A Canadian real estate development firm has announced that from today on, they’ll be accepting deposits for their properties for sale.
Quantum Properties, based in Abbotsford, Canada, is the first large property developer to make such a move.
“We’ve decided as of today that we’ll take deposits using bitcoin,” said the company’s CEO, Diane Delves in an interview with Business in Vancouver.
“I’ve been looking at bitcoin for quite a while. I like to try to keep up with current trends,” she stated. “Why not get in on it?”
In a tweet to newsBTC, Quantum said “We believe in the value of #bitcoin”.
The firm has condos available at the following properties:
- Mahogany at Mill Lake, Gladwin Road, Abbotsford (78 of 156 units available)
- Orchid Riverside, Wilson Avenue & Reeve Street, Port Coquitlam (69 of 109 units available)
- Abacus Uptown, Campbell Avenue, Abbotsford (68 of 90 units available)
There haven’t yet been any deposits made using the digital currency, but it’s only been one day, so this is something that’s obviously going to need some time to gauge whether or not it’s the ‘right move’, so to speak. (via Business In Vancouver)
