ECO coins are earned through sustainable actions.
Reserve your account today.
Eating meat-free meals, switching to a green energy provider or riding a bike to work can earn you ECOs which you can spend in our new sustainable marketplace to buy ecological experiences, services and goods. This is a new way to track, measure and reward sustainability so that now you can do good and get paid.ECO coins are stored in digital wallets accessible through a mobile platform. Sustainable actions are verified by inspectors, through smart IOT integration (e.g. a smart thermostat linked to your phone) and by certified vendors.
When you cut a tree and sell the wood, you will earn money.
When you plant a tree, you are creating value, but you won’t get paid.
Our ecology and economy are out of balance.
These days it is difficult not to hear about Eco Coin.
It has already gained some nicknames such as “the Green Crypto” or the “Tofu Crypto”. In the little “crypto-community” everybody is talking about this original crypto-currency that is supposedly “sustainable”.
7Dnews recently met Teddy Elsak, a specialist in crypto-assets in Paris and London. “This digital currency is specifically designed for investors willing to invest in crypto-assets in a sustainable manner,” he said.
“The idea is indeed very intuitive and quite simple. According to the network, this coin would be the first cryptocurrency to reward someone if he does sustainable actions. To be honest I think a few associations had thought of it some time ago but here they have implemented a genuinely original cryptocurrency that seems to work, and that people can easily understand.
In the cryptocurrency market, 2017 was a year of a wild ride.
It kind of reminded me of the bull run of the stock markets from 2003 to 2007, before the great crash of 2018. Fast forward 10 years and the same scenario has played out in the cryptocurrency market. We have had two years of wild gains where even tokens that were fundamentally worthless, rode on the speculative wave to gain so much in market value, making many people instant millionaires. 2018 can be described as the year that the chickens have come home to roost in the cryptocurrency market, and there has been a rebalancing across the board.
Now we know Bitcoin is nowhere near some of the ridiculous “$50,000 per coin” predictions that were thrown about last year.
Uber’s co-founder and chairman, Garrett Camp, has created his own cryptocurrency. (For more, see The Story of Uber.)
Called Eco to refer to the multiple facets of a monetary system – like economics, ecosystem and e-commerce — the project is currently in the design stage with limited programming complete, and Camp is looking for more field experts, scientists, and researchers to get involved in his initiative. He expects to initiate the test-net later this year.
The virtual currency system will be developed and operated by a new non-profit organization, the Eco Foundation. Camp, along with his partners at his startup accelerator Expa, plans to fund the Eco project with $10 million during the initial phase.
Eco aims to fix issues that are pain points for the existing cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum.
Using this quick step-by-step guide, you can start buying and investing in ECO [EcoCoin] using major exchanges such as Coinbase and YoBit.
To purchase EcoCoin (ECO) on the majority of the cryptocurrency exchanges, you will already need to have Bitcoin (BTC) or Ethereum (ETH) to trade with. The good news is that you can easily purchase either cryptocurrency at Coinbase using your Credit Card or even Bank Account.
NOTE: There are other places to purchase BTC and ETH online, but I’m going to focus this guide using Coinbase as it’s the easiest to use for new investors in cryptocurrency.
Although Coinbase has both iOS (iPhone) and Android apps, I have found the easiest way to setup your exchange account with them is to use their website.
