Wozniak Puts Money Where His Mouth Is
Wozniak co-founded Apple in Steve Jobs’ parents’ garage in 1976 and hasn’t founded a project since, although he has been a public supporter of Bitcoin and blockchain technology in the past, claiming to have first bought into Bitcoin at $700 and calling it “pure digital gold” in 2018.
Wozniak has since put his money where his mouth is and founded Efforce after he “started worrying about our children’s futures” with regard to the damage being done to the planet by man-made climate change. Efforce aims to revolutionize the energy efficiency market by offering capital to projects that try to tackle the issue, or at least offer an energy-saving alternative.
Efforce Token WOZX to Launch on HitBTC and Bithumb
Efforce said in a Medium post announcing the upcoming exchange listings that it has spent most of this year in “stealth mode” but has now broken cover and announced that its WOZX token will list on HBTC and Bithumb this week. Efforce will act as a digital marketplace for companies to raise funds for energy efficient projects, with contributions to be made in WOZX tokens.
Startups funded in this way will then use special metrics to measure energy savings which will then be logged on the Efforce blockchain, with any savings distributed into the investors’ profile as energy credits, which can in turn be used or sold.
