A Cryptocurrency Haven in Puerto Rico? It’s Happening.
Image

With high federal and state taxes looming over their newly made fortunes, some entrepreneurs are fleeing the mainland and heading to a new land of crypto opportunity: Puerto Rico. Several have already set up bases at the Monastery Hotel and a former children’s museum in the beautiful historic section of capital city San Juan. According to an interview with the New York Times, they hope to establish a “crypto utopia, a new city where the money is virtual and the contracts are all public, to show the rest of the world what a crypto future could look like.” The Puerto Rican government is even on board with the idea with the governor planning to speak at Puerto Crypto, a blockchain summit conference that will be held in March.

Yeah, I could see Puerto Rico as being a crypto tax haven for single (mainly male) Americans who are not interested in giving up citizenship or anything like that.


This is what you call a crypto game changer.
