Hedge fund manager is accepting bitcoins for his NYC mansion

Roy Niederhoffer, president of R.G. Niederhoffer Capital Management, Inc., listed his $16 million New York City mansion and will accept cash or bitcoin. "I'm a big believer in Bitcoin," Roy said. "I really am so bullish on it, and I want to own more of it." If someone were to purchase the 10,720-square-foot mansion using bitcoin, Roy would pay any obligations, such as closing costs and broker fees, in cash and would choose to hold the cryptocurrency.
