Over the past few years, people – and the market – have had an on again/off again, love/hate relationship with cryptocurrency, which is a form of digital payment that’s created using encryption algorithms. While lately, the love affair appears to have cooled, a house for sale is turning heads thanks to its, well, vivid ode to the virtual currency.
The four-bedroom, three-bedroom residence in North Hollywood, California, is listed for $1.2 million and has an interior filled with a peculiar “crypto”-adjacent decor, including a dining room featuring “Bored Ape Yacht Club” wallpaper.
The limited non-fungible tokens collection, which on the surface looks like a rejected Warner Bros. cartoon pitch, is composed of 10,000 NFTs and is considered the most expensive collection on the crypto market, according to Cnet.com.
While the photos show the decoration choice clearly, the listing on Realtor.com doesn’t mention it.
“The home has recessed lighting and natural lighting that shines through the entire home,” the listing describes. “As you enter the home there is a well-maintained kitchen with an open floor that leads to the living room and dining room. There are two bedrooms through the hallway just off the living room.”
There are other features that would attract a keen potential buyer:
Detached bonus rooms
The 2,012-square-foot home caught the attention of Zillow Gone Wild, a popular social media real estate page, and fans immediately zoomed in on the apparent decor.
“It happened,” the caption on the page said. “Someone made a Crypto House in North Hollywood, CA. The walls alone must be worth billions of ETH.”
“Sure, it’s 2,012 square feet TODAY. Next week, it will be down to 725 square feet,” someone joked.
“This has Airbnb written all over it. Fun house to party in. Hard house to live in,” another observed.
“Does part of the square footage disappear like crypto continues to do?” one person asked.
“I don’t understand this crypto stuff. Maybe it’s best that way,” someone noted.
“You don’t actually get to live in the house, you just get a piece of paper saying you live there,” another tweeted. Somebody else lives there full time.
The listing is held by Llari De Paz Zelaya with Realty Group Advisors.
