The crypto-verse has garnered support from an array of celebrities. Rock legend and bassist of the popular band, Kiss, Gene Simmons also jumped onto the crypto bandwagon. Simmons time and again voiced his interest in crypto. Now, further elevating his inclination towards the industry, he decided to accept crypto payments for the property that he was selling.
The mansion sits in Ascaya community, Las Vegas, and is on the market for $13,500,000. The Kiss bassist’s property stretches across 11,000 square feet well above the valley. Combining crypto and real estate, the Kiss co-singer opted to accept payments in either Bitcoin [BTC], Litecoin [LTC], Polkadot [DOT], Try.Finance, Aave or Uniswap [UNI]. A combination of all these assets would also be accepted.
Furthermore, Berkshire Hathaway Home Services’ Evangelina Duke-Petroni was overseeing this listing. She pointed out that those who wish to purchase the property in crypto should be “verified through closing costs, including taxes and commissions.”
Elaborating on his latest crypto-friendly move, Simmons told BlabberMouth,
“I have been an outspoken proponent of cryptocurrency from the beginning. It is the future of money, and it just makes sense to offer interested parties the option of using cryptocurrency to purchase the estate.”
Gene Simmons done embracing Dogecoin?
Last year around this time, Simmons went on to share multiple tweets in support of Elon Musk’s favorite crypto, Dogecoin [DOGE]. The rock legend revealed that he bought a lot of Dogecoin because he believes that it would go up. He even went on to share a picture with Musk and Doge.
Despite his inclination towards the meme coin, it wasn’t on the list of cryptocurrencies Simmons was accepting for his Las Vegas mansion. This further got the community speculating that the Kiss bassist was done embracing DOGE.
Additionally, Simmons isn’t the only celebrity to accept crypto for their property. Last June, French DJ David Guetta announced that he would accept Bitcoin and Ether for his Miami apartment.
