When I first heard about Bitcoin several years ago, I was skeptical, to say the least. The news at that time focused on the nefarious aspects of the cryptocurrency. It seemed like every week another “hack” occurred, and very few people seemed to understand how it worked in the first place.
As time went on, however, my views began to shift. An increasing number of big-name investors like Tim Draper and Marc Andreessen began to throw their support behind Bitcoin’s potential. Even major corporations like Microsoft, IBM, and NYSE publicly announced they were holding their own experiments.
Like many entrepreneurs and executives, I slowly became certain that this technology wasn’t going away. And with so many respected and intelligent people focused on building the technology’s infrastructure, it’s now become too popular to ignore.
At Canter Brokerage, we pride ourselves on being ahead of the curve. After numerous discussions and endless research, we are now accepting bitcoin if our clients desire.
An Entire New Class of Wealthy Has Arrived
As countless articles have highlighted over the years, cryptocurrency’s rise has led to the creation of an entirely new class of wealthy individuals.
While wealth used to be generated over a long period of time, early adopters in these technologies have seen investments of hundreds and thousands of dollars turn into millions and billions of dollars in just a few short years.
While you may not agree with or understand the technology here, it’s impossible to dispute the fact that this group of individuals are unique and will need the exact same access to homes and resources that traditional investors have access to.
Since many of these individuals hold most of their wealth digitally, offering their home for sale in Bitcoin provides them with a method to safely convert their digital holdings into a stable traditional investment vehicle: real estate.
With that said…
