Welcome to Episode 97 of SunCast!

Today on SunCast, we get to dig into one of the topics I've featured on the Hot or Hype segment often - Blockchain and Energy.

Nick Gogerty is the founder of the first cryptocurrency specifically targeted for Solar Power asset owners. Nick is also a specialist in emerging technology, economics and behavior, and has over 20 years of experience in fintech, Blockchain, forex and innovation. He's an Advisor to the World's largest institutions: like hedge funds, banks, G20,  Prime Minister's, the UN, and the list goes on. 

The topic of blockchain and energy is an often confusing one, and I wanted to go directly to the source to get some answers to my most burning questions, so, tune in to hear:

  • How valuing currency globally applies to cryptocurrency 

  • The difference between a credit bubble and an asset bubble, and why that matters for Crypto analysis 

  • Macro applications of blockchain, underlying theory of currency and how Nick and his cofounder decided to focus on Solar 

  • How SolarCoin is structured from staking claims to proof of stake, including who's buying and using SolarCoin and why it matters.
