Hi friends, let me let you on an incredible news… It’s BITLUMENS, The Blockchain-based Company With The Aim To Bring Solar Power and Water To Far-off Places With The Application of Internet of Things (IoT)!!!
Now that I have your attention, let’s get right to it
What exactly is BITLUMENS?
Bitlumens is an ecosystem that distributes solar energy devices in areas where there is no access to electricity and connects it to block circuits. Using the device, people improve their credit score. Banks can access data using their own BLS BitLumens token and use it to issue microcredit to people who need it. Bitlumens is a blockchain company created to bring solar energy and water to rural and remote communities. The company's technology is powered by both blockchain technology and the Internet of Things. The company is registered in Switzerland. The company aims to provide social and environmental transformation for the people who need it and support the minimum feasible products (MVP) in Latin America. The company is registered in Switzerland.
BitLumens’ goal is to create both good ROI in finance and measurable environment and social influence. BitLumens gathers KYC data (Know Your Customer data) for each customer while providing access to electricity and water worth renewable resources. BitLumens targets at providing solar energy in remote villages and hence contributes to reduce the emission of CO2 and health hazards, displacing kerosene lamps, disel generators, plastic, biomass and biofuels as lighting source, increasing customer savings, proliferating financial inclusion and in some cases providing employment.
BitLumens offers a digital platform which can be distributed, managed by consensus and off grid smart energy solutions in low resource households. With those purposes, BitLumens will contribute to the development of UN SDGs, especially Gender Equality and Climate Action, Sustainable Cities and Communities, Affordable and Clean Energy, Good Health and Well-being.
With the application of clean technologies to provide electric power, BitLumens is helping people in rural areas have a way to improve and their quality of life and businesses.
The mission is to offer a peer to peer platform where users adopt PV systems to reduce carbon emissions and get access to lighting and water in places where there is no power grid or proper access to water. The platform allows the payment of the hardware in installments and using Bitlumens tokens (BLS). The system also allows microfinance and remittances in digital and fiat currencies while using the blockchain.
All around the world, 1.3 billion people lack access to electricity. In Latin America, fewer than 1 out of 10 people do not have access to electricity. 23.2 million of 466.1 million people do not have electricity URUGUAY Haiti remains a regional outlier, with only 29 percent of its population — mostly concentrated in and around its capital, Port-au-Prince — having access. Haitians who have electricity receive power an average of five to nine hours per day.
The global warming forces us to come up with a new energy paradigm based on alternative sources that are less dependent on fossil fuels.
BitLumens is a blockchain-based company registered in Switzerland with the aim to bring solar power and water to far-off places with the application of Internet of Things (IoT). BitLumens provides environmental and social transformation for people in need and provide MVPs (Minimum Viable Products) in Latin Ameria.
BitLumens is led by Veronica Garcia (CEO and Founder) who has experience as an investment consultant.
BITLUMENS, BLOCKCHAIN TECHNOLOGY AND IOT
Blockchain Bitlumens uses a combination of offline and offline data sources to calculate the credit score of ready-to-use farmers: digital IDs are not part of the blockchain but will be centralized. Each user can have his own ID and credit history. This information can be shared with third parties offering microcredit solutions, governments and development banks. Users can access microloans by paying a specific interest rate based on personal and behavioral variables. The main idea of the company is to bring a user and eco-friendly internet of things device to bring energy and water to places which are unbanked and do not have a power grid. The Internet of Things is the concept of connecting any device to the Internet and to other connected devices. The IoT is a giant network of connected things and people – all of which collect and share data about the way they are used and about the environment around them e.g smart microwaves, self- driving cars, wearable fitness devices. The agents of the company will install the hardware and collect the payments.
The company will use the app to collect information about the consumption of each client and know how much to charge for each one of the team. The company plans to use clean technologies to provide to rural communities which need to use kerosene, plastic, battery torches and candles as they do not have access to electric power. By using these devices, these people would have a way to improve their businesses and their quality of life. The company’s technology powered by both the blockchain technology and the internet of things will make it possible for people to use electricity, charge their electrical appliances and even water their crops.
How It Works?
BitLumens brings to users an eco-friendly IoT devices to supply energy and water to unbanked places which do not have a power grid. The hardware and collect the payments will be installed by the agents of BitLumens.
The company will use the application to collect information about the consumption of each user and know how much to charge for each one of the team.
The company has already started its first pilot program and its mobile app in beta phase. There is a second pilot test scheduled for the end of the first half of the year. The rest of the improvements made by the company will be mostly made until the end of 2018.
Facing this scenario, Latin America must face a triple challenge:
Achieve security of supply
Equity in the access to energy services
BitLumens is the hero to help people who are living in the dark to access to the solar power electricty to improve the quality of life and head for a sustainable development future.

*Application in process
The soft cap foot the Initial Coin Offering is $1 Million, However, the event will end early only after 15 Mil-lion BLS tokens have been sold. This total amount is based on the projected investment and funding that is needed for a period of three years.
The total tokens supplied is capped at 50,000,000 and the smallest denomination available is 0.0001. This means the 15 Million BLS token that is expected to be used during the ICO is only 30 percent of the total.
Another 25 percent will be held by Bitlumens to prove liquidity to the secondary market. In addition to this, the team and advisors will be allocated 11.5 Million (23 percent) BLS tokens and 10 Million (20 percent) BLS will be allocated to private placement.
