Intro - Looking to the crypto future of the Caribbean

I’m new to cryptocurrency but I am so excited about it’s future in helping people take control of their money. I first went to Jamaica in 2005 and fell in love. Since then, I’ve found lifelong friends, been adopted by a mom, and made plans to eventually live there full time. I would love to use crypto investments to buy a small house in the mountains.


As a medical massage therapist by trade, I had no knowledge about Bitcoin. In 2017, a friend of mine here in Texas used it to buy a house, but for some reason I still didn’t pay attention. Recently some of my wealthiest clients started talking about Bitcoin and I realized it was past time for me to figure it out.


In the past months, I’ve begun a crash course in the field, started investing a bit, and am trying to learn as much as I can. I have been inspired to research the current use and potential future of cryptocurrency in Jamaica and the Caribbean and to write about what I’m learning.


Don’t come here for investment advice! (Insert disclaimer here) I am not a professional, I’ll never tell you what or when to buy. I will share some tools and currencies that I find but always, always do your own research.
