Warning: Blockchain and the Web 3.0 is here – and like the internet in 1995, you better get used to it! And with it comes crowdfunding capability like never before. Energy Tokens (ET) is a complete solution trading platform using Blockchain enabled technology to acquire, hold and transfer direct interests in energy producing assets, including oil/gas and solar/wind. In order to understand what that means in real life, you have to understand the nuances and differences between blockchain technology itself and the various terms and applications it allows – especially with regards to tokens.

That is exactly what Mr. Caithness does on this podcast. From bitcoin, to stablecoins, to NFTs, to crypto, to the mining process in general, you’ll learn it all! What impact will tokenization have on the entire oil and gas industry? Well, for starters, it provides liquidity for investments, and everything flows from that. But the key point is adoption of this technology to everyday investors and issuers, and that takes time. (It will also help for you to join the Tokenization Nation to keep up with the latest on the topic).
