A Cryptocurrency Millionaire Wants to Build a Utopia in Nevada

STOREY COUNTY, Nev. ó An enormous plot of land in the Nevada desert ó bigger than nearby Reno ó has been the subject of local intrigue since a company with no history, Blockchains L.L.C., bought it for $170 million in cash this year.

The man who owns the company, a lawyer and cryptocurrency millionaire named Jeffrey Berns, put on a helmet and climbed into a Polaris off-road vehicle last week to give a tour of the sprawling property and dispel a bit of the mystery.

He imagines a sort of experimental community spread over about a hundred square miles, where houses, schools, commercial districts and production studios will be built. The centerpiece of this giant project will be the blockchain, a new kind of database that was introduced by Bitcoin.

I know exactly what you mean. Let me tell you why youíre here. Youíre here because you know something. What you know you canít explain, but you feel it. Youíve felt it your entire life, that thereís something wrong with the world.
You donít know what it is but its there, like a splinter in your mind

Blockchain LLC should have found some property with water....LOL. 

The price was no doubt good. But whoever sold it got the better end of that deal though, probably.

I once sorta knew a lawyer who specialized in creating LLC's. He said it was a business device used by smart guys who call themselves General Partners.....to screw their  Limited Partner investors..

100 square miles along the Yukon River would have been a better choice.




NORTH TO ALASKA!

I knew I'd like Alaska, but the missus had expressed skepticism before we came up. But she was won over. I am very glad we got up there.

It's not really so bad in the winter, if you live near the coast.  The water keeps the temps from getting too cold.  Not as cold as North Dakota or Minnesota for instance.  Stay away from Fairbanks though.  ::) The Skiing is GREAT also, and Snow Machining too as long as the gas holds out.  After that, back to the Dog Sleds!
