Bitcoin is growing exponentially in value and mainstream popularity, and what people are willing to sell in exchange for the digital currency is getting bigger and grander.
In recent news, a homeowner in Miami has listed her penthouse, valued at $547,000, for sale. The twist is that she’s only accepting Bitcoin as the form of payment.
So, for 33 bitcoins, the listing shares that this fantastic penthouse in Miami could become yours.
The gorgeous penthouse boasts one bedroom, 1.5 bathrooms and can be found on real estate sites such as Coldwell Banker and Remax. The condominium it belongs to offer amenities such as an infinity pool, fitness center and party room.
The listing on Redfin, another real estate listing site, explains that the owner is only accepting Bitcoin, and no other form of payment. Redfin is not set up to list properties according to Bitcoin asking price, so the property appears to be listed at $33, certainly an attention grabber if you are looking for a place under $50,000 there.
This is not the only intriguing big ticket item being sold in exchange for cryptocurrency. Bitcoin enthusiasm is sweeping the globe.
Plenty of wealthy Bitcoin owners have been purchasing extravagant cars over the past few months, but this week, Litecoin gets to share the spotlight in large ticket item purchases.
Bitcoin.com recently shared that an extremely wealthy Chinese millionaire just arranged to purchase four rare F1 cars from the U.K.’s Heritage F1 dealership with Litecoin.
The cars are priced at $5.3 million, altogether, but the dealership has agreed to accept the payment in the form of cryptocurrency. The first car in the group is a 2011 Sauber Ferrari C30 that placed fifth at the Monaco Grand Prix last year. All of the cars are capable of racing and track-worthy.
A London art dealer, Eleesa Dadiani, brokered the transaction. Her gallery allows for cryptocurrency payments including Bitcoin, Ripple, Ethereum, Litecoin and Dash.
In regards to the sale, Eleesa explained, “We are hugely excited to be conducting the sale of these exquisite machines in cryptocurrency. Cryptocurrency is not just about ‘getting rich’ – it is about facilitating trade and investment in a more transparent, decentralized way.”
Mike O’Connor, the founder of Heritage F1, went on to say, “The sale of this breath-taking collection of Formula One cars, in cryptocurrency, will set a new precedent and open up a whole new international market to us. There is increasing demand for the purchase of luxury assets in cryptocurrency, and we are confident that this sale, in partnership with Dadiani Syndicate, is just the first of many to come.”
