Rowan Blockchain
Rowan Blockchain is the world's first low-carbon Blockchain. Our blockchain uses a super low powered (therefore low carbon) Proof of Authority consensus mechanism coupled with our bespoke low voltage Rowan SmartMiner.

The Rowan SmartMiner
Our Rowan SmartMiner is based on the low powered Raspberry Pi and is hosted in properties throughout the UK.  The SmartMiner counts the energy produced by residential rooftop solar whilst transactions are verified on our custom-built Proof of Authority blockchain.

Rowan Coin - The base token for our network
We secure our network with a cryptocurrency called Rowan Coin.  This token prevents fraud on our network and gives each transaction value.  In the future customers will use Rowan Coin to buy and sell their energy,  pay for their energy bill, offset their carbon footprint, charge their EV, have the EV repaired -  plus a whole number of other use cases.  Our Cryptocurrency is a fundamental part of our business infrastructure.

What is Rowan Blockchain?

Rowan Blockchain is the world's first community-supported green energy blockchain. Based on the low powered POA consensus mechanism, which uses certificates to authorise transactions rather than utilising traditional energy-hungry mining. We have built a series of Energy focused apps that bring the Energy Market into the 21st Century, decentralising and digitising a traditionally archaic industry.

Vision

We want to deliver a low-powered and low-carbon blockchain.
We wanted to build a new kind of blockchain that is solar powered and very low carbon. Within our community our customers validate the energy transactions and are rewarded for the geneation of solar energy. We want to achieve this whilst at the same time encourage people to adopt roof top solar.

Using our custom-built Proof of Authority (POA) blockchain we can deliver a fast, low powered chain that is mostly powered by soalr energy. Our users support blockchain using our custom-built Rowan SmartMiner. The Rowan SmartMiner counts the energy being produced in the home and validates transactions on the blockchain.

The Rowan Blockchain is ideal for hosting decentralised applications (DApps) that are energy focused.  The chain can validate 219 transactions per second.  The applications have a multitude of uses from peer to peer energy transactions to rewards-based platfroms.

OUR PRODUCTS

REward

You can create your own reward token on our blockchain. This allows energy providers to join our network with their own token and this means they can also adopt our software platforms. As our blockchain is decentralised and transactions can be viewed by anyone itmakes it ideal for reward points programs and charity donations.

REtrader

Retrader is our peer to peer energy trading platform that enables owners of roof top solar tosell their energy to their neighbours peer to peer. The platform is fully automated and runs without any intervention or users input. It matches supply to demand transferring tokensfrom consumers to prosumers almost instantly. Smart meter readings place buys and sellson a virtual market, pairing up trading partners based on location.The platform has many other features including real time energy source notification whereyou can actually see where your energy is going or where the energy you are using actually comes from. Energy can also be stored on site in a battery and discharged at a later time when the market is more profitable.

REtrace

Tracking the source of the energy within utilities is an important part of what is needed. By utilising features on newly produced smart meters we can record the production of the energy holding details of Where, how and when the energy was produced. This enables users to generate their own tokenised energy certificates making not only trading of these certs fast and easy. But relieving the prosumer from the cost of buying the certs (currently about 5p per kW) in order to guarantee their energy is green.

FAQ

Renewable Energy Certificates (sometimes called a REC or a ROC) are certificates that prove that the source of your energy are from a renewable source. If you own a large wind farm or solar farm you can be assigned a REC for every 1 MW of energy generated. This has made the certificate market inaccessible to roof top or back yard electricity prosumers. Until Now. We have designed a new kind of energy company that has tokenised and fractionised the energy market. This allows the source of the roof top solar energy to be verified and stored on a blockchain. Allowing our customers to benefit from this untapped market.

We are a huge supporter of blockchain technology. Our blockchain is custom built and does not sit on any other well known blockchains. But as a supporter of blockchain our members as well as the usual ways pay for electricity, will be able to settle their accounts using cryprocurrency. The best and easiest way to purchase Crypto is from an exchange. The most popular by far in www.coinbase.com. The Coinbase website is very straightforward and easy to use.
