Russia's State Grid Corporation Rosseti tests blockchain system for electricity payment

Russia's State Grid Corporation Rosseti is testing an electric fee payment system based on Waves' distributed ledger. The pilot project involved 400 households in two administrative regions of Russia. In the next phase (expected to start in early 2020), it will be extended to Kaliningrad and Sverdlovsk Oblasts (with a total population of approximately 5.3 million people). It will then be extended to Russia as a whole.
