Ocean Builders, a company that builds “floating, off-grid seapod homes,” has bought an old Australian cruise ship it renamed ‘Satoshi’ and plans to fill with crypto companies, entrepreneurs, and digital nomads off the coast of Panama.
In an announcement, Ocean Builders COO Chad Elwartowski, said the ship will comprise a hub for innovation, offering a unique space in which crypto entrepreneurs can build and network:
“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.”
The ship was built in 1991 with the name Pacific Dawn and has since been operated by Princess Cruises and P&O Australia. P&O’s parent company Carnival Corporation decided to sell the ship due to the impact of the pandemic on the cruising industry.
The ‘Crypto Cruise Ship’ is named Satoshi after Bitcoin’s (BTC) pseudonymous creator, with Elwartowski
