Berwick founded Stockhouse, a penny stock promotion and marketing site, which he later sold. He later was an investor in bitcoin, appearing publicly on Fox News and other mainstream press outlets to discuss the digital currency. He also appeared on Bloomberg to discuss Bitcoin.
Berwick was host of Anarchast, an interview-style anarcho-capitalist podcast founded in 2012.
In 2013, Berwick announced his plans to co-found the world's first bitcoin ATM in Cyprus. Business Insider called the plans "bogus" and "almost certainly nonsense." which was debunked when several ATMs started appearing across the world.
In 2013, Berwick promoted Galt's Gulch Chile project, a libertarian enclave in the Curacaví region of Chile that did not come to fruition as envisioned. He was also part of an attempt to start a free-trade zone in Honduras.
In July 2005, Berwick's catamaran, caught in a 50 knot squall, was driven into the rocks and sank. Berwick and his partner survived by holding onto a broken surfboard.
