Our founders represent a clever and colorful tribe of entrepreneurs and investors straight from the back streets of global innovation.

‘Las Tres Guerreras’ is a vibrant and powerful depiction of Cartagenan indigene that looks out over the old city's walls. London-based graffiti artist Fin DAC is a self-taught non-conformist and realist who calls his style Urban Aesthetics — an atypical paint/stencil style that ignores the traditional street art approach almost completely.

The Chinese government tracks its people, stores their biometric data, and ranks them according to their ‘loyalty’ to the Communist Party. Just think what the CCP will do for you.

China cuts Uyghur births with IUDs, abortion, and sterilization as part of a sweeping campaign to curb its Muslim population. Even the Uyghur diaspora lives in fear of the Chinese state. The CCP’s treatment of the Uyghurs should inform our China policy.

The best spin on the Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) involvement with the global spread of COVID is they were playing around in some biological warfare lab, a virus got loose by mistake, they hid the data, and then all hell broke loose. Worst case, the CCP released this menace as part of a grand strategy to disrupt the U.S. economy and take down an American President who became their worst enemy. Plot or not, it was Mission Accomplished for the most brutal regime on the planet. …


Bitcoin boomed during the pandemic — up close to 80 percent since the lockdown in March — and just might end up as good as gold.

Despite being a fully-committed blockchain revolutionary for more than a few years now, if you had asked me just six months ago if you should buy bitcoin, my answer would have been ‘I don’t know.’ Maybe the pandemic loosened one of my bolts, but my gut-opinion on bitcoin has changed, and today I am going to tell you why.

First, a qualifier. Way back in 1999, Roger McNamee, a billionaire tech investor, psychedelic rock star, and author of the book, Zucked — Waking Up to the Facebook Catastrophe, gave my brother Michael and me some straightforward yet sage advice. We…


VCs banked a record-breaking $250 billion in exits in 2019.

In 2019, 1,152 VC-backed companies were sold for $182 billion, and VCs banked an additional $200 billion in IPO exits.

Venture-backed companies continue to be the most dominant contributors to the growth of new jobs and wealth globally. Despite the relatively young age of modern venture capital, a fourth of current public US companies received VC financing. Today the top 5 (and 7 out of 10) of the most valuable companies received VC-backing. These public tech companies' total market capitalization now exceeds $7 trillion, and they employ over 3 million people.

Overall the VC market had a banner year of returns in 2019. According to Crunchbase, 1,152 VC-backed companies were sold for $182 billion in 2019. VCs banked an additional…


Zuck’s complete 6,000-word letter on Facebook’s global ambitions posted on January 7th, 2020.

To our community,

On our journey to connect the world, we often discuss products we’re building and updates on our business. Today I want to focus on the most important question of all: are we building the world we all want?

History is the story of how we’ve learned to come together in ever greater numbers — from tribes to cities to nations. At each step, we built social infrastructures like communities, media, and governments to empower us to achieve things we couldn’t on our own.

Today we are close to taking our next step. Our greatest opportunities are now…


Instagram and YouTube invented the paid ‘influencer’ — now an $8 billion industry. Cryptonite aims to turn innovation entrepreneurs into the rock stars of the ‘20s.

Most of the world’s new jobs and wealth are created by innovation entrepreneurs. These folks also represent the demographic with the highest business and consumer purchasing power and appetite for professional and investment risk.

Fueled by a growing mistrust of traditional advertising and media and the ever-expanding infobesity epidemic, people are radically more discerning about what they see online. Wary Millennials and Gen Xers regularly seek reviews from people they trust on social media before making purchasing and other big decisions. Over 80 percent of global executives surveyed admit to feeling overwhelmed and often confused by the volume of content they encounter and have become demonstrably more selective about what they read as a result. …


Cryptonite honors great entrepreneurs, great innovation, and the money-making spirit.

That is our core value, and that is who we are. We believe that entrepreneurs who are passionate about innovation can change the world for the better. Our editors are privileged to see this happen, up close, almost every working day.

Nikola Tesla and Thomas Edison — two giants of electrical engineering whose inventions changed history.

We honor these champions by providing a global community platform where they can learn, test their ideas, build their reputations, gain support, and build wonderfully innovative products and companies.

As Apple co-founder Steve Jobs is famous for saying, ‘The people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones who do.’

Staying informed, connected…

A trusted social media network for entrepreneurs on their journey to make a mark in time.

In the world’s best-selling novel by a living author, The Alchemist, Paulo Coelho tells the story of an Andalusian shepherd boy named Santiago on the road to find the meaning of life. Along the way, Santiago meets the old king of Salem, named Melchizedek, who tells him to sell his sheep, go to Egypt, and introduces the idea of a Personal Legend.

‘Everyone, when they are young, knows what their Personal Legend is,’ the King Melchizedek counseled the young pilgrim.

‘Your Personal Legend is what you have always wanted to accomplish. Everyone, when they are young, knows what their Personal Legend is,’ the King counseled. …
