Previous examples

In New York, (East 76th Street near Fifth Avenue), a six-storey apartment with marble and granite floors is already available and can be paid for in bitcoin, ethereum and/or ripple.

Since February, the Coloma River Capital in Washington, DC and the Alex Venditti Group of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage has been accepting bitcoin payments (both partial and total) for each of the properties at St. James Place Condos, featuring white oak floors, stainless steel appliances and recessed lighting.
