Plaza signs MOU to support Terawatt’s mission to light up the world with LED

Light-emitting diode (LED) proponent Terawatt and MerchantChain™ developer Plaza are “joining forces” and “pooling resources” in an agreement that leverages the strengths of both projects.

Terawatt CEO Evan William

Terawatt CEO Evan William said his project would use Plaza’s MerchantChain platform to “help drive LED sales, give users a wide selection of merchants to choose from, and make payments at lightning speed.”

In the meantime Mr William said the two projects would “market to each other’s communities and leverage each other’s platforms to increase global adoption of distributed ledger technologies”.
Commenting on his choice of Plaza and its fast and frictionless MerchantChain, Mr William said: “I like Plaza’s focus on technology, transaction speed, usability, and the team as well.

“Plaza’s CEO [Kevin Johnson] is a former US Marine Force Recon,” he added. “They are the elite of the elite and find solutions to impossible problems at breakneck speed in the field. That, combined with Kevin’s IT background over decades, makes me believe this project is 100% likely to be a huge success.”

Plaza CEO & Chief Architect Kevin Johnson

Plaza CEO & Chief Architect Mr Johnson said he was looking forward to working with Mr William and Terawatt, which he described as a “unique, turnkey, patent-pending, environment-friendly blockchain company that is helping to drive the mass adoption of LED lighting technology”.

“Their passion and singular focus on a specific problem and its solution is something that is perfectly supported by our technology platform,” Mr Johnson said. “We will take care of the technical side of things for them so that they can focus on their mission.”

Terawatt will create a deflationary decentralised autonomous organisation (DAO) funded by utility companies, LED sellers, businesses, token holders, and energy customers worldwide to promote LED upgrades and provide token incentives for individuals, businesses, and governments to upgrade to LEDs.

Unlike older blockchain technologies whose networks consume as much energy as small nation states, Plaza’s next-generation MerchantChain distributed ledger technology can be maintained by users’ mobile applications, desktop applications, as well ultra-low-powered IOT (internet of things) devices.

“More such deals will be announced over the next several weeks,” he said.
