Nick Candy, a billionaire luxury real estate developer, is allegedly preparing to sell his London penthouse apartment for £175 million or 4,017.93 Bitcoin (approximately $240 million), and he is eager to entertain Bitcoin and Ethereum deals.
The duplex penthouse, according to The Telegraph, is part of the luxurious residential and shopping complex Hyde Park One, which is situated in London’s Knightsbridge neighbourhood.
The stunning 18,000-square-foot apartment overlooking Hyde Park has five suites, a swimming pool, a private spa and gym, two terraces, four assigned parking spaces, a wine lounge, a television room, and a cocktail bar.
Those wanting to pay for cryptocurrency would need to bid about 4000 BTC or 102,000 ETH at current rates (as of 16:00 UTC on April 16).
Candy reportedly said in an email to Bloomberg News that he will welcome payment in Bitcoin and Ethereum because cryptocurrencies are a “big opportunity.” He also said that his apartment is “a world-class real estate asset in the heart of London that will continue to perform as a solid investment for many years to come.”
