The sole purpose of this Whitepaper is to present, to any person potentially interested in con-
cluding legal relationships with SAE, its business model and the SAM Token in connection with
the ICO planned by SAE. This Whitepaper is no prospectus within the meaning of the Swiss
Code of Obligations (hereafter «CO») (particularly of article 652a CO). It does neither create
any rights and/or obligations, nor does it imply either an offer to conclude a contract or an in-
vitation to make such an offer. The legal relationship between an acquirer of SAM Tokens and
the SAE is regulated exclusively by the Token Purchase Terms.
SAE is a company incorporated under the laws of Switzerland and having its registered office
in Switzerland. In the course of carrying out its business activity it complies with the applicable
legal and regulatory requirements in Switzerland. In SAE’s view, the SAM Token is to be quali-
fied as a cryptocurrency. SAE complies with the applicable Swiss regulation, in p...

The blockchain community worldwide fac-
es strong headwinds due to the very ener-
gy-intensive mining process of crypto currencies
and blockchain-based business applications. At the
same time, in the Swiss alps, thousands of unused
structures are disintegrating due to the fact that to-
day’s spatial planning law does not allow for resi-
dential use of these buildings.
Swiss Alps Mining & Energy connects these two
worlds by offering environmentally friendly mining
facilities in unused buildings in the Swiss alps, pow-
ered by renewable energy only.
Swiss Alps Energy AG (SAE) will hold an Initial Coin
Offering (ICO) in June 2018. The funds raised in the
ICO will be used to finance the development and ex-
pansion of the mining facilities and to acquire hold-
ings in hydropower plants. The SAM token, Sam, is
an ERC20 token. It will be used as means of payment
within the SAE m...

term stationary use. Thereby, SAE preserves the ...
Switzerland, a safe country with high environmen-
tal standards set in place, is growing into the center
of blockchain technology. Due to a good and cheap
supply of renewable energy, Switzerland is a very
attractive location for mining facilities as profita-
ble mining is possible. Market acceptance of crypto
currencies and blockchain technology is steadily in-
creasing. Mining farms are rapidly growing, and re-
newable energies are gaining ground. Renewable en-
ergy can be sold abroad and enjoys high market ac-
ceptance. Thanks to the steady growth in the use of
blockchain technology worldwide, energy consump-
tion for mining will continue to increase. This pro-
vides interesting opportunities for providers of min-
ing facilities and for power producers.
Swiss Alps Energy AG uses renewable energy only.
Long-term whole-sale purchasing agreements and
the management of the company’s own small hydro-
power plants allow ...
Swiss Alps Mining & Energy
wiss Alps Mining & Energy strives to enable
environmentally friendly mining of crypto
currencies in the Swiss alps. Swiss Alps En-
ergy AG (SAE) is Swiss Alps Mining & Energy’s op-
erating business. SAE is a Swiss startup company
in the area of crypto mining and energy, located in
Huenenberg, Canton of Zug.
SAE plans to start operating crypto mining farms in
the Swiss alps in 2018 – a pioneering project.
These farms are situated in buildings no longer used
by local farmers. SAE will at the same time
operate small hydropower plants to produce the
electricity needed for crypto mining.
Blockchain, crypto currencies, and environmen-
Blockchain technology revolutionizes the view on
conventional fiat currencies as it enables the min-
ing of digital currencies. The introduction of bitcoin

It is of utmost importance
that neutral members support
the network independently of

dirty energy that significantly contributes to climate
change. The energy used worldwide for bitcoin min-

In addition, mining in authoritarian countries
threatens the philosophy of the distributed ledg-
er system and increases the risk of market manip-
ulation. To address these issues, a next-generation
strategy is needed. Such a strategy must meet the
• use of climate-friendly
energy for mining processes
• independent stabilization of
the distributed ledger network
• increased usability of crypto currencies
and the underlying technology
for the wider public
nentially, leading to an alarming level of energy con-
sumption. The interest in digital currencies has al-
so led t...
