OK, to be clear, I didn't pay for the house in Bitcoin. However, I did liquidate a percentage of my holdings for the purpose of purchasing a home for my wife and me.
We're trying to have kids, and we want one of us to stay home with the kids. We found a house where I could afford the monthly mortgage+insurance+tax payment completely on my own! I did have to prove ownership over the coins for a certain period, which, if any of you out there are looking to buy a house with your newly generated wealth, PM me and I can talk to you about what that was like.
We were able to get an FHA loan, which limited our down payment. That Bitcoin-thing in which I so adamantly believed enabled me to buy our home! A home for our future children! And in the process, both real estate agents were really interested to hear more about it, and I educated them both! In fact, I gifted my real estate agent a small bit of Bitcoin and now he's obsessed.
Regardless of what happens from here, I'm so grateful for this Bitcoin experiment, and I'm sure my future children will be as well!
