A former cruise ship, built by P&O Cruises Australia, is to receive its new statute. Built-in 1991, the Pacific Dawn will reportedly maintain in seas with a brand new name – Satoshi. Plans are it will be an exquisite hub for digital nomads, entrepreneurs, and crypto companies.
“The Crypto Cruise Ship”
As per a recent report, the traveling vessel will remain floating with a new useful and exciting purpose. The company Ocean Builders, focusing on constructing floating, off-grid seapod homes, aims to create a new dwell-like place in the ocean. It will serve as a “technology incubator hub” for entrepreneurs, expats, and digital nomads.
Furthermore, crypto companies will be able to test their innovations and technologies in a controlled environment, said Chad Elwartowski, COO of Ocean Builders, a key investor in the project, and an American Bitcoin entrepreneur.
“We look forward to creating a hub for technology and innovation here in Panama. Our goal is to figure out how to live sustainably on the sea and chart new waters in this new frontier,” added Elwartowski.
The Crypto Cruise Ship will offer an option for residential vacation rentals, including areas designated for research and office space. There will also be access to various amenities on the vessel, including bars, restaurants, lounges, fitness centers, and casinos. The commercial spaces will be reportedly operated by individual companies that might get interested in living and working abroad.
Elwartowski said that the future “crypto cruise ship” will be delivered in the Mediterranean waters on November 4. Columbia Cruise Services will reportedly handle the management of operations of the ship, and the vessel will be symbolically called Satoshi, named after the pseudonymous creator of Bitcoin.
An Ocean View For $25,000 – $50,000
As per the report, the Crypto Cruise Ship will auction 200 of a total of 777 cabins to customers and residents from November 5 to 28. The idea is that parents and children would have their own space available also with a balcony or an ocean view room. A purchase will give buyers full, indefinite ownership of their cabin, paying a monthly fee to cover additional operating expenses.
Hopes are Satoshi would be available for residency and companies in early 2021.
