This small Caribbean paradise is set to be home to the world’s first fully Bitcoin-enabled community

Just over 18 square kilometres in size, the paradise island of Bequia (pronounced ‘Bekway’) is off-grid when it comes to most visitors to the Caribbean, except for celebrities and the odd member of the British royal family.

But attention is set to be firmly focused on the second-largest island of the Grenadines archipelago as it becomes home to the world's first fully Bitcoin-enabled community.

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.

Bitcoin will also be accepted as payment for everyday essentials at the development's grocery store as well as at its restaurant, café, and cinema.
