If bread were growing on trees, investors in a food industry would hardly need to calculate ROI thoroughly. Not because the sector would be too lucrative to calculate the ratio of income and expenditure but because any feasibility improvement would be senselessly redundant in such a case.

Batteries don’t grow…


The Ocean bottom is the next frontier for both marine scientists and mineral miners. Since less than 15% of seabed have been mapped, we still have a great deal to learn about resources available deep underwater. But quite predictable environmental effects seem an obstacle.

In fact, we know more about…


During the last decade, when the term “Gold Rush” having roots in the XIX century was appearing from time to time on the internet with regard to the upcoming seabed mining of “battery” minerals, the majority of observers could hardly take the term literally. It was an appropriate telling metaphor…


When engineers at Krypton Ocean Group are asked to describe their seabed mining technology in two words, they often smile delivering literally two words: “deepwater elevators”. This seemingly primitive definition reflects, nevertheless, the very meaning of what Krypton has been developing and sharpening since 2014. Today, the technology is in…


There is a certain number of the economical, political, and environmental reasons for the current delay with a fully operational seabed mineral mining. Both mining professionals and outside observers follow different opinions why minerals from the ocean floor still remain unreachable at industrial scale.

Some emphasize a hypothetical environmental impact…


WHAT PREVENTS SEABED MINING FROM BEING FULLY OPERATIONAL

We are living in strange times: on the one hand, the fanciest global trend implies shifting to the ultimately eco-friendly “green” economy where fossil fuels are to be rejected. On the other hand, we keep destroying our planet with the predatory onshore…

The contemporary media environment represents a few core topics around which all media narratives start bouncing. The renewables constitute one of the most popular topics today. …


или почему “батарейный кризис” — экономическое кликушество

Некоторые наивно полагают, будто Илон Маск чуть ли не в одно лицо изобрёл целую индустрию электроавтопрома. На самом деле объективные социо-экономические предпосылки (политическая лихорадка с нефтью, ужесточение экологических норм в связи с глобальным потеплением) сделали возможным то, что ещё лет 15–20 назад казалось…


The first part of this conceptual explanation is devoted to describing the socio-economic rationale of the gamified investment platform we are going to create. …


We are living in the age of hybrid solutions. Hybrid wars, hybrid vehicles, hybrid biological objects all reflect the trend of the synergy we are facing in these days of a growing complexity of the contemporary socio-economic relationships.

Just look at such an ambivalent topic as the so-called “Cobalt Crunch”…
