One of the largest developers in Brazil announced the acceptance of bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies.
Gafisa – one of the largest developers in Brazil – announces the acceptance of BTC, ADA, XRP, MATIC. Customers – ordinary residents of the country – will be able to pay in cryptocurrency for the purchase of apartments in new buildings.
This solution looks attractive to foreign investors – they will be able to quickly and safely conduct real estate transactions in Brazil.
Despite the fact that the Central Bank of Brazil – Banco central do Brasil – does not recognize cryptocurrency as a means of payment, the digital asset market in Latin America is widely developed, and the coins themselves find real application.
CEO of Gafisa, Guilherme Augusto Soares Benevides, makes the comment:
Bitcoin is the largest cryptocurrency by market value, and it is a currency whose popularity is growing every day, as well as the possibilities of its use are expanding. There is a natural tendency to digitize payments. If you stop thinking that the Central Bank will launch a digital real in 2022, then we can conclude that in fact digital currencies are increasingly present in the world.
The transaction itself is as follows. Gafisa invites the client to fill out an intention form. The company analyzes the form and if the document does not raise questions, accepts the offer. Further, a potential buyer pays the required amount for the apartment to the broker’s wallet, and the broker is already responsible for the successful conduct of the transaction for the purchase of real estate.
