The Growing Energy Requirements of Bitcoin and Cryptocurrencies
Investors Via E-Cat World: If you read news about finance these days, it is impossible to miss the story of the massive run-up in value of Bitcoin over the last year. Its value has rise over 1000 per cent since the beginning of the year, and some people who have owned Bitcoin since its early creation have become multimillionaires.

There is a huge amount of Bitcoin related news coverage these days, mostly about its current value, and how much money some investors have made so far and whether the bubble is about to burst, but in the midst of the current Bitcoin frenzy one thing that stands out is the discussion about the enormous amount of energy that is required to sustain the system. Here are a few quotes from one recently published article on Grist:

LPP Fusion raising $1 million via equity crowdfunding
Investors Via NextBigFuture.com site: LPPFusion has launched an equity crowdfunding campaign to raise $1 million to fund the next major stage of their research to develop a cheap, clean, safe and unlimited source of energy. The campaign, which went live at Noon EST, Nov. 9 on the leading crowdfunding website Wefunder, is the first time that shares in LPPFusion will be available to all investors. In previous equity rounds, sales of shares in the US were limited to accredited investors—those with more than $1 million in assets or $200,000 in annual income. However, under new SEC rules approved last year, through the crowdfunding campaign, all investors, accredited and non-accredited, US and non-US, will be able to buy shares. A previous crowdfunding effort by LPPFusion in 2014 on the Indiegogo website raised $180,000 in donations, before the new rule allowed equity (share) crowdfunding.

To The Stars Academy of Arts & Science
Investors From the website: The public interest in the outer edges of science and the understanding of phenomena has always been suffocated by mainstream ideology and bureaucratic constraint.

We believe there are transformative discoveries within our reach that will revolutionize the human experience, but they can only be accomplished through the unrestricted support of breakthrough research, discovery and innovation.

To The Stars Academy of Arts & Science has mobilized a team of the most experienced, connected and passionately curious minds from the US intelligence community, including the CIA and Department of Defense that have been operating under the shadows of top-secrecy for decades.

Industrial Heat Expands LENR Research, Boeing Rossi Connection Claimed
Investors Via http://energycatalyzer3.com/: Industrial Heat LLC is involved in at least 12 low energy nuclear reactions (LENR) research efforts. Nor is the Raleigh, North Carolina, – based company letting its ongoing lawsuit with ecat inventor Andrea Rossi slow it down.

Industrial Heat has intensified investment in six processes; and scaled back its’ involvement in another six, owner Tom Darden said in an interview with The Triangle Business Journal. The Journal claimed that research in LENR is still going on at Raleigh’s Triangle Industrial Park.

Unfortunately none of the LENR companies or processes that Darden mentioned were identified. Darden, the CEO of hedge fund, Cherokee Investment Partners, said he feels increasingly good about cold fusion research.

$20 Million+ XPrize for Abundant Clean Energy Technologies
Investors Via e-catworld.com: Announcing the Development of $20 Million+ XPrize for Abundant Clean Energy Technologies (David Niebauer)

The future of humanity requires a new primary energy generation technology that is clean, abundant, safe, and affordable. Renewables such as solar PV and wind do not provide the energy density or reliability necessary for a true energy transformation. We have relied on the oldest technology known to man – the burning of fossil fuels – for far too long. It is time to aggressively expand our search.

I am convinced that we are on the cusp of uncovering new primary sources of energy that will radically transform our world. I am on a mission to discover and promote these new technologies. Together with my partners, I have executed an agreement with the X-Prize Foundation to develop a Prize to stimulate innovation, investment and public awareness.

Bill Gates Launches $1 Billion Breakthrough Energy Investment Fund
Investors Via Forbes.com: by Kerry A. Dolan (Forbes Staff): Billionaire philanthropist and investor Bill Gates is launching a $1 billion fund, called Breakthrough Energy Ventures, to invest in new forms of clean energy. Gates has gathered a group of like-minded investors, including Silicon Valley venture capitalists John Doerr and Vinod Khosla and former hedge manager John Arnold, to join him in the fund.

In a post on his Gates Notes blog, Gates said the fund will invest in “scientific breakthroughs that have the potential to deliver cheap and reliable clean energy to the world.”

“We need affordable and reliable energy that doesn’t emit greenhouse gas to power the future—and to get it, we need a different model for investing in good ideas and moving them from the lab to the market,” Gates said in his post.

Note: Anything that leads to cheap, clean, reliable energy we’re open-minded to", says Gates. If indeed "anything" is on the table, to avoid wasting much of that billion on "marginal" impact technologies (many with strong lobby from vested interest trying to "drag" the status-quo that keeps them in control), I would suggest Mr. Gates to start by setting up a not-for-profit organization with the only mission to to carry out independent, objective, unbiased and widely accepted scientific validation of "private research" in the field of new energy technologies -- research that the present scientific community and media would otherwise consider an unacceptable departure from the conventional thinking. I have proposed the Extreme Science Foundation (XSF) in 2008, and it may still provide some good ideas to Mr. Gates. Please see my Note (and links) here (the Breakthrough Energy Coalition announcement last year). [Vlad]

The Institute for Venture Science (IVS)
Investors Funding Promising Ideas that Challenge Conventional Thinking

The Institute for Venture Science (IVS) will fund scientific inquiries into high-risk/high-reward theses. By virtue of their break with ideas that may have become more tradition than forward looking concepts, these fresh theses may lead to fundamental breakthroughs in understanding. The IVS will identify the most promising ideas that challenge prevailing paradigms; for each selected thesis it will simultaneously fund multiple research teams working independently in various nations around the world.

An unconventional idea independently pursued by a dozen laboratories that obtain mutually compatible results cannot be ignored. This means that proposed paradigms and prevailing paradigms can compete on equal footing.

Documentary: The Breakthrough in Renewable Energy (VPRO Backlight Video)
Investors Via e-catworld.com: The following documentary video from the Dutch public broadcasting agency VPRO provides an interesting perspective about the implications of the falling price of wind and solar energy. The thesis of the video is that now the unsubsidized cost of solar and wind energy is cheaper than fossil fuels, and having reached this crossover point, the financial equation has changed with major investment now flowing into the renewable energy sector.

Breakthrough Energy Coalition to Invest in Zero-Carbon Energy Technologies
Investors PRNewswire reports: Bill Gates-led private sector effort to collaborate with public sector's Mission Innovation initiative

PARIS, Nov. 29, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The Breakthrough Energy Coalition, which launched today in Paris, is a global group of private investors that will take the risks that allow early-stage energy companies to get innovation out of the lab and into the marketplace. The group will invest in companies that have the best chance to make reliable zero-carbon energy available to everyone at an affordable price. The Breakthrough Energy Coalition is made up of more than 25 investors from 10 countries. It is launching in conjunction with Mission Innovation, an international effort of more than 15 governments to double their commitments to early-stage energy research and development in order to discover and invent the technologies that these investors can develop into scalable, marketable solutions for our future global energy mix. To learn more, visit www.breakthroughenergycoalition.com.

Note: Einstein well said: "No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it." I'm still not entirely clear what these smart and very rich ladies and gentlemen understand by "breakthrough" or "transformational" clean energy technologies!? We need a quantum-leap clean energy Revolution (not just evolution) to survive, and we should be supporting researchers and inventors (all people actually) to go beyond what they think to be possible (such as this site does for many years). Well, if non-conventional energy research and technologies (that the present scientific community and media would otherwise consider an unacceptable departure from the conventional thinking) is on their radar, I urge them to take a look at my 2008 proposal for the Extreme Science Foundation (XSF and XS-NRG prize) concept and see if they can draw some valuable ideas from that honest attempt to do the right thing before it is too late. Please start with last year's summary posts: "Why support ZPEnergy and Xtreme Science Foundation? (Part One, Two and Three - use search for "XSF" for other relevant posts and comments on the subject). May The Force be with you Breakthrough Energy Coalition! - Vlad

The New Energy Revolution Gets Down to Business
Investors Welcome! This is LENR-Cities. LENR-Cities applies the sharing economy model to market development with a focus on disruptive technologies.

Manifesto - Our Vision

Our society needs new technologies that can supply abundant, cheap, clean energy. Only then can we restore and sustainably use the basic resources of our home, our “Planet A”.

LENR is the best candidate. Research into LENR (Low Energy Nanoscale Reactions) has been ongoing since 1989 and it is now a validated phenomenon at Technology Readiness Level 4.  Our work with the LENR community has shown that in addition to energy, this field of science and technology holds potential for activities such as nuclear waste mitigation, transmutation, superconductivity, hydrogen production, direct production of electricity and others. We are using the umbrella term LENR as a reference to this field. LENR is deeply linked to materials science and is a major area of investment at the forefront of nanoscience and nanotechnology research.

Note: Yes, the global challenge is nothing less than to develop a new economy. But, if we can't change first the modern growth society which relies on an ever-accelerating cycle of production, consumption and throw away (see "planned obsolescence"), cheap/free energy may just be the kiss of death for the future humans on this "Planet A".

Gates Looks at LENRs as Future Energy Source
Investors Nov. 14, 2014 – By Steven B. Krivit – (via NewEnergyTimes.net)

Bill Gates, pioneer in the digital world, is exploring low-energy nuclear reactions (LENRs), the frontier of energy research.

On Wednesday, he visited a small laboratory on the sprawling campus of a government lab in Frascati, just outside of Rome, Italy. The lab is one of several large ones under the Italian National Agency for New Technologies, Energy and the Environment.

While at ENEA-Frascati, Gates listened to a lecture by ENEA scientist Vittorio Violante and observed LENR experiments in his lab. Gates was there with Lowell Wood, a physicist who once worked with Edward Teller at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. Wood is now a professor of physics at the University of Houston.

Risky business: A study of physics entrepreneurship
Investors From Physicstoday.org: Physicists who work at startup companies create and improve marketable technologies. But their goals are not always aligned with those of the funders who pay the bills.

...Our findings describe the value of physics startups to high-tech innovation, startup funding structures, the role of academic technology transfer programs, and regional differences among startup clusters. In addition, we have identified some factors that may be indicators of success or failure; some mistakes to watch out for are summarized in the box on page 44...

New Energy Systems Trust (NEST) Website Launched
Investors From PESWiki.com: Take a look over at www.EnergyNEST.org where we've launched our new website, whose slogan is "Networking to bring the best exotic free energy technologies to market." Two additional free energy projects announced. Join in to help bring these and many others forward to empower all Earthlings. (PESN; May 11, 2012)
The NEST mission statement reads: The New Energy Systems Trust is an association for matching up the best exotic free energy technologies, business professional services, financing, licensees, and customers (which includes everyone). We are preemptively setting up a network to help facilitate the rapid emergence into the marketplace of breakthrough, affordable, clean energy technologies. The emergence of these devices can empower the individual, remove our dependence on oil and other polluting energy sources and corrupt political systems, create jobs, and inspire hope for a peaceful, sustainable future in which we can thrive in harmony with the earth.

Note: [Vlad]: Another classic example of "putting the horse before the cart". Sterling Allan continues to "count one's chickens before they are hatched", and sell "futures" on them whenever possible. What does it take to realize that proper scientific validation is the "sine qua non " for breakthrough energy technologies (a.k.a exotic free energy) to emerge and be widely accepted (marketable) to make a difference? I proposed the Extreme Science Foundation (XSF) years ago to the NEC (also led by Allan) but to no avail, since it was designed to protect the public against false claims (fraudulent or not) but not to make money out of inventors' intelligence, ingenuity, perseverance and hard work.
