ImpactPPA Provides Blockchain Based Renewable Energy Solution for Somaliland Hospital

Published

on

The world is tilting towards renewable energy and ImpactPPA, a blockchain energy platform is offering such an option to a Somaliland hospital. The option is one of reducing the cost of using fuel so that the money can be used for patients treatments. ImpactPPA decided to launched a ‘50 by 50’ scheme in partnership with the Earth Day Network where hybrid solar and wind systems will be installed in Somaliland.

The first hybrid system will be set up at the Edna Adan Hospital Hargeisa, the hospital which was set up  by the former foreign minister Edna Adan Ismail is a non-profit hospital. Electricity is a scarce commodity in health facilities in sub-Sahara healthcare facilities according to WHO. This alternative source of energy will cut down the cost of using fuel for the hospital and it was welcomed by Edna. She says, “The gift of clean energy will not only help us efficiently manage our operational costs but it will also greatly increase the available resources for the women who so desperately need our help.”

The Edna Adan Hospital Hargeisa began its operations as a maternity and has grown into a referral facility providing surgical, pediatric, medical, and obstetrical services. This was why it was chosen by ImpactPPA. The CEO of ImpactPPA Dan Bates explains their choice, “When we started talking about working with the Earth Day Network, we were looking for a project that would not only showcase the use of clean energy and the blockchain but one that would also offer access to energy and immediately benefit people’s lives. The Edna Adan Hospital became the perfect location for our first project together.”

Dan explained the energy supply, “The energy that we generate will power the hospital’s equipment and, subsequently, dramatically reduce the hospital’s electrical expenses which are greater than $0.50/KWh. The money saved will go directly back into the care and services that Edna and her team provide for these women in need.” More partnerships like this will lead to a better world.

Owenize Odia, Country Manager for Luno Nigeria facilitating a session at the recently launched Cryptocurrency literacy Tour for Universities by Luno

Luno has kicked off its cryptocurrency adoption program for Nigerian universities dubbed “Cryptocurrency Literacy Tour for Universities” launching out with the University of Lagos as the first of a series of tour where it will go about canvassing for the favourable adoption of cryptocurrency through knowledge in 6 Nigerian universities.

Luno, an exchange based off of South Africa was launched in 2013. It has since continued its growth trajectory by adding new users across 40 countries spanning more than 4 continents. It presently boasts of up to 3 million registered users across its platform with Nigeria as one of its biggest market.

Speaking on this development, Owenize Odia, the Country Manager for Luno said:

We are committed to educating our customers given the nature of the market and the tendency for people to fall into the wrong hands while online

With its debut tour kicking off in Unilag and having 300 youths in attendance, Luno is clearly taking the charge to bringing about perceptual shift and a favorable disposition towards cryptocurrencies which it says has not been properly understood. Through its representative Odia, it argues that the current financial systems was built for a non-digital age, ignoring the needs of the modern individual. Citing on the decentralized nature of a peer to peer digital currency like the bitcoin, it is not dependent on any central government or authority as obtainable with fiat.

She continued by saying

We are contributing by investing heavily into our Luno Learning Portal, which helps the public, the media, and other stakeholders educate themselves about the facts, opportunities, and risks in the cryptocurrency market,

In her post on LinkedIn, Odia assured the participants and other stakeholders that Luno would continue to focus on awareness initiatives such as this in Nigeria and Africa at large, thereby providing a reliable platform where just about anyone can visit either buy or sell cryptocurrencies.

Binance to Launch Charity Funds Solely for Embattled Persons CSW Slams Lawsuits

Binance to Launch Charity Funds for CSW Lawsuit Victims

Binance announces plans of launching a charity donation crowdfunding scheme to help cover for legal fees for those who are facing a Craig Wright lawsuit against them as announced through the private twitter account of Chaopeang Zhao just few days back.

To think that CZ is done with Craig Wright by not only delisting his coin the Bitcoin Satoshi Vision (BSV) ultimately triggering others such as Shapeshift, Blockchain.com, Krakenfx, Satowallet, etc to delist also is an understatement. He shows he’s not even done with him yet and basically calls him a coward who goes about bullying only those he thinks he can bully.

CZ tweeted a poll

With over 65% of those who participated in the poll going with the “I will Donate” option, I bet Craig Wright is seriously thinking wherever he is.

The billionaire early bitcoin investor of Australian descent has continually received criticisms on social media for slamming his critics with lawsuits. One of such critics who has been embroiled in a legal battle with CSW is Peter McCormack. He basically drew the attention that sparked the #delistBSV movement as initiated by Binance. He has been gifted $10,000 in BNB through the Binance Charity Foundation (BinanceCF)  with CZ taking the lead in the donation and had this to say about the new movement started by CZ.

While many praise this move by Binance CEO, others are not seeing from the same angle. Few are pointing out the extent of a rabbit hole CZ is dragging himself into which may turn out fatal not only to his person but also the behemoth corporation of an exchange he runs.
