    Meanwhile for certain types of income, Estonia taxes people more than say Sweden, Netherlands or the UK. Taxation is why the digital nomad plan won't take off. Digital nomads aren't about renting a desk and having internet in 2019, it's mostly financial incentives that lure them in.

    This is not a good thing for crying out loud. People love their gadgets until they go wrong or are hacked. As a lawyer, I can say that some things should NOT be done online. Oh, and E-residency is a perfect portal for fraud which the EU will soon shut down.
