The UK is offering to buy $1.5bn in cryptocurrencies to pay for the construction of the Eiffel Tower in Paris.
Euromarket reported the project, the tallest in Europe and the world, was announced by the Government on Friday.
The Eiffels will house the city’s tallest building, the Eneco Tower, and will cost more than $100bn.
The plan was first revealed by French officials in 2015, but was delayed after a delay in its final design due to financial problems.
It now appears to have been approved by the French Government and has been funded by the European Commission.
The project is set to take more than a year to complete.
The BBC reports that Eiffeln Tower has been a source of concern for investors since it was first proposed, due to the large number of workers required to build it and the cost of materials.
The proposed tower will have a total floor area of 4,000,000 sq ft, according to the BBC.
Eiffel’s founder, René Auberge, has said the building is meant to be an architectural gem, but it is also meant to symbolise the Paris skyline.
“We are all part of the Paris project and its a symbol of our city,” he said.
“This is the most beautiful and important building of our time.”
According to the project’s website, the tower will be built to replace the current Eiffelein, the city-wide skyscraper that is due to be demolished in 2021.
The building will include two floors of commercial space, and a large underground parking garage.
