BRIGHTON, EAST SUSSEX £500,000
A luxury apartment on the 20th floor of Sussex Heights in Brighton, famously the tallest residential building on the south coast, is hoping to make history having been put up for sale with a cryptocurrency price tag. Only the third UK property where the owner would prefer to be paid in Ethereum or Bitcoin (but will accept GPB), it’s on the market for £500,000 or the crypto equivalent, currently 10 Bitcoin. The seller is a tech entrepreneur who has been involved in new digital currencies for several years and the apartment is suitably swanky – two bedrooms, a large living room looking out onto the sea, steam room and spa bathroom, and integrated touch-of-a-button technologies.
