Energi will establish an Incubator Program to focus on supporting early stage blockchain startups looking to develop on the Energi platform. This program will encourage the high quality infrastructure projects required to build out Energi’s platform ecosystem. Energi will attract and support these projects, provide advice, ensure that the economic and business models are sound and encourage the projects to collaborate. These platform partners will also have access to a database of metrics and assessments, which they can leverage to evaluate their project and ensure they meet industry standards.
As with all emergent technologies, the blockchain ecosystem is afflicted with bad actors, looking to gain unauthorized access to funds. Understandable concerns with these scams and hacking inside the cryptocurrency space, and the heightened security measures required to ‘become your own bank’, have created a natural delay in the mass adoption of cryptocurrencies generally. Energi Defense and its investigative arm, the Energi Bureau of Investigations (EBI), will serve to protect its user base from hackers, scammers, and other bad actors in the space. Early stage projects will be able to access support for scam/hack incidents to provide a level of security for their communities. Energi will work with relevant law enforcement agencies and as cryptocurrency exchanges and other institutions to provide more protection, wherever possible, for the Energi community to protect its users.
