With each passing week, things continue to look more optimistic for the blockchain and cryptocurrency ecosystem.
Last week for example was quite positive for the crypto world as Germany is ready to embrace blockchain technology for the first time in the energy sector.
Bitcoin price remained above the $11,250 support level. Analysts say that the flagship cryptocurrency is ready to escape from this range to rally to $12,000.
Like always, most major altcoins followed bitcoin in outperforming this past week and gaining more and more.
Without further ado, let’s take a look at the major highlights of last week in the amazing world of crypto.
According to a blog post by Energy Web, DENA partnered with over 20 crypto and blockchain entities to enable ‘energy assets in Germany, such as thermostats, solar PV systems, batteries, and electric vehicle charging stations to undertake automatic registration with a decentralized ledger of identities, allowing their utilization by the German grid for a range of services such as virtual power plants and frequency regulation’.
The project also hopes to control CO2 emissions by creating a CO2 mapping tool that is able to determine what are the next climate policies to be enforced based on a transparent database. The report adds: ‘The ideal case would be a city equipped with sensors that record current environmental values and CO 2 emissions. Such a city does not yet exist in Germany. With the already existing possibilities of digitization, however, it is possible to approach this ideal’.
