An Exciting, New Acquisition by Roberto Hroval, PatentReal Corp., That Will Disrupt the Industry and Intelligently Contribute to the Greenhouse Gas Reduction
I admit! I am prone to technology and improvements in general. I like the achievements we gathered in the past hundreds of years in our education, social and health care, democracy, communications, transportation… and that we are doing some steps toward resolving some major environmental issues.
But every coin has two sides. If we want to get something, we need to give something else up. Is it even possible to harmonize those two without renouncing? To have the best of both worlds?
We came close to the definite answer; at least when comes to renewable energy and technological progress. Introducing: Online Industrial Exchange or OIX in short.
As a long-time environmental researcher and journalist, this story attracted me because it’s downright ingenious and inspirational for the future that follows.
Namely, I finally got straight answers to some extremely important questions about solving our global environmental problems. I got hope that this time something will really be done right, on a global level.
We see all around that new, simplified solutions disrupt common situations. One of the most important fields that is still waiting for major disruptor is the environment care and solutions for major problems: keeping nature clean, handling garbage, creating cheap energy, decreasing carbon footprint, and similar.
There were some good attempts to take it to a higher level–like recycling, photovoltaics, wind generators, etc.–but they are more of improvements than disruptors.
While the Kyoto agreement solves one part of the puzzle of reducing global warming, Roberto Hroval from PatentReal Corporation has designed a more advanced system that solves the essence of the environmental puzzle. A smart system for so-called “environmental coherence” was born – OIX or Online Industrial Exchange.
“THIS IS ALL WRONG… HOW DARE YOU!?”
Remember Greta Tunberg, a teen social phenomena and environmental activist? I have to admit, I shivered with a shock when on September 23, 2019, 16-year-old Greta, at U.N. The Climate Action Summit in New York, said:
“This is all wrong. I shouldn’t be up here. I should be back in school on the other side of the ocean. Yet you all come to us young people for hope. How dare you!”
Of course, we all want a cleaner future for us and our descendants. I also recycle myself, take care of my diet, buy renewable energy, and so on. But this is not enough. Somewhere in the past, we have digressed from the path. Now, we are to blame the generation of baby boomers for all accumulative damage.
The consumer society in a form of modern capitalism is, obviously, the best way to handle the western way of life at the moment. But consumerism has gone too far and the environment–and then everything else–is taking on the burden of consequences.
While I watch environmental heroes-to-be around the world in the quest for a better tomorrow–a carbon footprint neutral future, lowering the global temperature, and the like–I also look at other aspects. Well, quite often we don’t even know what exactly we would like.
ALL FOR THE GAIN … BUT WITHOUT THE PAIN, PLEASE!
“We want and demand less electricity consumption! Fewer cars! Less spending on a personal and global level” More alternative energy! Less pollution!” And so on.
I don’t believe anything will change drastically because of a simple reason: people don’t want to end consumerism. They just won’t give it up. It is, at the same time, the generator of capitalism and the global economy. This is, we must admit, what has elevated us to a drastically higher level of quality of life in the last hundred years. But, as they say, what has got us here won’t take us there.
So often we hear that Generation-X and millennials are more future-orientated, they spend less, they are smarter, more prudent. Will they save our future? Research shows just the opposite. They spend the most and don’t even bother with it. Consequently, they don’t solve the environmental problem. With their activities, they are not even close…
Are electric cars, windmills, and photovoltaics the solution to living safely and saving the planet? These could be minor contributors but let’s not forget the two main problems in alternative energy: energy storage and continuous supply. As it looks so far, we will not solve them for some time.
Do you know how much pollution and environmental damage is caused by just making the right battery packs for energy storage, aluminum production, tires, copper for powertrains, and similar?
No, we don’t know enough. I say we, the ones who represent the majority of the population. As a comprehensive report that covers all aspects and LCA analysis comparing between BEV (Battery Electrical Vehicle) and ICEV (Internal Combustion Engine Vehicle) reveals, the total cost of ownership over a 20-year vehicle lifetime is $68,492 US for the mid-size BEV model versus $47,676 US for an equivalent ICEV.
Aren’t these numbers confusing, to say at least? The solution is not as simple as we would like, so I do not blame the authorities who have to make a move under public pressure if they want to keep their jobs… albeit incorrectly.
No drastic solutions are emerging, and are not expected for the next few decades. I remain optimistic, though.
The following story gives hope and I think the solution is brilliant.
COULD AN ENVIRONMENTAL REVOLUTION BE A TECHNOLOGICAL EVOLUTION?
The case appealed to me because it solves two big, world-wide problems: what to do with waste and how to create cheap renewable energy. The project also proactively lowers the global carbon footprint. It is very lucrative, though. Also, anyone can financially participate and become an active advocate of a green future.
But let’s go back and identify the elephant in a room. What is our basic problem? It is not that we don’t want to change. Or, that we don’t feel the burden of guilt because we are not doing enough in this direction. Because we do. But we don’t want to give up on anything. We have strived for a simpler life and commodities – that have expanded beyond all boundaries.
Roberto Hroval insinuated that nothing will change unless the changes come with some personal benefit. Like, “The more I contribute to the environment…the more I am carbon neutral…the more passive income I receive.”
Hroval recently revealed the new way to reshape the renewable energy industry by designing a modern, transparent, long-term oriented, environment-friendly, and open-to-all platform. “It will serve as an extremely advanced technological basis for specially selected industrial projects,” he explained and announced that the name of the platform will be Online Industrial Exchange or OIX.
The first project on the platform will be Project PHOENIX8 (PP8), following with the AGE biomass Ultima plant, and then some others are coming, as well. They both transform waste–with advanced but green, and highly efficient technology–into sought-after products and drastically contribute to CO2 neutrality. They are both emissions-free and offer high added value.
A DIGITAL CONNECTION POINT OF THE FUTURE FOR A WIN-WIN SITUATION: THE OIX PLATFORM
Money drives the world, they say. Part of it flows into an existing commodity or stock exchanges. But these are not value-created entities. They are just intermediator between buyers and sellers.
They do not solve problems by overcoming key challenges nor they influence projects whatsoever. “Existing established platforms and systems should be modernized and more focused on the coherence of several factors and implications,” suggests Roberto Hroval, “this is why I established Online Industrial Exchange. It is a realistic approach, a unique smart system that ensures appropriate and global coherence between the environment, industry, economy, and product users.”
So what exactly is OIX? It is a global, digital exchange of raw materials or products produced by the industry of the future. The latter is run by a closed, CO2-negative system. It enables users to handle selected, useful products with high added value for profits. It also provides carbon neutrality for the users.
Participants–or users– of the OIX exchange sell and buy special industrial tokens or iTokens (iTs). These are designed the way to combine the market value of the product and the CO2 reduction contribution. These two values are combined into a real market value in the form of an industrial coupon or industrial token (iT).
The user will be able to constantly monitor what each iT contains. For example, one iT can contain: a market value of a product that iT represents (i.e. 2MWh of electricity), carbon emissions reduction (i.e. 1.719lbs/780kg), combined with the current value of iT according to market supply and demand. Demand can rise due to brand recognition, yearly report, business expansion, new partners or investors joining, and similar.
COHERENCE AND SUPERPOSITION ARE THE KEYS: SPEED-UP FORMULA, REDUCING GLOBAL WARMING, AND CHANGING THE WORLD WITH HIGH-TECH
The first special feature of the OIX platform is the constancy of iTokens. With each expansion of the project, the output–or amount of products–also increases proportionally. For example, the more electricity and CO2 neutrality are produced, the higher the price of iT is because the total number remains the same. Like, the founder of PP8 explained that Project PHOENIX8 has tendered 285 million iTs, and will stay the same all the time no matter the expansion of the project.
Each project’s company is also committed to allocating 30% of its net profit each year to the purchase of its own iTs, thus contributing to accelerating participation on OIX and maximizing “global cause-effect environmental coherence.”
Here is the second special feature. In the section “Global cause-effect environmental coherence overview”, you will also be able to monitor, in real-time, two factors: first, personal coherence factor in percentages (example: Your family current carbon neutrality is 88%) and second, global coherence community factor in quantity (example: Your current contribution to the global CO2 reduction is 1,719 lbs / 780 kg).
The structure of the extremely advanced and intelligent OIX system is designed for projects with different but highly sought-after products, for products with different technological solutions, and different niches and industries. This kind of diversification will allow a broader and more drastic contribution to reducing the global carbon footprint.
“Using the OIX platform and buying/selling iTs is very easy,” explained Hroval. “Anyone can buy and sell them at any time through the short-term auction system. Don’t worry, the platform does everything itself. The user simply submits his offer to sell X number of iTs, and the system completes the purchase to the first matching bidder.”
When the iT purchase is made, the system redirects the buyer’s money directly from his account to the seller’s bank or any other account, according to the seller’s predetermined parameters. The IOX system has nothing to do with the money and also does not charge a commission.
(I am a technology enthusiast and I will add here that the system of operation looks like quantum coherence and performs according to the principle of quantum superposition.)
PERSONAL PARTICIPATION IN TECHNOLOGICAL ADVANCED PROJECT
So how can somebody participate in such high-end technological projects? There are two possibilities. In the first phase–or pre-phase–a person with special added value (early participant) can contribute with special knowledge or with contributing money to help the project to its industrial expansion. (Think of crowdfunding, similar to Kickstarter.)
This way, the project gets enough specialized knowledge and also funds to get to a higher level. However, there is protection against abuse. Only projects that have passed the proof-of-work phase–and are already in the phase of industrial construction–can participate. So the participants are protected as they cannot fund the project that has not been verified in advance.
In exchange for participation, the founder delivers the goods that the project creates in the form of iTs. For example, if the factory produces electricity, a medical product, a computer program, a special service, etc., the participant won’t get these products but iTokens that represent goods.
After the project hits OIX and iTokens are available, everybody can participate.
HAVING A PROJECT LISTED ON THE OIX PLATFORM REQUIRES QUITE IMPRESSIVE STEPS
The main purpose of the OIX or Online Industrial Exchange is to list the most advanced industrial projects (AI, quantum computing, green alternative energy, green transportation, security, genetics, etc.) on one platform.
Projects should be extremely advanced and proven. Also, their innovative and technologically advanced operations must reduce the global carbon footprint in the long run.
Before listing on OIX, projects must perform a special LCA evaluation (Life Cycle Assessment) to determine how much their performance reduces the global presence of CO2. Besides, projects should demonstrate extremely future-oriented goals and meet the following criteria:
- Already operating system (proof of work) or, in some special occasions, “working proof of concept” that the project is ready for industrial exploitation and scaling;
- A long-term solution for the society’s existing problems;
- A capable team that knows how to perform the project and achieve goals timely;
- The high added value of the project and short ROI time (the investment must be repaid within max. three and a half years);
- Global expansion plan: at least 6x expansion within six years after the start of operation;
- Positive LCA (Life Cycle Assessment analysis – proof of how and how much the project reduces the amount of CO2);
- Transparent data for the value of iToken: number and price of output products, CO2 reduction data, etc.;
- A plan for the “Global Cause-Effect Environmental Coherence Overview”.
These rather demanding rules of participation in OIX are designed in such a way that there can be no abuse as we have been accustomed to in the past with many projects. Said another way, if the project is accepted by OIX, that is a safety factor by itself.
I will continue to monitor the development of OIX. And report on the progress, of course.
