EPS 030 - Ziyen Energy and Green Bitcoin Mining in Colorado
Ziyen Energy has acquired a 35-year Surface Use Lease for Renewable Energy production and Green Bitcoin Mining located in Mount Blanc Valley Ranches, Alamosa County, Colorado.   The U.S. is now the second-biggest bitcoin mining destination on the planet, accounting for nearly 17% of all the world’s bitcoin miners, which is an increase of 151% in the last year. However, there is a major environmental concern, as Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies require large amounts of energy to operate, due to the computations needed for bitcoin mining. Currently, estimates, the Bitcoin network uses as much energy in one year as the country of Argentina.   Click for full article below  https://thetokenizer.io/2021/08/25/ziyen-energy-tokenized-fund-acquires-solar-energy-lease-in-colorado-for-green-bitcoin-mining/ #blockchain #bitcoin #energy

EPS 026 - Bitcoin Crash, Elon Musk's Influence and Crypto CO2
Bitcoin crashed from a record high of over $64,000 by approximately 50% and is trading between $36,000 - $39,000, but what were the factors behind the crash.   In this episode of Boom! It's on the Blockchain we discuss multiple reasons why this happening including;    *Chinese regulators announced that they were banning banks and payment firms from using cryptocurrencies.  *Tesla founder Elon Musk suspended plans to allow customers pay in bitcoin for his electric cars.  Plus a number of confusing Elon Musk tweets to his millions of followers who is seen as a staunch supporter of cryptocurrencies.  *At current rates, such bitcoin "mining" devours about the same amount of energy annually as the Netherlands did in 2019, data from the University of Cambridge and the International Energy Agency shows.   For daily news updates visit http://www.energytokens.io

EPS 024 - Vertical Wind Turbines, Energy Tokens Pitch Deck and Caitlyn Jenner for Governor of California
In the latest episode of Boom! It's on the blockchain we discuss vertical wind turbines, energy tokens pitch deck and Caitlyn Jenner for Governor of California. A research team from the School of Engineering, Computing and Mathematics (ECM) at Oxford Brookes led by Professor Iakovos Tzanakis conducted an in-depth study using more than 11,500 hours of computer simulation to show that wind farms can perform more efficiently by substituting the traditional propeller-type Horizontal Axis Wind Turbines (HAWTs), for compact Vertical Axis Wind Turbines (VAWTs). ​​​​​​​​​ Prior to Energy Tokens (i) direct investments in energy producing assets have been made exclusively through negotiated private transactions through parties in direct and personal contact with one another, (ii) the transfer of even the smallest interests in energy producing assets have required negotiated contracts and physical document filings in antiquated local land registries and (iii) the information to support making and monitoring such investments is not readily available to owners and other stakeholders or preserved in a complete and unalterable form for the life of the project and beyond. ​​​​​​​​​ These limitations (i) add significant cost and redundancies to the purchase, sale and monitoring of energy assets, (ii) cut-off access to this asset class to global retail and institutional investors who are not energy industry participants, and (iii) destroy opportunities for liquidity by holders of non-controlling interests in energy producing assets. The current state of affairs has remained unchanged for over 100 years, resulting in a persistent lack of liquidity for current owners and a lack of opportunity for prospective investors. ​​​​​​​​​ The Energy Tokens platform has been developed to address these inherent problems by democratizing energy investment opportunities, creating liquidity for illiquid energy investments, and facilitating better access to capital for energy development projects. ​​​​​​​​​ Arnold Schwarzenegger is sharing some words of advice for Caitlyn Jenner, days after she announced that she is running to become the next governor of California. ​​​​​​​​​ Schwarzenegger added that whoever emerges as the governor from the upcoming recall vote — whether it's incumbent Gavin Newsom or a challenger — would have to implement changes to "straighten out all the mess we're in right now." ​​​​​​​​​ Visit http://www.ziyen.com​​​​​​ for more information about Ziyen Energy ​​​​​​​​​ Visit http://www.energytokens.io​​​​ to learn more about tokenizing energy ​​​​​​​​​ Learn More - Financial White Paper ​​​​​​​​​ The groundbreaking work of Ziyen Energy and the development of ZiyenCoin, an asset backed blockchain energy token, has been the subject of an in-depth analysis by leading Professors and Researchers from Columbia University, University of Florida and University of Michigan.

018 - Understanding Asset Backed Security Tokens
In this episode on BOOM! It's on the Blockchain, Alastair Caithness, Dave Rogers & the 'Shep', discuss the difference between Asset Back Security Tokens and bitcoin.  Blockchain is the technology that enables the existence of cryptocurrency. Bitcoin is the name of the best-known cryptocurrency, the one for which blockchain technology was invented, and we discuss how the technology has evolved for asset backed security tokens Other key topic covered in the latest podcast is about the Kraken Bank, headquartered in Cheyenne, Wyoming. Kraken Bank is the first digital asset company in U.S. history to receive a bank charter recognized under federal and state law, and will be the first regulated, U.S. bank to provide comprehensive deposit-taking, custody and fiduciary services for digital assets. More Information about Asset Tokenization and Ziyen Energy Ziyen Energy has created Energy Tokens a robust end-to-end solution to enable the efficient ownership and trading of direct interests in energy producing assets, including oil and gas, solar and wind. In so doing, Ziyen Energy believes it will completely transform the mechanisms by which these valuable assets may be acquired, held and transferred Prior to Energy Tokens direct investments in energy producing assets have been made exclusively through negotiated private transactions through parties in direct and personal contact with one another, the transfer of even the smallest interests in energy producing assets have required negotiated contracts and physical document filings in antiquated local land registries and the information to support making and monitoring such investments is not readily available to owners and other stakeholders or preserved in a complete and unalterable form for the life of the project and beyond.

006 - David Greenberg Discusses OPEC, the Potential of Renewable Energy Projects and the Blockchain and Trading Energy Tokens
In the latest installment of  Ziyen Energy’s Podcast, BOOM! It’s on the Blockchain, ZIYEN Chairman, David Greenberg, discusses the complex matrix that makes up the global oil market, Saudi Arabia’s key role in OPEC, the Organization for Petroleum Exporting Nations, in addition to the the role renewable energy will play in the next ten years.  With the demand for oil reaching 92 million barrels a day, and Saudi Arabia and OPEC capable of supplying approximately 40 percent of this demand, it has meant Saudi Arabia has dominated the market space. However, this is changing with the increase in domestic production in the US. David also discussed the recent drone attacks in Saudi Arabia and how in the past would have disrupted the entire global market, yet, luckily disrupted only 5% of the oil market. This is largely due to the rise in the output of domestic crude which has increased by 150% and gas output increasing 60%. Oil, however, is more easily transportable and sold on a larger and broader scale on the international market with linked prices. However, it is important to remember that for oil consuming nations, events such as the drone attacks can have far-reaching effects on their supply. Lastly, David discusses the opportunity for Trading Energy Trading.  Where we have collaborated and created a method for tokenizing the financial assets of oil and energy projects on the blockchain.

Starting his career as a crude oil and gold pit trader, David rose to become a member of the following NYMEX committees: Corporate Governance, Marketing, Facilities, Building Security, Local Advisory, Electronic Trading Advisory, International Expansion Advisory and, NYMEX Finance Committee. David was a board member during the most successful IPO in U.S. history, in which the growth valuation for the NYMEX IPO went from $800 million to $12 billion. After the September 11th terrorist attacks, David was part of the September 11, 2001 NYMEX Business Recovery Board, in which he helped lead a team that effectively reinstated the framework for oil trading and avoided a global economic collapse, all under direct instructions from the White House. David is an expert oil commodities commentator for CNBC, CNN, Fox News and has lectured at the West Point, Columbia University, Syracuse University and more. As a seasoned and experienced financial global market expert, he was part of the launch of the Dubai Mercantile Exchange, a subsidiary of NYMEX.

David Greenberg adds: “Alastair’s vision for a more liquid and streamlined oil industry immediately grabbed my attention because I have had the luxury to see historical seismic shifts in the oil market. The way Ziyen Inc. intends to tokenize oil is one of those promising shifts that we cannot ignore.

003 - Interview with Mark Waddleton, Supply Chain Advisor for Banyan Risk Group, to discuss Trust in Blockchain Technology and How it will Impact the Supply Chain and the ways we conduct business
Trust in Blockchain Technology and How it will Impact the Supply Chain and the ways we conduct business. Alastair Caithness, Ziyen Inc. CEO interviewed Supply Chain Advisor for Banyan Risk Group, Mark Waddleton for the latest iteration of BOOM! It’s on the Blockchain, a series of conversations with blockchain experts who are leading the global narrative on the ways blockchain will undoubtedly change the way the world conducts business. This conversation honed in on a range of topics that dealt directly with the supply chain and how blockchain as an integration can make their overall operations more efficient. Mark Waddleton (Banyan Risk Group) added: “I’ve been in this space for the last 2-3 years. When you saw the parting of the seas (if you will) between bitcoin and the rails of blockchain, in my view [blockchain] is potentially as significant as the Dutch East India Company and what they did for the supply chain and moving goods back and forth from Europe to India. [Blockchain] will take a lot of the transaction friction out of the system, certainly if its done correctly and pursued with a level of thoroughness in order to help companies and their cascading supply chains and partnerships and share in the benefits.” Alastair Caithness, Ziyen Inc. CEO, “We are very excited to feature Mark on the latest episode of our new podcast. A leading thinker in the supply chain space, he offers practical solutions for businesses and relatable insight that places emphasis on evidence-based applications for blockchain technology that will encourage trust and security in this emerging technology.

In a podcast with Alastair Caithness, CEO of Ziyen Inc. an energy and technology company, and Adam Blumberg, co-founder of Interaxis.io  and ET Consulting-- which specializes in helping companies utilize Blockchain and Decentralized Ledger Technologies--engaged in a discussion which posed broad and obvious questions such as “why should people care about the blockchain,” and explored this topic by using comparisons related to the emergence of the internet over 30-years ago and how the blockchain is in actuality the definition of a more practicable version of the internet: “a better, more improved, transparent and immutable version of what we have now...it is pervasive and it will be the underpinning of everything we do,” stated Adam Blumberg. Alastair Caithness adds: “Adam has provided commentary on how Blockchain technology is the manifestation of a more streamlined and transparent solution to the inefficiencies that have plagued the oil and gas industry for hundreds of years. This technology will not only allow operators to update and manage data, supply chains, people in much more systematic and cost-effective methods, it will also create vast potentials for liquidity in a previously illiquid market when oil assets are tokenized.” For more information about ZiyenCoin and Ziyen Inc. please visit our website www.ziyen.com Click here to follow the progress and Issuance of ZiyenCoin on the Ethereum Blockchain
