Following in the footsteps of El Salvador, which pioneered the concept of Bitcoin-backed bonds, Montenegro is now exploring the potential of Bitcoin Hydro Bonds, a groundbreaking initiative that leverages the country’s abundant hydroelectric resources.

Discovering Montenegro

Montenegro, a small Balkan country nestled between Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia, Kosovo, and Albania, boasts stunning landscapes that range from rugged mountains to pristine Adriatic coastline. Its rich history is evident in its ancient towns such as Kotor.

In recent years, the country has been gaining attention as a tourist destination, drawing visitors with its picturesque beaches, charming coastal towns, and opportunities for outdoor activities like hiking, sailing, and skiing. Despite its small size, it offers a wealth of experiences, whether exploring its historic sites, enjoying its natural beauty, or enjoying its immersive culture.

In June 2006, Montenegro asserted its independence from Serbia and Montenegro after a decisive referendum, establishing the modern-day entities of Montenegro and Serbia. As a result, it now stands as one of the most recently recognized sovereign nations globally, marking its emergence on the international stage.

Notably, the country is also known for the arrest of Do Kwon, the founder of the cryptocurrency scam Terra/Luna. Do Kwon was arrested in the Balkan country and expects extradition to the U.S. or South Korea.

Following El Salvador’s Steps

El Salvador’s Volcano Bonds were introduced by the president of El Salvador, Nayib Bukele.

“Volcano Bonds, more accurately referred to as Volcano Tokens, are digital assets that act as government bonds. Essentially, this allows the government of El Salvador to raise funds for public investment.

In the case of Volcano Tokens, the “bonds” are backed by bitcoin.”

In a similar vein, Montenegro is exploring the concept of “Hydro Bonds,” capitalizing on its abundant water resources to generate excess energy through hydroelectric stations. By tapping into this renewable energy source, it aims to create a sustainable pathway toward economic freedom.

Welcoming Bitcoin

In December 2023, JAN3, a pioneering company specializing in nation-state adoption of Bitcoin, initiated discussions with the Prime Minister, Milojko Spajić, regarding the potential integration of Bitcoin mining to power the bonds. 

Prince Phillip of Serbia, the Chief Strategy Officer for JAN3, emphasized Montenegro government’s growing interest in Bitcoin and its potential applications, from establishing Bitcoin-friendly communities to incorporating bitcoin into national reserves. The collaboration between JAN3 and Montenegro underscores a shared vision of leveraging Bitcoin as a catalyst for economic freedom.

At the Bitcoin Oasis 2024 conference that took place in Dubai, Prince Phillip shared the following insights in an interview with Stephan Livera:

“Also we’re in conversations with Montenegro, with the Prime Minister Montenegro who’s a friend, and he’s into crypto he’s not fully orange-pilled yet but he understands he gets it.. And  last June we had a meeting with him and we talked about loads of different things, from a community like a Bitcoin Beach…To putting Bitcoin on their reserves, to mining it. So I think we are now going to go in a meeting with him in the next couple of months…To talk about some mining projects”

Conclusion

Montenegro’s embrace of Hydro Bitcoin Bonds heralds a new era of innovation and progress, positioning the country at the forefront of the global Bitcoin revolution. The country paves the way for a sustainable future powered by renewable energy and Bitcoin mining.

This is a paradigm shift towards a more resilient financial ecosystem. With its breathtaking natural beauty and progressive outlook, this Balkan country stands poised to become a key player in the industry.
