Billionaire luxury real estate developer Nick Candy is reportedly ready to sell his London penthouse apartment for £175 million (roughly $240 million); and interestingly he is willing to consider offers in Bitcoin and Ethereum.
The spectacular 18,000-square-foot apartment, which overlooks Hyde Park, features five bedrooms, a swimming pool, a private spa and gym, two terraces, four allocated car parking spaces, a wine room, a media room, and a cocktail bar.
Those wishing to pay for the apartment with crypto will need to offer around 4000 BTC or 102,000 ETH at current prices (as of 16:00 UTC on April 16).
Apparently, in an email to Bloomberg News, Candy said that he would accept payment in Bitcoin and Ethereum since cryptocurrencies are a “big opportunity”. He also said his apartment is “a world-class real estate asset in the heart of London that will continue to perform as a solid investment for years to come”.
