Someone Selling A Penthouse In Miami Will Only Accept Bitcoin As Payment
If you have one of those friends who’s constantly coming up with questionable schemes to get rich quick, you’re undoubtedly aware of the recent surge in the popularity of cryptocurrency which can be largely credited to the seemingly endless increase in the price of Bitcoin. While there are plenty of skeptics who say it’s only a matter of time before the Bitcoin bubble pops, there are just as many people who believe the sky is the limit when it comes to the value of the currency.
There are already plenty of stories about people who struck gold thanks to getting in on the ground floor, and it’s only natural that people are scrambling to catch up in the hope Bitcoin continues its meteoric rise. The most conventional way to get involved is simply buying units the various trade platforms that have started to pop up, but some people are turning to more unorthodox methods to get into the Bitcoin game.
Business Insider reports the owner of a baller penthouse in Miami has put the one bedroom apartment on the market for an asking price of 33 bitcoins. If you’re interested in the listing but only happen to have cash on hand, you shouldn’t even bother inquiring, as the seller has made it very clear that the transaction must be carried out in Bitcoin.
The apartment was purchased for $315,000 back in January 2016, and the owner would end up pocketing over $550,000 if the apartment was sold at the time of this writing. I don’t know if the Winklevoss twins are looking to buy a place in Miami, but this might be a good place to start if they are.
