A condo for sale in Miami hit the market earlier this month accepting only Bitcoin, grabbing headlines as one of the only U.S. real estate listings to limit itself to the cryptocurrency.
The one-bedroom pad at 480 Northeast 30th Street listed on Dec. 8 for 33 Bitcoin, or about $550,000 at the time, according to the listing agent. But as of Tuesday, 33 Bitcoin is now equal to about $603,000. In dollar terms, that’s a jump in the asking price of about 10 percent in less than two weeks.

Compass’ new development team walked away from the assignment at Tessler Development’s 33-story, 72-unit tower at 172 Madison Avenue, a Compass spokesperson told The Real Deal.
“At Compass, we put our people first. At the request of our team, we made the unusual decision to resign the project,” said a company spokesperson, who declined to comment further.
Tessler and his representatives did not respond to requests for comment, but sources told TRD the fission was a result of the developer’s expectations for pricing on the project and what the Compass brokers believed the market would deliver.
“I think there was a difference of opinion on the marketing,” said one source who is not involved in the project. “Compass probably wanted to reduce pricing to increase the velocity of sales, and Tessler said he’s not going to do it.”
This is not the first shakeup at the project.
