Welcome to the world of cryptocurrency.
Not long ago we told you about a guy selling a McLaren 720S in Bitcoin only. The exact price, depending on the value of Bitcoin at the time, was around 30 Bitcoin. At the time of that writing, one Bitcoin was worth over $14,600. Do the math. And now we’ve learned about another two instances of Bitcoin being the chosen form of payment. This Bugatti Chiron and Pagani Huayra were both purchased, according to the DuPont Registry, from Pagani Newport Beach using Bitcoin.
All told, that’s over $6 million worth of hypercars bought with Bitcoin. And some say Bitcoin is a bubble. Perhaps it is, but those who have it are clearly taking advantage of its value. The Huayra sold is the Americano with the Tempesta Package while the Chiron features an all-black exterior and a grey/black interior. High-end car dealerships were some of the first to begin accepting Bitcoin as payment a couple of years ago, so it’s really not at all surprising to see this trend continue. Remember the guy who back in 2010 bought two pizzas for 10,000 Bitcoin? Things have dramatically changed in less than a decade.
