A 17,000-square-foot Renaissance-era mansion in the heart of Rome will be auctioned off Thursday. Got $44 million or about 7,200 bitcoin (BTC) to spare? It could be yours.
That’s right, you can use bitcoin to bid on this 11-bedroom, 15.5-bathroom, Italian heritage site mansion designed and built by Giacomo Della Porta, a 16th-century architect and sculptor who worked with Michelangelo, Quartz reports.

The reserve price is set at 38 million euro, which is $44 million, or around 7,200 bitcoin (at least as of Monday). Read more here.
