Ptwist is a H2020 European project, whose goal is to reduce plastic waste, and promote circular economy on plastic assets. As such, used plastics are re-entering the consumption system (for instance through fablabs who melt the plastic, or artists who will repurpose the plastic for other uses. This circular economy, in which the citizen plays a central role as he is both a plastic provider (used bottles etc.) and a repurposed plastic user (buys the repurposed objects). For this to take place, PTwist offers a marketplace on which plastic can be sold and bought with PTwist currency, the Plastic Tokens. These tokens are relying on a blockchain and support ERC20 features, and can also be used thought a mobile phone wallet app.
