Achèterons-nous bientôt des logements en bitcoins, la fameuse monnaie virtuelle ? L’agence immobilière Forsyth Real Estate, basée à Sydney, le permets, depuis le 26 mars 2014. C’est la première agence du continent qui accepte la monnaie virtuelle pour l’achat de biens immobiliers.
Un paiement en ligne
Pour payer en bitcoins, les acheteurs passent par la plateforme de paiements en ligne CoinJar, qui convertit la monnaie en dollars en prenant une commission de 0,5 % sur le montant.
Séduire les investisseurs chinois
L’objectif de l’agence immobilière : attirer des investisseurs, notamment chinois. D’une part, en réduisant les frais puisque les échanges en bitcoins échappent aux établissements bancaires, or les frais de transaction entre banques de différents pays sont assez élevés. D’autre part, en adoptant une monnaie déjà prisée des clients asiatiques. A Shanghai, l’agence immobilière Shanda Tiandi propose d’acquérir des logements en bitcoins depuis 2013, d’après Wantchinatimes.
A recent e-mail conversation between Google executives and a curious columnist had indicated the internet giant’s intention to include Bitcoin as a medium of payment for transactions. However, the truth might be far from this and Google may be already on the road to stand up against Bitcoin with its own Google Coin.
Somebody just bought a whole heck of a lot of bitcoins.
Last week, the U.S Marshals’ Service auctioned off 29,656.5 bitcoins it had seized from the Silk Road, the online illicit drug marketplace the feds shutdown this past fall, and on Tuesday, the service said it has moved all those bitcoins—the equivalent of about $19 million—into the online wallet of the lucky auction winner. Lynzey Donahue, a spokeswoman for the service confirmed that the entire stash of seized bitcoins went to a single bidder, but she wouldn’t say who that was—or how much they paid for the bitcoins. Speculation in the bitcoin community is that they went for pretty close to market value. That’s about $640 today.
Bitcoin is the world’s most popular digital currency—a new type of money that can significantly change the way we pay for things and transfer funds from place to place—and the Marshals’ auction generated a lot of interest. The service sold the bitcoins in 10 lots of about 3,000 bitcoins each, and Donahue says that there were a total of 63 bids made by 45 bidders. Bidders put in their bids on Friday, and they were notified about whether they won or not on Monday.
