In 2013, Berwick announced his plans to co-found the world's first Bitcoin automated teller machine (ATM). He subsequently withdrew from the Bitcoin ATM project, but stated he will be entering into future Bitcoin ventures.
In June 2005, Berwick was in the process of circumnavigating the world in his 35' sailing catamaran when he was caught in a storm and the ship sank, leaving Berwick on his surfboard, later to be rescued with minor injuries by other sailors near Jiquilisco Bay, El Salvador.
