NAIROBI, BITHUB AFRICA/ — BitHub Africa, the leading Pan-African blockchain Accelerator is announcing a launch for the Whive blockchain protocol happening on February 2nd 2020.
Whive IO, is a peer-to-peer blockchain protocol that is incentivizing the building of sustainable energy solutions through Trustless Rewards.
The protocol achieves this through a hybrid Proof-of-Work(POW) & Proof-Of-Stake(POS) consensus algorithm that favors devices with CPU(small) processors & are located in regions with a high solar capture reliability index.
The protocol has been developed by the wider BitHub Africa community, which includes engineers from around the World.
BitHub Africa, is developing Melanin Solar, a distributed energy solution for solar micro-grids, built on the Whive protocol. This enables the adoption of solar energy use especially in under-served regions of the World like Africa.
BitHub Africa has also open-sourced its blockchain engineering curriculum, which is curated from the 5 years of engaging the community, researching & developing the protocol.
The curriculum includes modules on how to setup blockchain nodes, mine tokens & build smart contracts to automate machine to machine(M2M) micro-transaction payments with a focus on the energy use-case.
This engineering course will ensure our community of African developers, entrepreneurs, & key institutions will understand how to deploy blockchain solutions.
