Description Change this

Our collective was born out of a project developed during the program at the Strelka Institute in Moscow, which proposed a system for peer-to-peer energy production and distribution based on blockchain technology. In this phase we developed a web-based simulation app (phi.zone) that enables people to explore effects of decentralised energy, currency, and governance through a conversational user interface. In order to incentives the users and manage energy transactions we proposed a system of tokens related to energy generation and network reputation.
The project was presented to an audience of 2000 people in Moscow during the Strelka Summer Program (youtu.be/aS-cdDj8kXw), at the Moscow Urban Forum, and most recently at the Radical Networks Conference in New York.
This project gave us a ground to establish a conversation with blockchain and energy companies and experts, and find a way how to develop it further in order to get a feasible proposal that could be implemented in the near future.
