You Can Rent This Private Island Surf Resort for 1 Bitcoin
Buy, sell, buy, sell…
A luxury surf resort in the middle of the Pacific Ocean is now accepting a new currency form. Beran Island Resort, located in the Marshall Islands, is accepting bitcoin (BTC) as a payment form. With this transition, they hope to attract the attention of younger consumers.
Surfers can book a trip with up to 15 of their friends and rent out the private island for 1 BTC, roughly $53,000 when the offer was posted. The number is closer to $45,000 now.
According to Coin Desk:
A spokesperson told CoinDesk the move is in line with the Sovereign Currency Act 2018, passed as part of the Marshall Islands’ attempt to transition away from a reliance on the U.S. dollar.
The resort claims to be eco-friendly, with its energy supply coming from solar panels and wind turbines. It’s also working with the government to create a shark sanctuary, according to the statement.
Surfing and crypto currencies, an unexpected but lovely duo.
