What is the payment situation? The option of paying with cryptocurrency will be available at three resorts in the Maldives (Soneva Fushi, Soneva Jani, and Soneva in Aqua) and Thailand (Soneva Kiri). BTC and ETH can also be used to purchase real estate in the Maldives at Soneva Villa Ownership.

To accept cryptocurrencies, Soneva partners with two companies: crypto payment provider Triple A and payment platform Pomelo Pay. Triple A is licensed by the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS). The company’s website states:

“Soneva will only accept and, where required refund, cryptocurrencies for their USD value at the moment of the transactions and excluding any additional fees from the third parties.”

In April, Taylor Travel Management Group, a Dutch travel agency specializing in VIP travel, began accepting crypto payments.

In June, Ukrainian developer DIM provided an option to buy real estate in residential complexes for stablecoins. Transactions can be made using USDC, DAI, BUSD, and USDT.
