Caribbean Island Bequia Embracing Bitcoin

Bequia, an 18-square-kilometer island in the Caribbean’s Grenadines archipelago, is poised to become one of the most Bitcoin-integrated communities in the world.

“The One Bequia development, where 39 luxury villas are set to be built, will be the first of its kind in the Caribbean to accept bitcoin as payment for the properties,” according to a recent report from Euronews. “Bitcoin will also be accepted as payment for everyday essentials at the development’s grocery store as well as its restaurant, café and cinema.”
