One of the largest real estate companies in Australia, LJ Hooker, is getting ready for a live luxury real estate auction for Bitcoin (BTC) and Binance Coin (BNB) with a live auctioneer.
According to Micky Media, which covered the story on March 18, the group is collaborating with Blockchain Company NuYen and James Pratt Auctions to facilitate online bidding for the five-bedroom house in New South Wales, Australia. The report reads in part:
“The auctioneer will call bids in cryptocurrency, with the price to be converted and displayed in AUD and USD on a live screen. Payments can be made in both bitcoin (BTC) and Binance coin (BNB).”
AUD will be accepted as well
Greg Costello, the head of Nuyen who is also the owner of the property in question, said that apart from Bitcoin and Binance Coin (BnB), Australian Dollar will also be accepted.
