You can now buy your new Lamborghini with Bitcoin!
One US-based dealer has confirmed they will take Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies as payment
Unless you've been living under a rock recently, you'll have seen the news reports that the web-based cryptocurrency Bitcoin has been enjoying a ridiculously large surge in value at the moment, prompting many of us to smack our heads for not investing back in 2009/10.
Well, it is enjoying such a run, that various shops, stores and outlets are now accepting Bitcoin as a valid form of payment, including Lamborghini of Newport Beach, California.
You can now purchase your next supercar with various cryptocurrencies
Bitcoin is not the only cryptocurrency that they are now accepting, however, it may be best that you call to confirm which currencies are valid, before making a purchase.
Despite the news, this isn't the first time that this particular dealership has accepted crypto as payments, as back in 2013 the same dealership accepted Bitcoin as payment for a Tesla Model S.
Despite that, this is the first time the dealership has openly advertised that is it accepting this alternative method of payment. It is certainly interesting, however, given the volatility of the coin - while it has enjoyed an extended bull run recently, it has also had some big crashes, meaning the dealership could well find themselves out of pocket if they don't time their transactions right.
Could this be the start of a new wave of Bitcoin being accepted as a currency? Or is this just a way for Lamborghini Newport Beach to jump on a trend? Let us know your thoughts below.
