Cryptocurrency trading to help fund proposed water park at Fort James


The government says it is considering a proposal to use funds from the Citizenship by Investment Programme to fund an EC$ 50 million water park at Fort James.

Two unnamed experts who addressed the Cabinet yesterday further proposed engaging cryptocurrency trading to raise funds for the project.

The CIP Business option requires a US$400,000 minimum investment from each investor, and an ICO (Initial Coin Offering) could possibly raise as much as US$20,000,000 equivalent the government said in a statement.

It assured that the fort will remain public property, and the lands adjoining the eastern shoreline will be leased to Antiguans and other developers for the building of the water park, a hotel, shops, restaurants and other tourism amenities.

The development is intended to serve both residents and visitors when complete “and will match the Nelson’s Dockyard in its attractiveness to history, yachts, foo, and entertainment.”

  1. As if tourists wanted to find Orlando in Antigua! What are you folks smoking? Such a lovely quiet beach. so important for local recreation and relaxation. It would have to use salt water in any event. What next, I ask you. With all the critical needs that CIP funds could be used for to improve infrastructure, provide affordable housing and FIX THE WATER PROBLEM you are entertaining this proposal?REALLY?

    • Yes really. With 365 beaches… turning a few into socially festive events is a revenue generating capital investment. Where is the money for housing and water suppose to come from??? Where is the money to maintain the water and housing to come from???? REALLY??? Take a few courses in economics and investment…. then wheel and come again. Teach to fish and not give fish … and all will have a brighter day.
