Real Estate Brokers Now Accepting Bitcoin

January 3, 2014 | Andy Cush

The real estate firm BOND New York is now accepting Bitcoin as payment for real estate transactions, meaning you could soon be paying broker fees in cryptocurrency.

Apparently unfazed by Bitcoin’s wildly fluctuating valuation (it is doing quite well right now), the firm offered a wholehearted endorsement of the currency. “Bitcoin is a convenient and inexpensive way for our customers to transfer money,” said BOND co-founder Noah Freedman in a release. “So we see it as a win-win situation which will impact the real estate industry.”

No word on Coinye, however; early adopters will just have to wait it out, it seems.
