Energi (NRG) is a digital currency that is attempting to become the “world’s leading cryptocurrency” through the “unification of smart contracts, governance and a self-funding treasury to ensure longevity and enable rapid growth.” Launched in 2017 by Tommy World Power, a cryptocurrency and blockchain personality, the project is trying to create a next generation cryptocurrency that can survive well into the future.
Energi is soon to release version 3.0 of its platform, and is also in the process of moving into an Ethereum-based code base. However, the team plans to incorporate multiple enhancements to the code, including the aforementioned treasury and governance models. The treasury model is spoken of a lot by the team because they believe that it will sustain development long into the future,
The roadmap details how the team plans to implement their vision. 2019 has already seen the release of Energi 2.0, which brought with it an upgrade to a Proof-of-Stake (PoS) consensus algorithm. Other development milestones include completing over half of the work required for Energi 3.0 and EnergiX, a zero fee futures exchange. The team believes that the latter will boost the adoption of the NRG token, and the EnergiX launch has tentatively scheduled for Q3 2020.
The rest of 2019 will see the full completion of Energi 3.0, public testing for it, increased marketing efforts and DApp progress through its incubator program. Energi 3.0 is slated for release in Q4 2019. 2020 will also see the launch of multiple campaigns, including an adoption campaign in Venezuela.
