The Thorium Network was formed in late 2017 following a meeting with the government of a nuclear country that was formerly part of the USSR. The meeting was to negotiate obtaining their spent nuclear fuel from their nuclear power generation facilities. It became clear that the status quo for fission energy had to go. We were in the 2nd decade of the 21st century, with unparalleled access to information and people like never before, yet many are using systems – and attitudes – from the 1950’s. There just had to be a different way. After a bit of thinking it became a natural combination: blockchain and fission energy – for civilian energy production.
We call it “fission”, not nuclear. We use “burners”, not reactors. And what waste? The quantities from traditional fission energy production are rounding errors when compared to what other energy energy technologies leave behind. That means the quantities of waste are insignificant. When you use Molten Salt technology, the environmental footprint becomes infinitesimal.
And there’s Blockchain, Distributed Ledger Technology. Whereas the internet is a data superhighway, Blockchain is data integrity. Secure, Transparent, Immutable, incorruptible. What better tool is there for an energy source rife with fear, uncertainty and doubt – all through lack of proper information, lack of the truth.
Now that we are in the age of information, the data revolution, The Thorium Network brings that same thinking to tried and proven technology more than half a century old.
“It came as a surprise to me to learn recently  that such an alternative has been available to us since World War II , but not pursued because it lacked weapons applications.“Victor J. Stenger
