HotCity, a sustainable energy project funded by the Austrian government and operated by various partners, among which the Austrian Institute of Technology, Picapipe GmbH, Digital Sunray and Graz Energie Agentur, announced last week the launch of its testnet on the Ardor public blockchain.

It is secured on the Ardor blockchain, on which the reward points are digital assets, or tokens, recorded on the Ignis child chain. The announcement was largely covered in various media outlet such as Cointelegraph (in English, German and Spanish), Cryptodaily, Ledgerinsights, Europeworldnews and many more.
