The First Swiss Villa Sale in Bitcoins


For the first time to date, a villa in Switzerland is available for purchase with Bitcoin as a mean of payment.

Stefan Christiani, a 36-year-old Swiss resident, is determined to leverage the potential of the cryptocurrency by organising the first sale of a house in Switzerland paid for Bitcoins ever.

“As a student of Computer Science, I strongly believe that Bitcoin as a virtual currency has significant advantages over traditional flat currencies like the dollar, the euro, and other common currencies,” said Christiani. “Bitcoin is quick, simple, safe, requires no banking infrastructure, and will, from my point of view, revolutionize the way we exchange money.” he added.

The owner of this villa is a friend of Christiani. It was built back in 1954 and embodies a typical Mediterranean style on a 6,460-square-foot lot. The living area is about 1,700-squarefoot, with 7.5 rooms and a covered swimming pool. The property is located in the town of Ascona with an enviable view of the Maggiore Lake. And the villa’s price has been officially listed at 829 bitcoins.
