Tokenization is the next step in the evolution of keeping up with the latest in fintech, and one of the biggest markets that can reap the benefits of blockchain technology is in the oil and gas sector. In this podcast, Ziyen’s CEO Alastair Caithness and Chairman David Greenberg explain how they are tokenizing the gas and oil industry on a project by project basis and (most importantly) providing a method of liquidity for investors, along with a means of developing renewable energy projects such as solar and wind farms. After listening to this podcast, you may never look at oil and gas in the same light again!
When people talk about cryptocurrencies, they usually think “bitcoin”, but Security Token Offerings (STOs) are a whole different ballgame. When you have a tokenization deal backed by an actual asset (such as oil and gas), you are using blockchain technology in its highest form. Then add the fact that issuing companies must comply with all US and SEC investment guidelines, the deal looks so much better than the ICO (initial coin offerings) that were such early industry darlings, yet most failed miserably. In this podcast, both Mr. Greenberg and Mr. Caithness talk about what exactly Ziyen Coin is, their vision for the future, and how this all relates to even bigger possibilities with solar and wind farms that makes their vision not only tremendously interesting, but also with the potential for great profits in the not-so-distant future!
