Taylor Moore of Canada Would Sell Home for 6,750 Bitcoins
Taylor Moore, of Alberta, Canada, is hoping to be the first person ever to sell his home in Bitcoins: 6,750 Bitcoins, to be exact, or 405,000 Canadian dollars (about $395,000).
"My home is being traded for Bitcoins!" Moore's listing reads. (The home is pictured at left.) "If you had $405k I wouldn't turn you down -- but if a partial or whole transaction is done using Bitcoins, the price can be reduced depending on how many Bitcoins you have to trade."
For those not in the know, a Bitcoin is an experimental, decentralized digital currency that enables instant payments to anyone, anywhere in the world. (They can be purchased here.) In one of the first Bitcoin transactions ever, a man purportedly paid 10,000 Bitcoins for two pizzas in 2010. Depending on location, the exchange rate right now is about $50 to $70 per Bitcoin.
Moore says his "quaint, two bedroom bungalow" boasts beautiful mountain views and 110 feet of "breathtaking" Crowsnest River frontage. It also includes a 2,800-square-foot workshop that Moore says is perfect for the "handyman hobbyist." The properties sit on 2.9 acres of land and is "perfect" for anyone who loves the great outdoors, Moore says. We dig it. Anyone have 6,750 Bitcoins they want to lend us?
