This is the message that echoed across the globe for crypto holders this May, when a 9th-floor, ultra-luxury penthouse at Surfside’s Arte Residences closed using only cryptocurrency for a record price. The 5,067-square-foot, oceanfront residence sits in one of Miami’s most exclusive boutique buildings and features 360-degree water views. Closing at $22.5 million, the penthouse sale represents the most expensive residential crypto deal to date in the U.S. Considering the deal took only 10 days from start to end, it sets a new precedent in the world of real estate closings, demonstrating convenience and speed for both buyers and sellers.

With 125 units already sold out (as of the time of this post), this new launch is garnering a great response. Future residents can expect to share amenities with ESPN co-host Sage...
