ElectriCChain Reliable Industrial Scale Node
Project has begun at Solcrypto in February 2016. Funded by Sunpulse K.K./Solcrypto
Scope of Work: Industrial Scale DC datalogger. This logger called the WCC200 is made by Cloud Industries. It has its own login platform, it needs to be converted so that SolarCoin can be added in the format 1MWh = 1SLR.
Skill level: Blockchain/Dev (Medium), Solar (low), Monitoring Hardware (High but led by Solcrypto expertise).
Goals: More SolarCoin nodes are required globally that are easy to setup. This problem is solved with ROKAS. These people have written a wallet OS system that runs on any Raspberry Pi 2.
Background: ElectriCChain is a Blockchain As a Service (BAaS) and we are using the SolarCoin blockchain but are actually open and technology agnostic for collaboration and development with other blockchains such as Ethereum, lisk etc. The main aim of ElectriCChain is to build the largest open scientific solar monitoring system by connecting solar monitoring devices (data loggers, inverters, Raspberry Pi nodes) with the SolarCoin blockchain. We are always on the search for talented developers who can help us with this mission. The “new-language-layer” project is also important as it aims to facilitate building a cross- blockchain language for synchronization between blockchains. As JFK said when he gave a speech about sending a man to the moon, “We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard.” JFK and also a good philosophy that some of us like is “There is no success, no failure, only make. Keep making.” Unknown
Estimated Budget: Undisclosed or SolarCoin Equivalent plus 120 hours testing and debugging work. Currently we have burnt through 2BTC and 15 hours of engineer time.
End Dream: A stable reliable backbone to the ElectriCChain. Standardised to a certain extent. Connect this logger to the Project SkyGold (NASA ISS) and the AMES Sustainability Base at San Jose.
Timeline: Before November 2016 target
