Cryptocurrency has radically improved the transparency, speed and security of property transactions with smart contracts, hence it is really ground-breaking to do what we are doing. Of course, paying in bitcoin for this development is just an option. At the same time, we are very pleased to be working with the Cristal Group to open this resort. We believe that Cristal’s premium service and brand will add exceptional value to our property.”
