When one thinks of Houston, Texas, cryptocurrencies isn’t exactly the first thing to pop to mind. Maybe oil and sweltering heat would surface first but Bitcoin is definitely not among the top 5. And yet, one innovative dealership decided to offer its rich customers the chance to purchase the ultimate luxury car with the popular cryptocurrency. If you’re interested in spending your ‘hard mined’ Bitcoin on a Rolls-Royce, you need to look no further than the Post Oak Motors dealership.
Cars being bought or sold for Bitcoin might not be something new. As a matter of fact, when the value of the cryptocurrency went through the roof, a rather common saying in the enthusiast community was related to the Lamborghini brand, some of the early investors even buying cars with the raging bull on the hood, just because they could. However, the situation was different as they had to convert the virtual currency into conventional money and then use it to pay for their car.
In this case, you can and have to use BitPay to send Bitcoin directly to Post Oak Motors, and then head over to pick up your car. “The rising of Bitcoin sparked my interest,” Tilman Fertitta, owner of Post Oak Motors, told TheStreet. “Being a premier luxury car dealer, I always want to offer my customers the very best buying experience and this partnership will allow anyone around the world to purchase our vehicles faster and easier.”
You also might want to hurry up as the most popular cryptocurrency is now on the decline, losing a couple of billions off its market cap in the last few days. The trend is still downwards at the time of this writing but considering how volatile the crypto market is these days, you need to be more careful than ever with your purchases.
