Texas startup allows people to buy real estate using cryptocurrency


A Texas startup is allowing people to buy real estate with cryptocurrency through its platform.

MyEListing launched a website where people can use bitcoin or ether to buy Texas-based commercial and residential properties listed on the site.

The business allows deals to close in as little as one day, no fees for listing properties or contacting agents, and buyers and sellers to sign closing documentation via online Zoom calls.

Cryptocurrency exchange Coinbase is partnering with the startup to convert cash into bitcoin or ether and vice versa.
