Crypto-Currency Castle Consummated

By Joseph Vaughn-Perling


Grand Castle Malla Becomes the Bitcoin Supernode Perpetual Conference Center

One thing we can do to beautify this planet, is preserve our valuable heritage, at times enabling it to shine even brighter. Whether it�s centuries-old buildings or natural landscapes, they can definitely provide some of the most conducive environments for great minds to connect over joy, wonder, play and rich array of experiences.

This week, February 28, 2014 marks the culmination of a momentous and historic transaction, a castle bought with Bitcoin earnings and dedicated to the support of Bitcoin innovation.  Located in Estonia near the Baltic Sea the site is easily found by plugging Malla, Estonia into Google Maps and zooming in on the largest building you find, and there is it. 

This Manor House was built in the 1600 and has been updated many times through the centuries, most recently to remove all the old soviet era accoutrements, reinforcing all the structures and updating the electricity and plumbing.  The grounds include forests, gardens, and a number of support buildings which were formerly servant quarters, barns, stables and such.

While there are other budding centres of Bitcoin activity, and embassies in each of the great cities of the planet, this grand edifice stands unique as a philosophical philanthropic institution removed from the busy business of city commerce and provides a gathering nexus for the Bitcoin community to indulge in a more organic lifestyle.  These accommodations are planned for Bitcoin dignitaries to engage each other in luxurious surrounds conducive to respite and retreat, contemplation, and the more strategic thinking such environs are destined to inspire.

The new Baltic Bitcoin Baron is none other than the prestigious Risto Pietila.  This new nobleman successfully navigated the treacherous business of precious metal investing through his innovative startup, and thrived.  He then catapulted his fortunes through rigorous mathematical analysis and sagacious trading of Bitcoin.  This magnanimous endeavor was enabled through the profits that ensued. Risto�s own rag to riches progression is appropriate to the enterprise of castellan restoration and he also personifies the progression of private currencies through the ages and into the future.  It is right and proper that he be the man to cement this Bitcoin Supernode foundation in the ancient stones of Estonia.

The selection of location, Estonia, is the EU country with probably the most freedom.  According to the CIA�s world fact book, its small public sector and vibrant private sector boasts one of the highest per-capita incomes and GDP growth of Europe. Their hands-off approach to Bitcoin presents not only a magnetic attraction for monetary innovation, but also an expansive outer wall outside the formidable walls of this financial fortress. There is no doubt that these halls will host the most illuminated thinkers of our collective crypto-currency future for many decades to come.
