EB-5 Investment Voice,
(Mona Shah & Associates Podcast Series)
Reported by Hermione Krumm, Esq.
EB-5 Investment Voice is the only Podcast series that focuses on and the United States immigrant investor visa, EB-5 and foreign direct investment. Mona Shah, welcomes guests from the industry including: Developers, Regional Center Operatives, Attorneys, Legislators and Politicians.
In this podcast, Mona delves into the topic of cryptocurrencies with Des Landen of CrypBrokers, exploring how Bitcoin might be employed to tackle the challenge of transferring funds for EB-5. Des entered the trading world in 2009, when Bitcoin was getting its start. Today, he works with blockchain technologies and liquid supplies of cryptocurrencies. Mona and Des discussed the benefits a company like CrypBrokers can bring to investors with the process of transferring cryptocurrency, and the potential roadblocks investors might encounter in using Bitcoin to invest in an EB-5 project.
Mona starts the episode by pointing out the two most serious challenges facing EB-5 and the solution thereto in keeping EB-5 alive, i.e. 1) increasing the visas, and 2) finding a way to tackle the difficulties in transferring currency. It has become increasingly difficult to transfer funds out of countries like China and Vietnam, and perhaps Bitcoin is the solution.
