Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak launched a new cryptocurrency this week. But how do you get your hands on it?
WOZX is the token for Wozniak’s new energy-saving platform, Efforce.
According to the company’s whitepaper, Efforce is “a blockchain-based energy-saving trading platform” that “brings together those who want to improve the energy efficiency of their buildings or industrial processes with a pool of contributors interested in being repaid in tokens representing the energy savings achieved.”
In other words, WOZX is given to those who take part in Efforce’s energy-saving initiatives. Holders of the token may also take part in decision-making involving the Efforce platform, too.
So how do you buy some? Well, WOZX is only available on one exchange right now—HBTC. And next week, it will be available to buy on Bithumb Global.
To buy WOZX, you’ll need to set up an account with the HBTC exchange, which takes minutes to set up. Then, once in the exchange, you won’t be able to buy WOZX directly—you’ll need to buy the token it’s paired with: Tether (USDT), a stablecoin pegged to the US dollar.
Buying USDT on HBTC is easy; to do so, hook up your bank or credit card to the exchange and click the buy button. Once USDT on the exchange, you can use it to buy WOZX. You can also move USDT that you've bought on other exchanges, such as Coinbase and Binance, to HBTC, and then use that USDT to buy Woz's new token.
At the time of writing, one WOZX is worth $1.09.
So there you have it. If you want to be one of the first to get your hands on Wozniak’s new cryptocurrency, you can do so on one of the lesser-known exchanges—and it’s pretty easy.
