Energi 3.0 begins development
Energi 2.0 Completed - Upgrade to Proof of Stake.
Energi 3.0 continued development — over 50% complete.
Energi Core begins work on Energi X (a 0-fee Futures Exchange to rival Bitmex), with its primary trading pair being NRG. Energi X is a major endeavor and will be one of Energi's major focuses over the coming years. It alone can drive major demand for NRG, and enormously empower Energi both in the realm of cryptocurrency exchanges, and as a cryptocurrency platform at large. There is no firm estimated release date yet, but launch is tentatively planned for Q3 2020.
Expanding marketing efforts to bring about awareness for Energi and broaden the community. (ongoing)
Energi 3.0 begins public testing — featuring major additions to Energi's capabilities and abilities to be useful in real-world context. This is our most significant update since launch.
Earndrop Round 4 begins (after Rounds 2 and 3 are finished). Due to high demand, Round 4 is expected to finish quickly. NRG for Rounds 2, 3, and 4 will be released concurrently after Round 4 is finalized.
Energi 3.0 is released — Energi rebuilt as a smart-contract platform adapted from Ethereum, compatible with apps written for Ethereum.
This major update enables virtually all of Ethereum’s capabilities while incorporating our Treasury, Masternodes, and Governance systems, all-in-one. Energi will begin adopting existing Ethereum infrastructure such as MyEtherWallet. This upgrade also enables dApps to migrate to the Energi ecosystem, by doing so they will benefit from Energi Defense (cybersecurity), our incubator, and other expanding services.
Energi will begin onboarding the most impactful blockchain projects and dApps into the Energi platform. Energi will also begin giving grants and providing support via our Incubator Program for what we determine to be the most powerful upcoming dApps in the space.
Venezuela Adoption Campaign begins — Energi will begin starting to build utility in countries suffering most due to poorly functioning currency and payment systems. Merchants will be supported for accepting Energi and helping their customers use Energi. We want an Energi QR code in front of every store checkout in Venezuela.
Major campaigns begin to push for Energi acceptance for high-volume digital merchants, we will gradually move toward campaigns to build merchant acceptance worldwide.
Energi X begins public testing.
Energi Mobile Wallet — Designed to be as easy to use as Venmo and Cash App, being able to sync with phone contacts, and making Energi payments easy for users and merchants. Will also be expanded to feature one-click conversion between Energi and Energi Gold (a stablecoin built in Energi like Maker’s DAI, pegged to the price of gold).
Upon the Energi Mobile Wallet completion, we will start major campaigns begin for pushing Energi adoption worldwide, targeting the countries where it's most needed.
Energi X tentative launch timeframe!
In the coming years, Energi seeks to retain thousands of full-time contributors, and function as a powerful global organization unlike anything seen in the cryptocurrency space. Energi will continue expanding marketing efforts, development, and ease of use, to rapidly increase demand and adoption.
