The most significant sale-purchase transaction for bitcoins took place in the USA
An anonymous buyer in the US became the owner of the estate in one of the most prestigious areas of Miami. As it became known, for his purchase, he paid off with crypto currency. For 455 bitcoins or about 6 million dollars, he became the owner of a spacious house with seven bedrooms, a swimming pool, and a basketball court. Brown Harris Stevens represented the interests of the buyer in the transaction. They also told that their client is one of the very first investors in bitcoins.

A lot more is known about the seller of the estate. He became a trader Michael Komaransky, who is also not indifferent to the digital currency. The house he bought four years ago for 4.7 million dollars. It is important to note that even then he wanted to conduct a deal using bitcoins, but in 2014, crypto money was not so popular, so he had to use regular bills.

The house in Miami was put up for sale as early as September 2017. However, it was not so easy to find a buyer who was also determined to pay by bitcoins. According to realtors, the purchase of real estate took place in several stages, and during this time the course of the cryptocurrency changed many times.
