around the world. Green blockchain begins development of Green NFT Rewards, Boost Rewards, Hodl Rewards, and Flow Rewards.
July 2021 (55k + Nodes Activated)The Green decentralized community expands to more than 50 countries around the world. PowerPay is beginning to integrate with more than 7,000 utility providers around the world. Green Solar is launched offering Solar energy solutions for residential and commercial customers with complete Green BC Battery integration. Light Share donations begin as the Green community begins donating FREE electricity to families in need around the world.
