“This article is meant to give an overview of the ecosystem that Elastos has built in a short time. It is easy to forget all the companies and projects Elastos has partnered with, since the Elastos ecosystem is expanding at an unbelievably fast pace. This is the complete beginner’s guide to The Elastos Ecosystem.”
G3 — NEO & Bitmain
“First of all, a common misconception is that Elastos is built on NEO platform. This is completely false. Elastos has its own blockchain and is NOT a NEP5 token. Elastos already has its main network that went live back in December 2017 at https://blockchain.elastos.org/. Da Hongfei of NEO and Jihan Wu of Bitmain are both early investors and advisors to Elastos. Jihan Wu has committed to redirecting hashing power from Bitcoin mining to Elastos. G3 is a co-operation between NEO, Elastos and Bitmain who share a vision of a decentralized economy and smart web. Key features of the smart web include the virtual machine, runtime environments and trust zone, provided by Elastos and Bitmain, consensus provided by NEO and KYC provided by Ontology. G3 is meant to cooperate with Chinese government regulations and considering two of the leading figures of Chinese blockchain are involved (Jihan Wu and Da Hongfei), the likelihood that these projects will greatly succeed when the Chinese adopt crypto-friendly regulations is very, very high.”

First batch 100 families get the opportunity to use the Dapp to purchase the clean energy. Big companies such as Apple are saying they will keep using clean energy but how could they do that easier?”
“Blockchain provide a solution for that. You can use the smart contract to connect power generation to get real data and make Electricity tractable. DC to AC converter, Solar panels, even converters have cpu build in, they all could be used as a node. Right Now we can’t trace back what kind of electricity we are using now. Currently, we are testing the Dapp in Shenzheng. At the second stage, 10,000 family would join to use the App. We are planning in 2 to 3 years, we will have a energy trading platform. Customers could be able to trade their energy and make payment through the platform. Company such as Solarcity, construction solar panel above your roof. But right now, the energy produced by solar panel can only be used for yourself, the extra cannot be used for trading. In future, with blockchain we could realize P2P or C2C energy trading. Customers could purchase the clean energy though web or App by themselves without other party get involved.”
“Panda Green will not have ICO, rather, their token will be used to reward customer’s behavior. Consumption of clean energy or using electrical car will be rewarded. You can use the reward token to pay for your electricity bills, pay for Uber or sharing bicycles. With the help of Elastos, Panda Green will have a great performance at energy sector.”
