'Alphabit invests in companies that solve real-world problems by applying blockchain and decentralization. Sun Exchange is a prime example, with technology that has potential to disrupt two of today’s most dysfunctional centralized global systems -- energy and finance. I’m convinced this will be one of the best equity investments Alphabit has made to date.' - Liam Robertson, CEO, Alphabit
