Swytch recenlty announced its public token sale which began last month. Swytch is a blockchain-based clean energy solution that tracks, verifies and rewards consumers, companies and non-government organizations that reduce CO2 emissions. Commercial generators of renewable energy can get started with Swytch immediately and no additional hardware is required.
Swytch is currently running a successful pilot in Germany with hundreds of assets representing over 1.5GW of energy capacity.
“The time is now to make a real impact in the global renewable energy space,” noted Evan Caron, founding partner and managing director of Swytch. “We have been very busy securing partnerships, onboarding advisors and testing our technology over the past few months in order to position the project for long-term success.”
What makes the project unique is that Swytch dynamically awards tokens based on the amount of carbon offset estimates to any individual or organization who chooses to partake in the effort to reduce emissions, including consumers, corporations and non-governmental organizations.
Swytch’s goals include creating a more efficient and truly global carbon market, rewarding and empowering individuals and companies to participate in eco-friendly actions and generating valuable data to drive policies and decisions. Swytch also aims to incentivize investments in renewables, such as where CO2 emissions are high or power generation is low. By rewarding tokens based on how much CO2 emissions are reduced, Swytch encourages capital to behave more efficiently.
Swytch is founded by Evan Caron, former Wall Street energy trader, Dr. John Clippinger, MIT research scientist and John Redpath, seasoned energy expert. In addition, Swytch has world-class advisors including: Dr. Steve Waterhouse, experienced blockchain investor, Tony Seba, Stanford University clean energy academic and Steve Jurvetson, original Tesla and SpaceX investor. The token sale will open to public on June 12th at a cost of $.50 USD per token
