Westbury Investments will now allow its investors and buyers to use digital currency as a mode of payment for buying properties in Dubai UAE for its ongoing projects in partnership with Dubai’s award winning & most emerging developer Samana Developers.
Westbury Investments move is a big boon to Cryptocurrency and Blockchain legitimacy. It also galvanizes Westbury’s reputation as a fintech pioneer.
With the aggressive emergence of innovative and reputable Blockchain platforms, UK has established itself as a major Fintech and Blockchain hub in Europe.
