After the trending deal of the luxury penthouse in Miami, which was sold for $22.5 million and paid in crypto, Now the popular French DJ announced his luxury apartment for sale on Miami Beach and he is open to accept the payment in Bitcoins.
DJ David Guetta is a popular record producer from Paris and owns a Three-bedroom luxury apartment on Miami Beach which is on the 37th floor and is now available for sale for $14 million. The property has a beautiful beachfront and also includes 3 swimming pools facing the ocean. Guetta announced that he will accept the payment for the property in Bitcoin or Ethereum.

The Bitcoin Conference hosted by the city in 2021 brought a major change in the city towards crypto. Recently, Miami gained the attention of the real estate geeks from all over the world after the largest property deal in the city in cryptocurrency, though the agency didn’t share the information about the buyer and the name of the cryptocurrency.
