Antigua Citizenship can now be bought with Bitcoin
The lowest amount required to become an Antiguan Barbudian through an investment is US$100,000. So you now only need a little over 12 bitcoins to pay for that at current prices.
This is after Antigua and Barbuda’s Citizenship by Investment Program Act was amended by the country’s parliament allowing payments to be made using bitcoin as well as other cryptocurrencies. The resolution was announced by the country’s Prime Minister and Minister of Finance & Corporate Governance & Public-Private Partnerships, Hon. Gaston Browne, according to Antigua News Room.
As indicated by Browne, the choice was made with a perspective of making it helpful for citizenship searchers who possess digital currencies. Furthermore, by including this strategy for installment, the program will have the capacity to draw in more individuals from over the globe.
“And the truth is too, it expands your market because we have a number of cryptocurrency investors who may be quite willing to take up our citizenship but would only pay in cryptocurrencies,” Browne told the country’s parliament. “If you do not accept the cryptocurrency then you would be literally locked out of that market.”
