Alberta man may be first to sell house for bitcoin virtual currency
Like countless young men across North America, Taylor More likes sports and hanging out with friends. And if his latest project pans out he’ll be unique — the first person to sell a house for bitcoins.
Mr. More’s two-bedroom bungalow “with beautiful mountain views” is priced at the equivalent of $405,000 in bitcoins.
A so-called crypto-currency that exists only electronically, bitcoin was created in 2009 and has grown in popularity, the darling of digital enthusiasts and, increasingly, doubtful types who value the anonymity and ease of doing business it provides.
