[Slashdot] - Bezos-Backed Real Estate App To Accept Bitcoin as Payment


Recommended Posts

La Haus, a Latin American property tech startup backed by Bezos Expeditions, said it will accept Bitcoin for real estate transactions, adding to the region's growing adoption of the cryptocurrency as a means of payment. From a report: The company, which allows users to purchase homes through an app, will allow buyers to pay with the digital currency, starting with a housing development in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. It will eventually open the rest of its inventory of more than 80,000 properties to Bitcoin, according to the company. "We think that Bitcoin will be the reserve currency of the future," said Rodrigo Sanchez-Rios, president and co-founder of La Haus, in an interview. "At our core, we're a tech company. It's natural for us to be pioneers with this technology." The company is partnering with Los Angeles-based payment processor OpenNode to allow for transactions both on-chain and over the Lightning Network, which was designed to make purchases quicker and easier. La Haus will act as an intermediary, paying the sellers in fiat. The company has not decided how much Bitcoin it will keep on its balance sheets, he said.
