Not the First Time a Real Estate Seller Accepts Crypto
Although the ad of the Stone Jug may be the first example of an actual property offered in exchange for the XRP token that we know of, it is definitely not the first time that a real-estate seller has opted to accept payment in cryptocurrency.
All types of properties have been in the market in recent years, with several incredibly extravagant while some not so luxurious. Previously media outlet NewsBTC has reported on the Russian luxury developer’s property located in the Moscow suburbs. The property developer Kalinka Group wanted $8 million for the open-air Jacuzzi, and a snow room equipped mansion. In September of 2017, the asking price for that property was about 2,000 BTC.
Right at the other side is the terraced house located in Grimsby, UK. This is a much more modest offering, the owner Sean Atkinson wanted 18 BTC in October of 2017 for the two bedroom property. At the time of the report, the freelance yoga expert who owned the property stated that he believed Bitcoin (BTC) would appreciate eventually (backing his decision to accept payment in BTC for the sale of the property).
