When Facebook whistleblower Frances Haugen isn’t flying around the world urging lawmakers to regulate her ex-employer, she’s apparently living off little-taxed cryptocurrency profits in her new home of Puerto Rico.

“For the foreseeable future, I’m fine, because I did buy crypto at the right time,” Haugen said in an interview with the New York Times published Sunday when asked how she’s supported herself since leaving Facebook.

Her move to Puerto Rico in March was motivated by a desire to join her “crypto friends” on the island, as well as a health condition, Haugen added. 

Puerto Rico — a US territory known for its beaches, rainforests and Spanish Colonial architecture — has become a hub for cryptocurrency investors like Haugen in recent years thanks largely to its status as a tax haven.
