With the cheapest condo listed for more than $10 million, Miami’s Arte Surfside luxury apartments are now aimed at crypto millionaires and billionaires. Luxury Miami apartment Arte Surfside will now accept cryptocurrency as a form of payment for its remaining luxury residences — including the Villa Nove penthouse, currently listed for $38 million.
Chairman of Sapir Corp Alex Sapir said the company supported Mayor Francis Suarez’s vision to make Miami a cryptocurrency and technology hub.
“As the most exclusive luxury building in the city, we’re positioning ourselves for a future where half the world’s billionaires are crypto billionaires, which will happen once Bitcoin reaches $200,000. With cryptocurrencies already creating incredible worldwide wealth, it’s real estate that will sustain that wealth and provide buyers with a legacy.”
Over the last year, Suarez has made it clear that he wants to landmark Miami as the country’s crypto center and he hailed Arte’s announcement as the first of many.
A resolution for a new cryptocurrency task force passed on May 6, looking at the feasibility of allowing the Miami-Dade county to accept cryptocurrencies as a form of payment for taxes, fees, and services. Next month, Miami will host the world’s largest Bitcoin conference, Bitcoin 2021 conference.
