Back in Spring 2022, I come up with an idea - launching a crypto token for investing in Batumi real estate. The original idea was to issue about 100 tokens over Ethereum smart chain, collect the funds, buy the property, sell it for a profit, and buy back tokens at an increased price.  I still like this idea, and I'm still looking to go forward with it. During the past 6 months my idea didn't raise much interest, yes I had a talk with a few investors, but most were not aware of what a smart…

It was back in 2011 or 2012 when I first heard about Bank of Georgia or TBC bank is listed on the London stock exchange. Back then I thought - wow, cool, impressive.

Sure, I found Georgia Stock exchange website, but what I saw there a few years ago, didn't give me a lot of confidence to trust the platform and investigate more, On the other hand, I was more interested in buying stocks, rather investing in bonds.
