Satoshi Island is a 32 million square foot private island, located in the tropical paradise of Vanuatu, tucked between Australia and Fiji. The island, which is owned by Satoshi Island Holdings Limited, is intended to become home for crypto professionals and enthusiasts, with a goal to be considered the crypto capital of the world. After years of preparation, a green light from the Vanuatu Prime Minister and Minister Of Finance and all approvals in place, Satoshi Island is now ready to be developed into a real-world crypto economy and blockchain based democracy.

Designed by James Law, the Satoshi Island Module is a sustainable smart building.

Modules can be combined and placed into hundreds of positions

to create unique homes, apartments, amenities and offices.

Modules are built offsite and then shipped to the island ready for assembly.

Once on the island they are placed in position and are ready to be moved into.

A crypto friendly jurisdiction

Vanuatu's flag

The island is located in Vanuatu, a country in the South Pacific which is a member of the United Nations. The government supports innovation and has crypto friendly laws, which was the first checkmark in choosing Vanuatu to become the home for Satoshi Island.

After extensive research into the feasibility of creating an entirely crypto-based society, Vanuatu was chosen over all other countries due to the willingness of the government to allow such a place to become a reality.

Although not its own country, Satoshi Island will operate with a level of autonomy, and through our engagement with the Prime Minister, The Ministry of Finance and the Ministry Of Lands, we are assisting the entire country with their goal to embrace blockchain technology.

For those wishing to setup blockchain projects, exchanges, banks or other crypto associated businesses, Vanuatu has no tax on profits, dividends or income for corporations or individuals. There are is no capital gains tax, no withholding tax and no death tax.

Designing a more sustainable future

Renewable energies

Development on the island is being completed with sustainability in mind and 100% of the energy required will be self-generated through renewable methods.

Satoshi Island Modules are designed to have little impact on the environment around them. They have their own solar panels and waste management system and also require far less disruption to the landscape compared to traditional structures due to their ease of installation.

Satoshi Island has dedicated farmland located on mainland Vanuatu, a short boat ride from the island. This will provide Satoshi Islanders with fresh, organic food all year round.

Satoshi Island also has a commitment to responsible development and will therefore offset the carbon footprint by protecting a large amount of trees on the island and planting additional trees elsewhere to replace any removed during the development process.

Advanced NFT Security

As Satoshi Island is a real place and what holders do with their NFTs effect the future of the island, owning a Satoshi Island NFT requires a level of responsibility not usually associated with NFT ownership. With this in mind, Satoshi Island NFTs come with additional security features to help keep them in the right hands in the event of unforeseen circumstances.

"Beneficiaries" is the first of the advanced NFT security features. This feature is intended to work much like a last will and testament, but does not require any third party to authorize the transfer. Beneficiaries are applied to all Satoshi Island NFTs and holders are required to confirm wallet access periodically by calling a function in the smart contract.

If they cannot do so, their beneficiary will be able to claim their NFTs to ensure the assets are not abandoned. In the event that no beneficiary is set, the NFTs will be subject to a decentralized redemption period of 12 months, where previous owners can retrieve their NFT if a mistake was made. Once lapsed, NFTs will be the responsibility of a DAO controlled by the Satoshi Island community.

Another advanced NFT security feature is "Trustees". This works by allowing the holder to nominate up to three addresses to act as co-signers, protecting users against unauthorized transactions. When used, this optional security measure means that even if the holder’s wallet is compromised and all other tokens and NFTs are stolen, their Satoshi Island NFTs will be safe.

Non-Fungible Property Tokens (NFPT)

NFPT logo

Satoshi Island is taking the next step in the evolution of NFTs by introducing a way to turn digital ownership into physical. Anyone can own a piece of the island by acquiring Satoshi Island Land NFTs that can be bought and sold easily, without any of the complications associated with the transfer of traditional real estate.

Each block of land is divided into 10 NFTs which can be converted into an NFPT that entitles holders to the same rights as a physical land title. This includes the right to build homes or apartments which can be lived in or rented out. Holders of NFTs that make up multiple blocks can also combine their NFTs to create larger NFPTs which can then be developed to accommodate larger dwellings.

Owning NFPTs provides a multitude of benefits compared to traditional land ownership but for those who prefer a more conventional recognition of rights, it is even possible for NFPT holders to turn their digital rights into physical documentation on the official land registry of Vanuatu.

Although the NFPT was conceptualized for use on Satoshi Island, the use-case is wide-stretching and could be adapted to work with anything that has a lengthy transfer process. That is why the technology and intellectual property associated with NFPTs will be freely available, under open source license, to private companies or governments which see merit in its application.

Satoshi Island Citizenship NFTs

Satoshi Island Citizenship is the ultimate NFT for any aspiring Satoshi Islander. It provides the holder with exclusive benefits, including the right to live and work on the island, early access to mints, airdrops, advanced NFT security and much more.

Note: Satoshi Island Citizenship NFTs do not grant the holder with a citizenship of Vanuatu

The road to turning Satoshi Island from an idea to reality started years ago by searching for the perfect island, in a jurisdiction where it would be possible to build such a place. Now that the setup is complete, the next step is for the crypto community to start building their new home.
