Buying a yacht for bitcoins

The first recorded bitcoin transaction was made by a Florida-based programmer, Laszlo Hanyecz, when he bought two pizzas for 10,000 BTC ($30). Today, those two pizzas would be worth about $565 million. Bitcoin's move into the physical world has unlocked the true potential of digital currencies and caused a global frenzy.

Cryptocurrency can be used to pay for real estate, cars, art and now even yachts. Some yachts are officially available for purchase with bitcoins:

• 72m Azteca by CRN is the largest yacht officially offered for sale for bitcoins.
