Gibraltar springs into a blossoming new industry: Michael Greenberg interview Part 1

By | News

It’s a beautiful Wednesday afternoon, it’s sunny and everyone seems to be in a good mood. I’ve been sent to meet with Michael Greenberg, founder of pococoins.com and independent business development consultant – who I’m told is a bit of an expert on cryptocurrency – especially ICOs.

Or just keep it simple by cooking a nice lunch and taking the dog to the beach? No… I’m about to drive to Gibraltar for a Cryptocurrency conference. “This is madness” I hear the imaginary crowd say…… “You work all week in Gibraltar, why on earth would you drive back there to do a “work thing”? And actually….. why would I?
