Power Ledger (POWR) is heading to Necker Island for the XTC 2018 Finals
Power Ledger made it to the top three of the 2018 Extreme Tech Challenge (XTC).
Energy cryptocurrency provider Power Ledger has hit the top three of the 2018 Extreme Tech Challenge.
On 12 January 2017, Power Ledger announced that it has been included in the top three finalists in the 2018 Extreme Tech Challenge (XTC). All three finalists are going to appear on Richard Branson’s Necker Island in order to pitch their ventures to a judging panel.
XTC is a competition that empowers entrepreneurs and their companies by providing them with visibility and resources as well as helping them get the ability to grow exponentially. The ultimate winner of the XTC will have the chance to scale, get mentorships and access to key investors.
Power Ledger co-founder and Chairman Jemma Green commented:
Getting the chance to present our peer-to-peer renewable energy trading platform at CES 2018 was a fantastic opportunity to get our message out to even more markets around the globe. We know that our solution is one that can truly make a difference in humanity, in both developing and developed nations. Visiting Necker Island for the Blockchain Summit was a great privilege and I’m so excited that Power Ledger can return as an XTC finalist.
The other two finalists are Revl and Owlet. Revl is a smart action camera company which uses AI-powered editing software while Owlet is an infant health platform which seeks to empower parents to care for their children.
Due to the recent natural disasters that devastated the British Virgin Islands, the XTC 2018 Finals have been rescheduled and will take this fall 2018.
