Why has there been such an upswing in interest in cryptocurrencies? It’s probably because there have been many success stories recently of people who have invested in them with great success. But it’s not as simple as just saying you want to invest in any type of currency. There are many factors to consider, including how to get started, what to look for, how to set up an e-wallet to hold these investments, how they are platformed, how they’re developed, how they are valued, and how to use crypto as a crowdfunding vehicle, such as the strategy Mr. Caithness is using with his Ziyen Coin token opportunity specifically targeted to the Oil and Gas industry.

Alastair has already been featured on a number of Mapable USA podcasts, but him detailing a step by step guide and explanation on everything you need to do to invest in his Ziyen tokens or any other cryptocurrency and/or Security Token Offering for that matter makes this certainly one of his “must listen” episodes! And yes, many of the crypto portals you can sign up with have made the liquidity aspect quite attractive, so you’re not trapped if you want to sell. There is no need to attend an Ivy League school for a solid education in blockchain, tokenization, and crypto. This podcast will do that all for you in less than an hour!

ABOUT OUR GUEST: Alastair Caithness

Alastair CaithnessAlastair Caithness based out of San Diego is a recognized leader in the development of asset-backed, blockchain tokens. Originally from Scotland, Caithness is CEO of Ziyen Energy, a technology-driven company focused on the tokenization of energy infrastructure assets. Ziyen Energy currently owns interests in various energy assets throughout the United States. Under Caithness leadership, in 2019 Ziyen Energy launched ZiyenCoin, an energy infrastructure token utilizing blockchain technology as a catalyst to facilitate the transition in energy from carbon-based fuels to renewable energy.

In 2020 Caithness was appointed as Chief Blockchain Policy Advisor for the Libertarian Party to develop a future economy based on digital assets through tokenization of the government’s assets/substantial resources into a usable currency which will be distributed to all American citizens. This distribution will level the economic playing field for all Americans and will serve as a form of reparations and basic income for US citizens who have struggled to achieve economic liberty. Caithness monetary policy is referred to as “Tokenized Asset Distributions” not “Universal Basic Income”, with the concept of developing a future crypto-based economy, which he believes could “finance a level of free healthcare, free education, and a form of basic income” at a scale that has never before been seen.
