How to Buy Cryptocurrency in Grenada

Buying cryptocurrency in Grenada

Buying cryptocurrency in GrenadaLately the subject of cryptocurrencies and Bitcoin has been steadily gaining popularity. Furthermore, there is a growing number of countries in the Caribbean that are beginning to recognize the economic potential of cryptocurrencies and supporting them through well-established legislative frameworks. This is mirrored by public enthusiasm to learn more about the industry itself, as well as in government attempts to regulate it. Unfortunately, Grenada still does not have any specific legislation to help regulate cryptocurrencies and cryptocurrency trading. But the good news is that it has signed up to participate in the ECCB (Eastern Caribbean Central Bank) pilot project. The project will involve launching of a blockchain-powered central bank virtual currency, and it is going to test the use of crypto alongside the official national currency. Like many other Caribbean countries, the government of Grenada is hoping such endeavours will boost the country’s economy and make it attractive for investors.
