Blockchains LLC: A new high-tech city planned for Northern Nevada

    The New York Times recently featured Northern Nevada and Blockchains LLC, whose CEO wants to build a new high-tech city for the industrial park in Storey County east of Sparks. (“A Cryptocurrency Millionaire Wants to Build A Utopia in Nevada”)

    This city will be on 68,000 acres, roughly the size of Reno, and at the center is a new technology called blockchain that its founders hope will change the way societies interact.

    Blockchains, LLC CEO Jeffrey Berns made the announcement November 1, 2018 from Prague in the Czech Republic. The Tahoe-Reno Industrial Center announced in January it sold 100 square miles of land to Blockchains, LLC. The entire center, which includes Tesla, Google and Switch, was 162 square miles.

    The city Berns wants to create will have houses, apartments, condominiums, banks and stores, Berns said in a presentation that was live-streamed.

    “It’s not so much a city as a series of different projects to highlight the power of the public blockchain,” Berns said.

    There are also plans for a 1,000-acre campus that Berns called Blockchains Graphene Valley, a play on Silicon Valley. Graphene is a carbon material used in a variety of devices, including electronics and electricity storage generation.

    The campus will emphasize artificial intelligence, nanotechnology and three dimension printing, “all using blockchains as their core.”

    He said it will also having an arena for electronic gaming, which he thinks could surpass athletic sports, and will allow teams to be created and get sponsors.
