Power Ledger to Move to Solana From Ethereum

Australia-based blockchain company Power Ledger is to migrate to Solana from Ethereum in search of higher speed and scalability.

  • The firm also cited the lower energy output of Solana's Proof-of-History (POH) and Proof-of-Stake (POS) mechanisms in an announcement Monday.
  • The Powerledger Energy Blockchain is built to audit and streamline the buying and selling of renewable energy.
  • "The Power Ledger technology stack was built on a low-power POS consortium in 2016 before transitioning to a modified fee-less Proof-of-Authority Ethereum consortium chain in 2017," Co-Founder John Bulich said.
  • "That serves its purpose in the short term but the limitations of this solution were always very apparent, including low transactions per minute."
  • The platform's POWR tokens will still be used for existing clients and remain on the Ethereum network.
