This is one way to piggy-back on the rising popularity of Bitcoin. A 13 acre property in the Caribbean is being offered for sale at a price of just 600 Bitcoin. The promotional savvy is helping to raise the profile of Union Island in St Vincent and the Grenadines. The English speaking island is home to a population of just 3000 so you will be certain to get some peace and quiet if you happen to purchase the property
The seller notes that if you were fortunate enough to hold £440,000 of BTC at the beginning of 2017 you may purchase your own island hideaway as you may now afford the approximately £5.3 million purchase price as the price of Bitcoin has rocketed dramatically higher during the past year. Heck, just think if you had purchased BTC a few years ago when it was traded in the single digits.
Bloody Bay, as the property is called, comes with plans to build a villa and beach bar, and is within a few minutes of a small airport linking Union Island with St Vincent and the other Grenadine islands. The seller says the award winning architect Seth Stein has also drawn up plans for a collection of luxury cabins should the new owner wish entertain visiting friends and family.
On the neighboring Canouan Island, more than £150 million has been spent by the owners of the Sandy Lane resort in Barbados on developing the luxury Pink Sands Club. They’ve also added a 6,000ft runaway- the longest in the Grenadines – and a multi-million dollar super yacht marina.
Of course, if you happened to have had the fortune of buying Bitcoin back in the day and held onto it until now – maybe you should be considering purchasing a mega-yacht instead? Why be anchored in one location?
