It’s a typical Westport real estate listing:
“5 beds, 4.5 baths in 4200 sq ft on a quiet cul de sac street close to train, shopping, restaurants in a town that offers a progressive lifestyle.”
But the rest of the write-up for the 5 Ridgewood Lane home is unlike anything you’ve ever read:
Currently accepting CRYPTOCURRENCY. Climb into your very own Crypto Cryb in NYC’s backyard and diversify your portfolio. Blockchain Homes presents its first residential property to be offered for purchase in cryptocurrency. Bring your Bit Coin or Etherum to the one and only Westport, Connecticut modern farmhouse designed and inspired by the crypto climate of a cutting edge lifestyle…. Be the first to make a Blockchain Home purchase.
So how much does it cost?
“250BTC or 3,030ETH.”
That sound you just heard is thousands of local realtors going, “Oh. My. God.”
