Visit The Top Blockchain And Cryptocurrency Power Hubs Of The World

December 14, 2017

The revolution might not be televised, but it will most certainly be digitized.

That’s the message, at least, of my friend Jonathan Roth’s short film on blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies, titled “Cryptocurrency Revolution: On the Frontlines of the World’s Hottest Tech Opportunity.”

I was very honored to participate in the making of this film, which takes viewers on a tour of some of the world’s key power hubs in the cryptocurrency industry. That includes Iceland, home of the Enigma Ethereum Mine.

The largest such mining farm in the world, Enigma is the crown jewel of Genesis Mining, whose billionaire cofounder and CEO, Marco Streng, likes to compare blockchain to the earliest days of the internet.

“Everyone knows by now that this space has huge potential and drives innovation, but we can’t know how big it will be,” Marco says in the film.

Similarly, few people in the mid-1990s could have guessed just how dominant Google and Amazon would become in people’s day-to-day lives.

This is a sentiment shared by my good friend Frank Giustra, founder of Lionsgate Entertainment, who was instrumental in helping HIVE Blockchain Technologies become the world’s very first publically-traded blockchain and cryptocurrency mining company.

“This game will evolve. It’s not going to stay static,” Frank says. “We just have to figure out how to stay relevant and part of what will be a technology that is not going to go away.”
