SLiC is an industrial-scale, $300 Million blockchain data center mining project, raised over four funding rounds, (2 private, and 2 public) that will result in over 60 state-of-the-art, modularly constructed, portable data centers facilities, deployed over a 3 year time period.
Its portable infrastructure is future proof and sustainable, beyond the blockchain mining space, as full on data center capability, with the ability to support AI, medical imaging, storage, and data intensive venture applications.
As a startup, it enters the market with a primary, built-in cost advantage, being able to produce results with less energy consumption than traditional data centers, due to specialized, 21st century, state of the art cooling technology presently in use by the US military. This gives it a competitive edge for investors looking to participate in the blockchain economy, or even in (non blockchain) data center services.
SLiC is globalizing a new carbon footprint reduction model which recaptures 90% of all its generated heat for conversion into other energy applications, with a particular focus on reducing costs in the agriculture sector supporting greenhouse operations. This makes SLiC an energy innovator, not an energy hog, and the company intends to be on fully renewable, off-grid energy by 2024, sponsoring a global prize for energy innovators to bring new solutions to its high energy needs. This kind of leading edge energy innovation stands to give SLiC high popular appeal with the public, and attract positive attention from sovereign jurisdictions looking for better ways to achieve energy, agriculture and climate change goals.
In an ordinary mining operation, the business model simply earns profits from its pursuit of blockchain discovery. That is what manufactures capital for the crypto economy. In SLiC’s case, it further “refines” that output, its crypto capital, as a professionally managed hedge fund and it appears to be the first company in the blockchain to offer it, in either general finance or in the blockchain, a hedging operation that operates by insured risk to capital on behalf of its investors.
These additional profits are generated through careful, risk-limited attention, from a select group of non-correlated professional traders and managers, to ensure that SLiC’s liquidation of its crypto capital is made at the most advantageous moment, on a rolling 30 day basis. All such hedging operations are risk insured by a specific, segregated finance pool providing SLiC investors all the upside profits without incurring any downside risk which are fully assumed by the company.
SLiC is further cementing its position as a systemic economy play by combining its digital asset and data real estate, with a foundation for new ideas that can expand the blockchain economy. Its first entry in this effort is a unique, fully sponsored global media campaign, #IsThereEnough led by Daniel Matalon, a Global Impact Partner of Drashta Ventures. Its message of economic inclusion, endorsed by academics, policy makers, and educators, both in and out of the blockchain space, is uniquely designed to encourage blockchain adoption generally, as a new tool of social economic justice.
Encouraging mass adoption is an ROI builder for SLiC as adoption is what will help spur a rise in prices of crypto currency. SLiC will be using its assets to help launch other similar efforts in media, education and seed investment.
The SLiC Team combines a passion for Blockchain, industry expertise and a proven record in finance, development, compliance, marketing, and licensing.
Crypto-currencies have faced a lot of criticism since Bitcoin first came on the scene 10 years ago. But for one group of people, they’re proving very useful.
US Securities and Exchanges Commission (SEC) senior advisor for digital assets, Valerie Szczepanik, says stablecoins could face an uphill battle against current securities laws.
The world’s most popular cryptocurrency, Bitcoin, is back in the driver seat and is taking the entire crypto market for a wild and exciting ride. It has been two fabulous days for those who have been ‘Hodling’ all ‘crypto winter’, but can Bitcoin continue this exhilarating momentum.
