French DJ David Guetta has sold his $14 million Miami beachfront apartment and will accept payments in Bitcoin (BTC) and Ether (ETH).
It has been reported that the three-bedroom 2,528 square foot beachfront property is on the 37th floor of the luxury Setai Residences condominium complex and is on sale for $14 million, or around 380 BTC at today’s prices.
However, the property boasts two master suites, a panoramic view of the Miami skyline, 24-hour hotel service, and amenities, including three oceanfront swimming pools, a sauna, and a spa, to name a few. The sale is being hosted by Freud Group, a real estate investment firm that caters to celebrities.
In September, he signed a partnership with the decentralized virtual reality platform Sensorium Galaxy. Guetta’s decision to accept crypto appears to be his own choice, as other properties listed on the website contain no mention of crypto.
The report said that Guetta, who has multiple songs with more than 1 billion views on YouTube, bought the property for $9.5 million from New York billionaire Richard LeFrak back in 2018 and stands to make $4.5 million from the sale.
Last month, Miami’s Arte Surfside luxury apartments, a complex that’s home to Ivanka Trump, announced it would accept payments in multiple cryptocurrencies, such as Bitcoin and Ether. On May 27, the firm sold a four-bedroom penthouse for $22.5 million that was paid entirely in crypto. It is reportedly the largest crypto-based real estate sale to date, however, the firm didn’t reveal the name of the buyer or which crypto was used to purchase the property.
Thus, Miami, which just hosted the 2021 Bitcoin conference, has become a crypto-friendly city in 2021 due in part to its mayor and Bitcoin HODLer Francis Suarez.
