Puerto Rico and the Internal Revenue Service had created a series of tax incentives to bring in new businesses and people to the island. This had the unintended consequence of attracting a new breed of entrepreneurs – blockchain and crypto investors. Suddenly, Puerto Rico finds itself leading a technological revolution with thousands of people bringing new ideas, connections, and capital to the island.

Miami, Florida – November 4, 2022 – Adam Greenfader’s motivation for Why Puerto Rico Now originates from his first-hand experience of living through climate related tragedies. September 2022 marked the five-year anniversary of Hurricanes Irma and Maria – the worst climate disaster in Puerto Rico’s modern-day history. Adam also had several family members perish in the building collapse in Surfside, Florida. 

New approaches are urgently needed to rebuild Puerto Rico for the long term and create an independent economic model that will last generations. The author lived in Puerto Rico for 25 years and completed over 1 billion dollars in residential, hospitality, and commercial developments in Puerto Rico. Adam continues to work on-island and is a champion for Puerto Rico and avid organizer of Puerto Rico based investment events, on-line seminars, and island promotional publications. 

Why Puerto Rico Now will be soon released in a digital share format or NFT. This new technology will allow those who collaborated in the work to participate in its success. The goal is that Why Puerto Rico Now  becomes a peer-to-peer platform for innovation. 

This book is intended for the 3 million Puerto Ricans that live on island and the 5 million that live off-island primarily in NYC, NJ, and Florida. Why Puerto Rico Now may be of specific interest to the more than 15,000 Act 60 (formerly Act 20/22) grantees who are looking to Puerto Rico as a place to live, invest, or to help economically. 

On November 14, 2022, Adam will be officially launching his new book at the Puerto Rico Builders Association annual conference in San Juan, Puerto Rico. It is also available on Audio read by the author.
