Puerto Rico Aims to Attract Blockchain Startups With New Council

1 Share

Puerto Rico’s government has created an advisory council aimed at spurring the development of blockchain businesses on the island.

The move was announced Thursday during the Blockchain Unbound conference in San Juan. Manuel Laboy Rivera, Puerto Rico’s secretary of economic development and commerce, struck a bullish tone during remarks about the tech’s future prospects. The council is composed of a mix of public and private sector representatives, including Rivera, the government’s chief innovation officer and its secretary of the Treasury, as well as a mix of entrepreneurs and investors that have moved to Puerto Rico.

Blockchain, he said, “is accelerating economic and social changes worldwide and Puerto Rico wants to be a part of it.”

The creation of the council comes after a number of high-profile blockchain and cryptocurrency entrepreneurs followed investor Brock Pierce to U.S. commonwealth to set up a “crypto utopia” of sorts.

According to Rivera, Puerto Rico already offers a beneficial location for new businesses, a state of affairs that is buoyed by the tax incentives outlined in several legislative acts. These include Act 22, which provides exemptions for individual investors that are residents of the island.

On top of that, Rivera said the government – through the advisory council – will be looking at ways to develop the best possible regulations and legal framework to support blockchain businesses. That said, as a U.S. commonwealth, Puerto Rico has all the protections given by federal government and must also abide by American regulatory frameworks.

Puerto Rico’s interest in attracting blockchain entrepreneurs and investors comes after the island was hit by Hurricane Maria, the tenth-most intense Atlantic hurricane on record.

As such, the government in Puerto Rico would like to diversify its economy – and according to Rivera, officials there see blockchain as one way to do that. And after detailing the openness of the government to the industry, Rivera, pointing to the beautiful landscape and vibrant culture on the island, joked:

“But most importantly, you’ll be doing business in a tropical island.”

Medical marijuana on hold while application process vetted

1 Share

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) – A Pulaski County judge plans to issue a ruling next week after putting the state’s plans to issue licenses to five medical marijuana cultivators on hold.

Judge Wendell Griffen promised a decision on the status of his temporary injunction after a hearing Friday.

The key words are “arbitrary and capricious.” Naturalis Health, LLC is one of the losing medical marijuana hopefuls, but they claim that’s how the state acted when they graded the winning cultivators. That’s unconstitutional, and so they sued in Griffen’s court to keep the state from awarding the licenses to the winning would-be cultivators.
