Crypto sales in Miami continue to become more mainstream as the city continues to make itself a Crypto City and emerging tech hub. Unit 2202 at One Thousand Museum by Zaha Hadid Architects has sold for $7.2 million in the cryptocurrency Ethereum, becoming the most expensive crypto currency real estate purchase to date in the City of Miami. It is also second most expensive in Miami-Dade County behind a penthouse at Arte Surfside that sold last month for $22.5 million. Keith Marks and Sonia Toth of The Keith & Sonia Team at Brown Harris Stevens were the exclusive listing agents.
The 4 bedroom 5.5 bathroom northeast corner unit spans 4,600 SF. The residence offers far reaching views of Biscayne Bay and Miami Beach and overlooks cultural landmarks including Perez Art Museum Miami (PAMM) and Phillip and Patricia Frost Museum of Science. The residence also features spacious balconies and the finest attention to detail and state of the art appliances and lighting, including Poliform, Gaggenau, SubZero, Dornbracht, Petzgold and Creston.
One Thousand Museum is regarded as the essence of unprecedented fusion of art, architecture, design and location within Downtown Miami. Designed by famed architect Zaha Hadid, the building is home to the highest helipad in the US other than Los Angeles. Celebrity residents include David and Victoria Beckham.
Cryptocurrency has emerged as a viable form of payment for real estate and Miami has been at the cornerstone of crypto becoming mainstream. Miami is quickly becoming a cryptocurrency and blockchain hub led by Mayor Francis Suarez. Arte by Antonio Citterio in Surfside became the first new construction project to accept cryptocurrency for real estate followed by E11EVEN Hotel & Residences. A unit would later sell for a record $22.5 million in cryptocurrency at Arte.
