Despite the Covid-19 pandemic, home prices in the US still hit a record. This boom coincided with the recent rally in the price of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. Both trends are converging in Miami, which is trying to position itself as the “cryptocurrency capital” of the US.

Here, real estate mogul Marc Roberts also accepts virtual currency payments for his apartments. He said he sold a penthouse for $22 million in virtual currency.
