Blockchain energy startup Power Ledger expands its peer-to-peer energy trading trial to the next stage

According to Cointelegraph, Power Ledger, a blockchain startup focused on energy, has expanded its P2P energy trading trial to the next stage in Fremantle, Australia. Power Ledger revealed that its peer-to-peer solar trading trials are continuing to track rooftop solar energy traded between Fremantle homes. Families participating in the project can set their own energy prices in the market. The test was originally scheduled to be completed in June 2019, but will be extended to December this year. Power Ledger began trials in November last year, and since then it has handled nearly 50,000 transactions per month on its blockchain platform.
