The document assesses the benefits and issues that transferring a property for crypto could pose for both owners and buyers. One of the main advantages is avoiding the associated costs of transferring and paying with fiat currency, especially when the properties in question are located abroad.
Issues outlined in the report include the low availability of mortgage lenders willing to accept cryptocurrency as a deposit and the current tight regulatory framework in countries like the UK, which could bring additional paperwork to the process.
