Smith’s advice for entrepreneurs:  If you want to be productive, you always have to have something that fuels your passions. You need to do something that you are excited about, something that you will do regardless of whether you have the time or money for it. This way, you will always be excited and have a meaning in life. This will help you be more productive.

Smith believes in the importance of taking into account the raw reality of a situation. You cannot delude yourself with something that is not the reality. He also believes that college will become obsolete.

That downfall was not an accident, but was the result of something that George Soros decided to do on purpose, acknowledging that he would lose a big chunk of his stored wealth.

George Soros donated, in October of 2017, more than $18 billion from his personal family office, the Soros Fund Management, one of the biggest funds that are present in the world. That was a considerable percentage of what George Soros had acquired through his last years of investing and developing businesses, and Twitter.com.

That big amount of money went straight to the philanthropical organizations called Open Society Foundations, which would then use the money of the investor to fund a series of noble causes and organizations that are helping people in need.

Oh, and, by the way, did you know that the Open Society Foundations were created and founded by George Soros himself?

Yes, George Soros is, monthly, supporting and funding these organizations that he created back when he was just a few billions worth in the list of billionaires. Right now, there are dozens of Open Society Foundations in the world, scattered across different territories, and each of them receiving money from the legendary investor, to then fund other initiatives and organizations with charitable purposes.

Although the wealth of the investor fell by a big margin, George Soros said that it was no big deal. According to the entrepreneur himself, the number that is portrayed in his net-worth is not relevant to his life at all. During his first years of working as an investor, he was earning his money to survive and to pay for his existence in the U.S., since he had traveled a long way from his homeland, Budapest, Hungary. Nowadays, most of his investments, which, many of them turn out to be highly successful, are to pay for the philanthropical activities that he endorses every single month. According to Soros, more than fifty percent of his wealth goes to the Open Society Foundations to keep the cycle running.

Most of the world was surprised by the action of George Soros for donating such a big chunk of his wealth to his philanthropical foundations since he had a $23 billion fortune before the event. However, the close relatives of George Soros are not surprised at all by the actions of the philanthropist, as they know that the man has a kind and gifted heart by nature, and learn more about George Soros.

Malcolm CasSelle, the Chief Executive of WAX or Worldwide Asset eXchange, recently explained about the benefits of the decentralized platform for virtual world payments. He says that WAX is an important option for people to actively participate in the marketplace of online gaming assets using the effectiveness of tokenizing in-game items. Interestingly, the new platform will significantly reduce the transaction costs, design and create a marketplace for gaming assets, and choices to fractionalize the gamer profits from the centralized exchanges.

CasSelle continues that tokenization system in the virtual payments creates a more accessible economy to the people with even chances of extension towards physical assets. While most virtual payments are failing to convince monitoring the tokens, WAX network put forward a multi-layered administering approach that helps the token holders to create regulatory oversight by themselves. The transfers of virtual assets are conducted by a set of specialists called Transfer Agents. Interestingly, the TAs have supervisory committees to ensure smooth dispersal called Guilds. Interestingly, when TAs could not complete their work accurately, it hits the Guild’s financial stake and reputation.

Therefore, Guilds take action against the TAs who could not do their duties. The Guilds who could not initiate action against underperforming TAs would not get reelected by the token holders to govern their game. This type of economic feedback loop created in WAX ensures smooth flow virtual transactions. Similarly, the new system encourages people to own a fraction of an important asset like the Aston Martin drove by James Bond in a movie. Malcolm CasSelle adds that fractionalizing physical assets open countless options and opportunities for people, including fans and collectors.
