Blockchain For Energy: ELECTRIFY.Asia – Panel Discussion & Live AMA

Worldwide, energy markets are subject to economic friction arising from centralized models; power prices are often either artificially inflated in markets with high barriers to entry or capped low to force out the competition. Blockchain technology could change that by strengthening the market role of consumers and producers by enabling them to buy and sell energy directly.
