App and usage

Wat­ti­fy is a crowd­in­vest­ing plat­form for impact projects and renew­able ener­gies. The goal is to advance the ener­gy tran­si­tion so that every­one can par­tic­i­pate. In addi­tion, each project is pre­des­tined to gen­er­ate an income, but it is indi­vid­ual for each project and depends on the per­for­mance, while mak­ing a pos­i­tive impact on soci­ety and the envi­ron­ment. The projects pub­lished on our web­site have been pre­vi­ous­ly eval­u­at­ed from three points of view: tech­ni­cal, legal and finan­cial. The min­i­mum invest­ment in each project is €1.

From the moment the Wat­ti­fy app can be down­loaded from the Store, reg­is­tra­tion is pos­si­ble. To do this, the app must be launched and, if it is being used for the first time, Sign in” must also be clicked to com­plete the reg­is­tra­tion process.

Yes! The Wat­ti­fy app can be down­loaded for free from the App/​Play Store as soon as it is released.

We focus on qual­i­ty and safe­ty. That’s why an onboard­ing process based on the high­est cur­rent stan­dards is cru­cial. This way, we can all be sure that project financ­ing is car­ried out by real peo­ple who have made a con­scious deci­sion to do so. In this way, we all ben­e­fit.

You can find all infor­ma­tion about the app on our web­site and in our explana­to­ry video. If you have spe­cif­ic ques­tions, just send an email to hello@wattify.de.

The issued tokens can be con­vert­ed into euros on a pro rata 1:1 basis. To cash out the tokens, click on Cash Out in the wal­let and then on the desired pay­ment method.

Please check first if the error can be fixed by an adjust­ment itself. If this is not the case, the account can be delet­ed via the set­tings and the reg­is­tra­tion can be per­formed again. Of course, we are also hap­py to help per­son­al­ly, just send an email to hello@wattify.de.

Invest­ment and impact through tech­nol­o­gy

We give you the oppor­tu­ni­ty to use your finan­cial pow­er in a sim­ple way.
Whether it’s €1 or €10,000 — you decide how much you want to invest.
No rein­vest­ment pres­sure. No con­tract trap. Just get in and invest.

The min­i­mum amount is €1 and the max­i­mum amount is €10,000 per invest­ment. For your own pro­tec­tion, indi­vid­ual lim­its are set based on your invest­ment expe­ri­ence.

Issuers can con­tact Wat­ti­fy and apply with their projects. After all doc­u­ments have been reviewed and eval­u­at­ed and meet our qual­i­ty stan­dards, these projects can be pub­lished in the app.

Crowd­in­vest­ing is the financ­ing of a project or ven­ture by rais­ing small amounts of mon­ey from a large num­ber of peo­ple — typ­i­cal­ly via the Inter­net in today’s world.

Any­one who is over 18 years old and has an account with a sup­port­ed pay­ment provider resid­ing in Ger­many. Mon­ey laun­der­ing iden­ti­fi­ca­tion is also cru­cial. Any­one who can­not be iden­ti­fied under mon­ey laun­der­ing law is also not allowed to invest.

No, you can of course make up your own mind about the app and the projects.

Yes! As long as the project is open for fund­ing and only up to the max. indi­vid­ual sub­scrip­tion lim­its.

Just as with oth­er invest­ment oppor­tu­ni­ties such as stocks and shares. It is the user’s respon­si­bil­i­ty to declare the prof­its made for tax pur­pos­es.

The indi­cat­ed prof­it is a fore­cast and there­fore can­not be guar­an­teed. There is, as every­where in life, a resid­ual risk that unfore­seen things can hap­pen, such as nat­ur­al dis­as­ters. Wat­ti­fy places the high­est val­ue on high-qual­i­ty projects, and the report­ed vari­ance of return is man­age­able and rel­a­tive­ly sta­ble com­pared to stocks. Yet, the acqui­si­tion of these secu­ri­ties is asso­ci­at­ed with con­sid­er­able risks and can lead to the com­plete loss of the invest­ed assets.

After suc­cess­ful com­ple­tion of the project financ­ing round.

The project overview in the app con­tains all rel­e­vant infor­ma­tion about the respec­tive projects. Since all projects on Wat­ti­fy are sub­ject to the high­est qual­i­ty stan­dards, no fur­ther risk assess­ment makes sense. Investors can decide for them­selves which project is most suit­able for them based on the infor­ma­tion pre­sent­ed.

You have it in your hand, the­o­ret­i­cal­ly from the first pro-rata dis­tri­b­u­tion of tokens.

A ser­vice fee is required to cov­er our costs for pro­vid­ing and oper­at­ing the plat­form. This is charged pro­por­tion­al­ly based on the invest­ment amount. If you do not want to use your own wal­let, a pre­de­fined wal­let in the app can be used. This use is of course asso­ci­at­ed with an addi­tion­al ser­vice fee.

A pay­out from the invest­ment is only pos­si­ble after the min­i­mum term has expired. This is deter­mined indi­vid­u­al­ly for each project. How­ev­er, it is pos­si­ble to have the dis­trib­uted prof­its paid out.

In this case, the financ­ing does not mate­ri­al­ize and all investors receive their invest­ment back.

We offer access to sus­tain­able asset class­es. Investors can invest from EUR 1.00. The max­i­mum amount depends on their income and assets.

We democ­ra­tize access to sus­tain­able asset class­es. Investors can invest from EUR 1.00. The max­i­mum amount depends on their income and assets.

Our goal is to be below the usu­al fees for invest­ment funds. We achieve this by work­ing on a plat­form basis and automat­ing and opti­miz­ing com­plex, expen­sive and inef­fi­cient process­es through the use of var­i­ous tech­nolo­gies. We also reduce the num­ber of inter­me­di­aries, espe­cial­ly when trad­ing on the sec­ondary mar­ket. The fees usu­al­ly include an issue sur­charge as well as a prof­it share — more infor­ma­tion can be found on the detail page of the respec­tive invest­ment.

Two Bavar­i­an com­pa­nies are behind Wat­ti­fy: Steag Solar Ener­gy Solu­tions GmbH (SENS) from Würzburg and YOU­KI GmbH from Amberg. This guar­an­tees investors and issuers com­pli­ance with the high­est stan­dards and reg­u­la­tions. In addi­tion, Wat­ti­fy has decades of expe­ri­ence in solar ener­gy through SENS. And as part of Steag, one of the largest ener­gy providers in Ger­many, SENS has become one of the largest EPCs in Europe.

It’s sim­ple! Down­load the Wat­ti­fy app from the store of your choice and cre­ate an account and wal­let. Then choose a project and set the invest­ment amount. After you deposit this amount, you will receive dai­ly pro rata Yield Tokens on your wal­let once the project is real­ized. These rep­re­sent the income from your invest­ment and can be paid out pro rata 1:1 in €. At the end of the project peri­od, you will of course receive your invest­ment amount back.

We strive for max­i­mum secu­ri­ty and inde­pen­dence. There­fore, the only log­i­cal con­se­quence is a blockchain as the tech­no­log­i­cal basis. We imple­ment smart meter gate­ways on each asset and con­nect them to a car­bon neu­tral blockchain. This enables the liq­ue­fac­tion of the project in the form of tokens (asset & return) and a decen­tral­ized dis­tri­b­u­tion to investors, depend­ing on the amount invest­ed. The Wat­ti­fy app is the direct link between investors and your project.

As soon as a project is com­plet­ed and in oper­a­tion and ener­gy is pro­duced, each investor receives a dai­ly dis­tri­b­u­tion of the gen­er­at­ed ener­gy in the form of yield tokens. They can dis­trib­ute these 1:1 in €. At the end of the respec­tive min­i­mum term, investors receive their invest­ment (asset tokens) back.

1st phase: Invest­ment
-> Invest­ed sum = stored as asset token

2nd phase: Oper­a­tion
-> Gen­er­a­tion of return on ener­gy pro­duced = stored as a return token.
-> Pay­ing out the return on demand = dis­trib­ut­ing the yield token.

3rd phase: clos­ing
-> Repay­ment of invest­ed sum = dis­tri­b­u­tion of asset token.

We equip each project on Wat­ti­fy with smart tech­nol­o­gy at start­up. The tech­nol­o­gy allows us to con­tin­u­ous­ly record the ener­gy gen­er­at­ed on a car­bon neu­tral blockchain. This gives you and all oth­er investors a dai­ly return, depend­ing on the ener­gy gen­er­at­ed on the day — trans­par­ent, decen­tral­ized and secure.

Financ­ing of a sus­tain­able ener­gy project

To pub­lish your project in Wat­ti­fy, tech­ni­cal, legal and finan­cial val­i­da­tion is required.
You can send your project to hello@wattify.de and we will con­tact you.

Once all required doc­u­ments have been sub­mit­ted and approved by Wat­ti­fy, the project will be deposit­ed on the plat­form by Wat­ti­fy and acti­vat­ed at the desired time.

After suc­cess­ful fund­ing, we pro­vide all nec­es­sary infor­ma­tion for pro­cess­ing. This is of course done in com­pli­ance with data pro­tec­tion laws.

After suc­cess­ful fund­ing, we pro­vide the col­lect­ed amount on the date com­mu­ni­cat­ed in advance.

A fee is charged for the estab­lish­ment and imple­men­ta­tion of each project. This fee depends on the fund­ing amount of the respec­tive project.
