This Week in Miami Real Estate: Bitcoin for billionaires, big Acqualina sale and more

by Kelly McCabe


Miami continues to make waves in the realm of bitcoin for real estate with a new listing on Fisher Island — an exclusive enclave home to big-name celebrities and ultra-rich — accepting the cryptocurrency. The two-bedroom, two-and-a-half bathroom condo is listed for $2.05 million, or its bitcoin equivalent. If the buyer opts to pay in bitcoin, it would mark the first luxury sale to accept the cryptocurrency. Robert Vole, property owner and broker for The Island Realty, said he decided to accept bitcoin as a way to encourage clients and ensure them it can be a viable option.
