At a young age Jeffrey Wernick parlayed $5,000 in $250,000 and that success was hardly the exception. Later in life he would be an early investor in Uber, Airbnb and most notably, Bitcoin. He’s a strong believer in blockchain technology and a regular speaker at blockchain conferences. We’re proud to have him on Value Tokenized with the CryptoTwins and we hope that you learn as much from him as we did.

Why projects will be tokenized

It’s 6:10 pm and you just finished your job. As you walk by the long hall of pictures covered with serious faces you finally get to the ground level. After getting dressed in your long coat, you notice a group of girls on the street, waving at you and openly asking for your attention.

You walk closer and you hear the garbled fragments of words like “help”, “donation” and “raise awareness”. …

When you think Nevada you picture tumbleweed, high heat, cowboy welcome sign and endless desert expanses covering the whole state south to north, and east to west. When you wonder about life there, you get news like “Dead brothel owner wins Nevada state assembly seat” or “Nevada County Police Blotter: Man locked in women’s room for three hours”.

It’s unusual, it’s intriguing, but it’s also the last place you think of when it comes to a possible homeland of a rising technological empire.

But this doesn’t scare the former lawyer and recently-made cryptocurrency millionaire, Jeffrey Berns. According to tabloids, he…

The general perception of the crypto space as a haven for scam, money laundering and fraudulent transactions deeply affects market growth and holds back the industry development.

For instance, Canada’s Better Business Bureau reports that ICO scams resulted in over $1.7 million CAD of losses in 2017. However, the Bureau admits this figure may be highly inaccurate. …

Airdrops are free distributions of cryptocurrency utility tokens offered by companies to provide access to their service to current or potential clients. As the blockchain network grows, so does the number of floating cryptocurrencies in the market. Hence, if an organization launches its own cryptocurrency, it might ‘airdrop’ some to attract more customers to their newly introduced digital coin.

In technical terms, an airdrop can be explained as assigning private keys of a certain cryptocurrency to pre-existing users so that they can start using it in a virtual currency network. …


The ICO (initial coin offering) market has brought to life a new viable way to raise funds for any innovative project that may catch the eye of a potential investor. A startup would typically issue tokens to early adopters and re-invest the funds into further project development.

In 2017, we saw a boom of chaotic ICOs that helped blockchain-powered startups collect over $5.6 billion in funding. Once the initial euphoria ebbed away, all stakeholders realized they got stuck in a highly volatile, unregulated market. The lack of legal instructions could imperil both coin issuers and investors. …
