In this episode we discuss how the Melanin Solar project uses blockchain technology and CPU mining to enable community members to trade electricity. Utilizing the Lightning Network and the Whive protocol, the system allows energy to be stored and shared as digital tokens. Over 2,000 people are expected to gain affordable power access through this initiative. Developed by BitHub Africa, a seven-year-old blockchain accelerator, the project also includes the creation of “lightning hubs” across Africa to facilitate energy trading.
