Sun Exchange, a blockchain-based solar micro-leasing marketplace, has appointed Max Keiser and Stacy Herbert known for commandeering successful ventures such as the Keiser Report and Heisenberg Capital to help drive sustainability and equitable distribution of sustainable energy.
Other key Sun Exchange advisors include David Orban, a pioneering crypto investor and Founder and Managing Partner of Network Society Ventures; Danny Kennedy, Managing Director of the California Clean Energy Fund; and Michael Terpin, cryptocurrency mogul and CEO of Transform Group.
Sun Exchange has won global recognition for its disruptive approach to solar finance, built around a cryptocurrency based micro-leasing model. The company won the Mondato Award for Social Impact in Sub Saharan Africa and has been named the best Blockchain Business in Africa at the African Fintech Awards for the past two years running.
The United Nations Development Program also recently selected Sun Exchange to pilot blockchain-based solar finance in Moldova. Joining the Sun Exchange advisory board underscores Keiser and Herbert’s dedication to driving blockchain for sustainable innovation and optimizing renewable energy. Their aim is to support efforts for Sun Exchange to expand to its greatest potential.
“The decentralized and distributed nature of the Sun Exchange platform and service perfectly compliments Heisenberg Capital’s investment philosophy to liberate the world from the centralized legacy cartels currently strangling the global economy, whether in the energy sector or the banking industry,” said Stacy Herbert, CEO, Heisenberg Capital and co-host of the Keiser Report.
“Heisenberg Capital recognized early on that crypto mining would come to rely on solar energy,” said Max Keiser, Founder & CIO, Heisenberg Capital and host of the Keiser Report. “We are committed to supporting renewable energy and looking to support projects in the sector as a natural extension of the benefits of blockchain technology. In the capacity of advisory, HC hopes to continue to build awareness of Sun Exchange and the role renewables play in moving economies forward sustainably and equitably.”
Sun Exchange, which initially launched on Keiser’s cryptocurrency-based crowdfunding platform, StartJoin, is now launching its own token, SUNEX, in a pre-sale that ends on June 1, and so far they’ve raised over USD 1.1 million, exceeding an initial soft cap of USD 1M.
“The Sun Exchange was revealed to the world through StartJoin in early 2016, and it is from there we got our first crypto purchases of our buy-to-lease solar cells. Like users of that platform, we believe in using crypto for good and building a new and fairer economy. It is exciting to have Stacy and Max now onboard as advisors as we enter this critical growth phase and launch our groundbreaking SUNEX Network Token,” said Abraham Cambridge, CEO, Sun Exchange.
