George Weiksner, 12 Year Old Crypto-Gaming Company Owner Set to Launch ICO With Grammy-Winner, Devo Harris
The online gaming platforms are about to get better with the invention of cryptocurrencies. George Weiksner surprised keen crypto and financial markets observers when the 12 year old launched his own crypto-gaming oriented company last year. Since then, the project known as ‘Pocketful of Quarters’ has been sourcing for funds before its ICO goes public soon.
News outlets within the crypto space are now reporting of a new milestone by George in his company’s ICO journey. The young lad has secured an influential Grammy-winner and producer, Devo Harris, to help his project reach its $1 million dollar target during the ICO sale!
Devo Harris is a big success factor for ‘Pocketful of Quarters’ given his presence within the entertainment arena that might be an adoption driver. The artist has worked with popular figures in the industry like Kanye West, John Legend, Nas and Britney Spears. According to Harris, his experience will come in handy in George’s crypto-gaming project as well,
“Kanye West, John Legend and I sparked movements by listeners that has transformed music and culture,” said Harris in the news release. “With Quarters, George and I can ignite a movement by players that transforms games and cryptocurrency.”
The ‘Pocketful of Quarters’ Solution
As of press date, the company has raised close to half of its ICO target via the private sale only. This is why both the founder and the newly signed Grammy-winner are bullish on achieving targets. Republic.co is the vehicle that will facilitate the project’s crowdfunding.
Weiksner indeed identified an area that was lacking in today’s gaming technologies. This distinguishes his project from other gaming or crypto-related start-ups as his intention is to enhance the gaming experience using cryptocurrencies. Pocketful of Quarters is meant to tokenize the gaming credits acquired by players while engaging in the game in order to transfer the credits for use later. At the moment, gamers remain with a significant amount of unused credits.
Weiksner stated that he didn’t like the idea of losing earned or purchased coins simply because he was not into a game anymore. Today, his Pocketful of Quarters project is roughly a year old making him the youngest individual to launch a token sale within the SEC compliance guidelines. George has received support from popular YouTube figures like Michelle Phan who tweeted,

Phan related with Weiksner’s idea owing to the fact she grew up playing video games which largely influenced her position today. The Ipsy founder further added that she believes Pocketful of Quarters will indeed improve the experience derived by gamers in the blockchain era. In addition, Phan and ‘Medal of Honor’ founder, Chris Cross, will join George for coaching on investment. Way to go George Weiksner!
