Blockchain millionaire starts first crypto living community

Cryptocurrency millionaire Jeffrey Berns (Blockchains LLC) purchased an 67,00-acre plot in the Nevada desert to found an ‘experimental community’ which revolves around crypto currency and other new technologies. Berns believes cryptocurrency Etherieum will give people a way to control their identity and online data without any governments or companies involved. The identy of every resident will be translated into an Etherieum address that will be used to vote on local measures and store personal data. By creating a real-world laboratory, Berns hopes that some of the primary problems that come with crypto communities, such as security, can be tackled. Other technologies Berns want to incorporate are 3D printing, nano technology and AI. Read & see more about the project here.
