Alexi Development has announced today that it will be accepting payment for their properties using Bitcoin. First introduced in 2009, Bitcoin is a crypto-currency and worldwide payment system. It is the world’s first decentralized digital currency as the system works without a central bank or single administrator.
Tony Vari, President of Alexi Development, said: “We are increasingly known as a forward thinking company that embraces modern technologies. It is a small step for us to accept a new type of payment for our developments.”
Bitcoin has come to prominence in recent days following its market debut on Sunday on the Chicago-based Cboe Global Markets’ (CBEO.O).
The launch marked the first time investors could get exposure to the market via a mainstream regulated exchange.
