In a world increasingly aware of the importance of sustainability, LumiShare stands as a bridge to a cleaner and more affordable future in terms of energy.


In this interview, Ben Sharon will take us through the details of how LumiShare uses blockchain technology to tokenize and slice real-world assets, highlighting its commitment to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, in particular Goal 7, which seeks to ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all.


In addition, we will explain how LumiPlace, LumiShare's asset-backed NFT Marketplace, will provide opportunities for investors and institutional alike to participate in renewable energy investing. In addition, we will discover how LumiPlace with its cutting-edge technologies will facilitate decision-making for growing investments in the sector.


Get ready to dive into the fascinating world of asset tokenization and sustainability with Ben Sharon, the visionary behind LumiShare, as we share his vision for a cleaner, more sustainable future in this issue of "TECH DREAMERS" in RUBIK TECH MAGAZINE.



In a nutshell, could you explain how LumiShare uses blockchain technology to tokenize and fractionalize real-world assets, starting with renewable energy assets?


LumiShare operates like a bridge between the traditional world of assets (like real estate or renewable energy plants) and the blockchain world. Imagine you have a large solar power plant. Instead of one person or company owning it, we use blockchain to divide the ownership into many parts (or "tokens"). This is called "tokenization". By doing this, many people can own small parts of the plant without having to buy the whole thing. This "fractionalization" makes it easier and more affordable for regular people to invest in big assets like renewable energy projects.




What impact does LumiShare expect to have on access to funding for verified renewable energy projects for both individual and institutional investors?


LumiShare envisions reshaping the way renewable energy projects are financed by democratizing access to funding for both individual and institutional investors. Here's the anticipated impact: 

1. Broader Accessibility: Historically, high-impact renewable energy projects were primarily the domain of big institutional players due to the substantial capital requirements and intricate deal structures. LumiShare seeks to change this by allowing individual investors to participate with relatively lower capital, unlocking a vast reservoir of potential funds. 

2. Tokenization Benefits: By tokenizing renewable energy assets, LumiShare makes it feasible for investors to own fractions of these assets. This fractional ownership means that projects can have multiple funders, diversifying the financial base and reducing reliance on large singular investments. 

3. Faster Project Execution: With more accessible funds, project initiators can swiftly move from planning to execution, accelerating the global transition to renewable energy. 

4. Transparent Financing: LumiShare's blockchain foundation ensures that all transactions, be it project funding or returns distribution, are transparent. Investors can track the flow of their funds and the progress of their chosen projects in real-time.

 5. Enhanced Trust: The backing of investments with tangible assets, such as gold and a cash reserve, as well as the public validation methods LumiShare employs, can increase investor confidence. When people trust the system, they're more likely to invest, and this increased financial participation can significantly boost the number of projects receiving funding.

 6. Tailored Opportunities: LumiShare provides a platform where both individual and institutional investors can find projects aligned with their financial goals and impact vision. Whether someone is looking for short-term returns or long-term impact, the diversified project portfolio ensures there's something for everyone.




LumiShare is committed to sustainability and mentions alignment with UN SDG Goal 7. How does LumiShare specifically contribute to the production of affordable, clean renewable energy worldwide?


At LumiShare, our commitment to UN SDG Goal 7 is evident through our innovative model that tokenizes renewable energy assets, opening doors for a more diverse set of investors. We prioritize bridging the funding gap in underserved regions, making clean energy solutions more accessible to them. Our blockchain-based platform champions transparency in all renewable energy investments, fostering trust among participants. Part of our ongoing mission is to raise global awareness about the benefits and potential of renewable energy. With LumiPlace, our marketplace, we've paved a way for both individuals and institutions to tap into profitable renewable energy investments. The tangible asset backing of our investments ensures added security for our investors.




LumiPlace is the asset-backed NFT Marketplace for LumiShare. How does this platform work, and how does it facilitate investment in renewable energy assets?


LumiPlace operates as a revolutionary NFT marketplace where renewable energy assets are tokenized and fractionalized. In simpler terms, assets like solar panels or wind turbines are represented as digital tokens on our platform. By doing this, we allow both individual and institutional investors to purchase a fraction or 'share' of these assets. As these assets produce energy and generate revenue, the returns are distributed to token holders. This approach not only democratizes investment in renewable energy but also offers a tangible, transparent way for anyone to contribute to and benefit from the green energy movement, regardless of their investment size.




Given that LumiShare is involved in tokenizing real-world assets, how do you address regulatory and security challenges in the blockchain space?


Navigating the regulatory landscape and ensuring security are paramount for LumiShare. We proactively engage with legal experts and regulatory bodies to ensure compliance. Our blockchain infrastructure incorporates advanced security measures to safeguard assets and transactions against potential threats. Furthermore, by maintaining transparent operations, regular audits, and fostering open dialogues with both our community and regulators, we aim to create a trustworthy and secure environment for our users, ensuring the integrity of our tokenized assets at all times.




Asset tokenization is a growing field. What are the main obstacles LumiShare has encountered so far in implementing its vision, and how have they been overcome?


LumiShare acknowledges that the journey of asset tokenization presents various hurdles. Our main challenges have included navigating the evolving regulatory landscape, educating the market on the benefits of tokenized assets, and integrating traditional asset systems with blockchain technology. To address these, we've established strong partnerships with legal experts, launched extensive community outreach and education initiatives, and invested in advanced technology solutions. Our adaptability and commitment to our mission have enabled us to transform these challenges into opportunities for growth and innovation.




What is LumiShare's long-term vision for expanding its blockchain ecosystem beyond renewable energy assets?


LumiShare's long-term vision is anchored in creating a versatile blockchain ecosystem that extends well beyond renewable energy. While championing green initiatives remains our cornerstone, we're eager to tap into other real-world asset classes, making them more transparent, accessible, and efficient. This includes realms like real estate, precious metals, and intellectual properties. But, it's important to highlight our KPI-driven methodology; before advancing to new asset categories, we rigorously ensure that our performance indicators are met, underscoring our commitment to excellence and steadfast progress.




With increasing attention to sustainability and ethical investment, how does LumiShare ensure that the renewable energy projects on its platform meet environmental and ethical standards?


In the wake of a heightened focus on sustainability and ethical investment, LumiShare prioritizes due diligence and stringent vetting processes. We will collaborate with recognized environmental experts and third-party agencies to assess and verify each renewable energy project listed on our platform. This ensures that not only do they align with our rigorous environmental standards but also adhere to ethical practices, guaranteeing that our investors are supporting genuinely sustainable and ethically sound projects.
