Cryptocurrencies of Thailand: working in heaven, part 1
Entering the Remote and Digitals La Casa co-working space on the tropical island of Koh Phangan, you wonder how to work. I sip a cocktail and wait for my burrito while James Brown plays in the background.
There’s a real palm growing on the edge of the cafe, and behind it lies shallow crystal clear water that stretches for miles, with the jungle-covered mountains of Koh Samuis jutting out into the distance. In addition to the atmosphere, the kite surfers are taking in massive air from the small waves, before gently returning to land.
Jrme Van Vlierbergen, a 30-year-old Belgian blockchain developer, is one of the regular customers of this one Ban Tai co-working space and runs his Equinox Launchpad here. He explains that Koh Phangan (or Koh Phangan) has a thriving crypto scene, mostly populated by digital nomads like him.
