Bitcoin and Portuguese Golden Visa

I’m looking for a way to get a Golden Visa in Portugal all while keeping investments in Bitcoin.
Currently, I see 2 options:

  1. Creating a company, putting 350k there and making it buy BTC on its balance sheet (Microstrategy-like move if you heard of it). This is a personal solution I’m currently considering.

  2. Setting up a VC fund that invests in Bitcoin. This is more of a mass solution to other Bitcoin locos who flock to Portugal for 0% cap gains on crypto. One potential caveat here is that fund has to invest 60% in Portuguese companies. It could be an ETF-style fund that puts 60% in real estate and 40% in Bitcoin, for example.

If there are any lawyers who are interested in giving Legal Opinion on that, and potentially working on setting this up, please get in touch with me.
@guifig do you have any thoughts on this?

Or you can buy a property and apply for non habitual residence status. You pay no tax on overseas income (outside portugal) for 10 years.

How is this related? Does getting residency through bitcoin prevents from getting NHR?

I know there’s been some companies where are you can make loans with bitcoin to secure real estate. It seems like this could be done through a similar platform but working with Portuguese companies.
