Energi: NRG

“NRGcoin is an industry-academia project that was originally developed at the Artifical Intelligence Lab of the Vrije Universiteit Brussel. The NRGcoin mechanism replaces traditional high-risk renewable support policies with a novel blockchain-based Smart Contract, which better rewards green energy. See below more about the concept and how it benefits different parties.”

Ticker: NRG
“No ICO or Premine
Ticker: NRG
Block time: 1 minute
Consensus mechanism: Proof of Stake
Stake requirements: 1 NRG
Masternode requirements: 1,000 NRG
Treasury cycle: 14 days
Approximately 1 million Energi is released per month. The allocations can be observed easily as “10/10/40/40.”
10% to the Stakers (PoS).
10% to the Energi Backbone.
40% to Masternodes.
40% to the Treasury.
Thus, for every block, allocations are: 2.28 Energi to the Stakers, 2.28 Energi to the Backbone, 9.14 Energi to the Treasury, and 9.14 Energi to Masternodes.
Since Treasury allocations are paid in two-week cycles, they are made in lump sums of approximately 184,000 Energi every 14 days.
Masternode payments began approximately 5 months after launch, on September 18, 2018. Until this point, Masternode rewards were re-directed to the Treasury. See more masternode stats at: https://nexus.energi.network/masternodes/listing
There is no maximum number of coins in Energi because the Treasury and Masternode allocation are essential to Energi’s survival, and are essentially the engine behind Energi. Thus we do not see a reason to give Energi a “death sentence” by removing its engine, even hundreds of years from now.”

Useful Terms to Know

DeFi: Decentralized finance (commonly referred to as DeFi) is a blockchain-based form of finance that does not rely on central financial intermediaries such as brokerages, exchanges, or banks to offer traditional financial instruments, and instead utilizes smart contracts on blockchains, the most common being Ethereum.[1] DeFi platforms allow people to lend or borrow funds from others, speculate on price movements on a range of assets using derivatives, trade cryptocurrencies, insure against risks, and earn interest in savings-like accounts.[2] Some DeFi applications promote high interest rates[2] but are subject to high risk.[1] By October 2020, over $11 billion (worth in cryptocurrency) was deposited in various decentralized finance protocols, which represented more than a tenfold growth during the course of 2020.[3][2] As of January 2021, approximately $20.5 billion was invested in DeFi.[4]
