Are you a new Bitcoin millionaire and looking to spend your coin directly? Brooklyn-based real-estate brokerage Brookliv is the first we have seen in the City to accept Bitcoins as rent payment. Owner Ari Weber recently told Inverse:

“We are doing something to attract young clients,” […] “I was asked recently if we accept bitcoin, and so we quickly built the backend to accept bitcoin for rental deposits.” The decision to start accepting the crypto giant came only a few weeks ago, and was put into action swiftly.

With the value of bitcoin swinging thousands of dollars in both directions weekly, this could either be a big win or a big loss, depending on how and when Brookiv cashes out to fiat.

Sudhir Khatwani from The Money Mongers, a Crypto-specific publication and research firm, said, "In the coming years, more and more individuals, as well as Corporates, will start accepting bitcoin and other cryptos as a payment mode."
