Use BitCoins to Buy Luxury Condo in Manhattan's Trump SoHo

Posted: May. 15th, 2013  |  By Michael Pearse

Well, there you have it, BitCoin is gaining legitimacy to the point that you can now buy a luxury condominium in New York City for the small-sounding price of 24,700 BitCoins. Just so you know, though, that equates to almost $2 million... or a lot more depending how the internet feels at any given moment... or a lot less.

A luxury condo in the Trump SoHo can be yours — all for the low price of around 24,700 Bitcoins.

That’s by far the biggest-ticket item ever offered for sale in the virtucal currency. “The most expensive purchase was a car for around $28,000," Vitalik Buterin, a writer at Bitcoin magazine, told the Daily News.

He called the multimillion-dollar Trump listing an "unprecedented" move.

An anonymous seller has listed the one bedroom, 1.5 bath deluxe suite on a bitcoin luxury marketplace listing site, BitPremier, which offers high-end goods and properties available for purchase exclusively by using the digital currency.
