OIX (Online Industrial Exchange), which forms part of the much larger Themis Ecosystem, will soon open its doors. The launch will enable all participants to interact directly with breakthrough technologies, help change industries, reduce the global warming CO2 gas, and reduce personal carbon footprint without changing their lifestyles.
The innovative, future-oriented OIX brings a lot of innovations
The Online Industrial Exchange is intended to connect green, high-added value tech industries with supporters without intermediaries.
For a high-tech industry – also called a “driver” – to be accepted into the Themis Ecosystem and placed on OIX, it must meet strict criteria. It must already be developed and profitable. The end product that the technology produces must be in demand now and at least for several decades. The technology must be innovative. It must solve a significant problem in one of the key areas: transport, waste, energy, health, IT, housing, and similar. It also must be green and create a negative CO2 footprint.
E-voucher named Industrial Token
OIX uses an electronic voucher (e-voucher) as a trading unit. It is called Industrial Token or iTo. It consists of two components. One part of the e-voucher forms the product produced by advanced technology, and the other part is the proportional part of the CO2 reduction generated in the product manufacturing process.
Supporters can participate in projects by buying Industrial Tokens issued by the high-tech company they want to support. But the story doesn’t end here. They not only support the innovative project and help to reduce CO2 along the way. They also push the rest of the industry to follow and reshape.
Doing so step by step, industry by industry, the outcome aiming to help and improve a society’s needs and problems will be impressive.
The difference between OIX and other exchanges
This approach is entirely different from the recent experience of buying stocks or other securities. An investor buys, for example, a stock listed on the stock exchange. Many investors don’t care whether technology supports or destroys the planet.
The investor doesn’t demand the company to reduce CO2 gas. They also don’t care if a negative CO2 package in the stock ownership reduces personal or family carbon footprint. It is hard to admit, but profit is the only buying motivator in most cases.
Therefore, investors often support companies that are not necessarily aligned with modern society’s moral and ethical principles. IPO is not conditioned by technological superiority or strict environmental criteria. In addition, a stockholder may end up with a worthless security whose price has fallen dramatically.
With iTos, this kind of scenario cannot happen. Each high-tech company commits to two things before getting a green light.
First, the company must allocate 30% of net profit annually to buy back iTos from holders.
Second, the company is obliged to scale its technology to new markets. The more the business grows, the more products it creates and, consequently, more turnover and higher profits.
The profit is attributed to an upfront defined number of iTos. So, with every expansion or increase in production, the price of iTo also increases. In addition, the project also creates more CO2 negative footprint through the expansion, which also causes the iTo price to rise.
There will be three phases of OIX operation. The first phase is reserved for the early participants. Larger investors with their clients will participate in the second phase. In the third phase, OIX will be available to the free market.
How an iTo’s and OIX market caps are created
Within the Themis Ecosystem’s environment, OIX represents an asset exchange hub. It has predetermined regulations and rules to enable iTo’s a fluid, step-by-step implementation.
In the beginning, each company will determine the price of its iTos and volume based on ten and twenty-five years of micro- and macro-economy plans. In the so-called secondary market, ruled by early supporters, the initial price of iTo is determined. Buying and selling iTos becomes a practical testing process through which the iTo’s price is fixed before it arrives on OIX.
The whole volume of a certain iTos, and its predetermined market price, results in an iTo’s net market cap.
The market caps of different iTos will be added together, forming a total OIX net market cap. At the same time, the total amount of CO2 reduction will also be displayed.
Strategic approach and three stages of development
For more than three years, the team has been intensively studying and considering various data, not just the market’s needs for resources but geostrategic forecasts of military confrontations, climate change issues, etc.
It also researched general long-term challenges, problems, and solutions in various fields: pollution, energy, climatological forecasting, microbiological forecasting, and others.
The goal is to define today’s problems and detect the trend of changes in the decades.
According to the insights, the Themis Ecosystem multi-layered project will occur in three stages. In the first phase, going on already, the first their own two “drivers” will line up: the Biomass Ultima plant (wood waste-to-energy) and the Project Phoenix8 plant (hydrocarbon waste-to-energy).
These two projects are unique because they will be set up for the first time in Europe and serve as a model for expansion.
After this setup, the team will focus on connecting other already working projects that meet the strict Themis Ecosystem and OIX standards and are suitable for expansion to add them to the Themis Ecosystem and OIX.
Each project will have its own micro- and macroeconomic plan for the next ten and twenty-five years of development, with extremely realistic goals, based on a high level of the precautionary principle. So, every forecast contains many safety nets and factors.
That was the second stage. In the third stage, projects will expand altogether via synchronized, simultaneous expansion to several locations, with the help of strategic partners in different countries.
This kind of expansion creates concentrated gains: higher output values, like more manufactured products, and a more significant positive impact on the environment in a shorter time.
The founder of Themis Ecosystem, Roberto Hroval, summarized the whole idea in a few sentences: “By inviting into Themis ecosystem only superior, tangible, and profitable technologies that reduce CO2 and solve global problems, we motivate projects to innovate and care for a cleaner environment. We force the industry to focus on long-term strategic goals. On the other hand, we allow supporters to participate in breakthrough technologies from the beginning, help clean CO2, and become personally and family CO2 negative. That’s a green deal for all.”
