On the 13–12–2020 at 23:56:07 UTC we wrote our DSA-1 prototype to the Stellar blockchain using our FRED Asset Control Token (FACT).

FACT will be used to track our manufactured products with the aim of reusing battery packs. Consumers of our products will be able to search and view information about the history of the product held on the blockchain. We are aiming to begin shipping of our JV developed products by Q4 2021.

Today marks the first crypto purchase for a physical product on our Green Energy focussed marketplace with the payment made in Stellar Lumens (XLM) the blockchain our token is built on.

Our customer was very pleased with the experience, quick and easy, exactly how crypto should be!

We think this is a significant achievement and a milestone for our project.

One of the biggest issues in the mass adoption of crypto is having a physical use other than trading, meaning when you can use your crypto to purchase a physical item.

For the majority, getting crypto out of the exchange and back into fiat is an obstacle course and so often the crypto funds tend to be traded on the next big thing in the hope it’s going to be worth the fiat challenge. …


We decided to do a little treasure hunt to keep our community busy by hiding the secret keys to two Stellar wallets.

Here are the public addresses;

Let’s see how long it is before they are found :)


Our token sales will be moving to a HODL’s rewards-based scheme until further notice. This is to encourage buying from our platform which provides our project with funding (for Marketing, Exchanges, Marketplace etc) and also aids in maintaining a more stable token value. Purchasers for the next sales rounds on our platform will be entitled to a bi-monthly interest rate based on the number of tokens purchased from our platform and holding that purchase amount when wallet snapshots are taken at the end of each month.

That dreaded phrase you really don’t want to hear when you have worked so hard at a relationship, often used in breaking up or when someone is about to get dumped. Not that we want to break-up or dump anyone (including our tokens), we are in it for the long run, we just need to work it out together.

I have used the title “It’s not you, it’s me” in reference to the fact that there seems to be something wrong or missing in our project.

After nearly three months of fundraising, we have raised a pitiful $2400 and although other projects we have spoken to are also struggling to raise funds, our figures are pretty bad. We could have raised more funds selling team calendars (should I be April or November?). …

The world is rapidly evolving and driving towards a more digitalized era, all thanks to technological advancement. As the human population continues to increase over time, man is tasked with the problem of how to better his immediate environment and the world at large. This drive has led to the creation of powerful machines, automobiles, drones, and much more. Permit me to say that technology is indeed the 8th wonder of this world.

Unfortunately, man’s desire to create a better life for his society is lately becoming a threat to his immediate environment. How one may ask? The answer is not far-fetched from the fact that man’s continuous quest to create enhanced technology devices does not put the environment into consideration. …

As a young child, I was brought up in poverty. I grew up in Tasmania, Australia, but in a low-social industrial area at an average time to live. My family come from lower-class working life “Labourers”, and we lived in government housing in a city full of poverty, destitute and crime. Growing up, I’d often wondered why the world had to be this way? The world should and could be a better place for us all, right? We could all live in a relative utopia, and there’d be no poverty, famine and homelessness. …

Disclaimer: FRED Energy and Stellar do not promote the consumption of alcoholic beverages (just in case :)

Yes, it’s official FRED Energy (FRED) is a custom token on the Stellar network. It took us a while, three blockchains later and we can confidently say that Stellar will be our forever home (unless we build our own blockchain again, but then why would we?).

The benefits of being a Stellar based token are many, here are just a few;

· Lightning fast transactions (1–2 sec)

· Ultra-low-cost transactions (fractions of a cent)

· Access to decentralised exchanges

· Ideally suited to utility tokens

· Regularly maintained by the Stellar Team and community

· Turin complete giving added security

· Stellar Smart Contracts…

Just under one billion people still live without electricity. The world has moved from telephone to the internet to self-driving cars and Mars missions but 1/7th of our population is deprived of the basic comfort of a fan or a light bulb. Even after a century of innovation, there was a limit to the amount of electricity produced by fossil fuels as well as the distribution of this expensive electricity to the world’s poorest continents and countries.

Electrification is important

That brings us to another huge problem exacerbated by lack of electrification: poor health. The World Health Organization puts it succinctly: “Unreliable electricity access leads to vaccine spoilage, interruptions in the use of essential medical and diagnostic devices, and lack of even the most basic lighting and communications for maternal delivery and emergency procedures.” …
