A user of revolico.com, an online sales website established in Cuba, offered his Audi-brand car, model A4, in exchange for $ 60,000 paid in bitcoin (BTC). It is the only vehicle on the platform that accepts this payment method, at least expressly in the title of the publication.
In the description of the article, the seller clarifies that he accepts other cryptocurrencies as payment, as long as it is an equivalent amount in BTC.
According to Cuban media, the seller stated in his publication that he wanted a bitcoin for the car. In fact, he recommended his potential buyers to take advantage of the opportunity to acquire the vehicle when the BTC drops in price “And so he buys it cheaper.” However, when reviewing the article on the website currently, this comment is not appreciated. It may have been deleted or it may be responses given directly to someone in the reviewer.
When comparing the price of the car, it may sound a bit over the top. Especially since it is a used vehicle that is more than a decade old and that in countries like Venezuela or Colombia, under similar conditions, can be around USD 12,000. However, compared to the prices of other vehicles on the same website, you could say that it has consistency.
