Global real estate platform Propy has announced that they will be accepting Ripple [XRP], Bitcoin [BTC], and Ethereum [ETH] as payment for one of the listings on their site. This marks the beginning of their adoption of cryptos as payment for real estate.
The offer in question is for a piece of land measuring around 27 acres, or close to 100 sq. km, in the heart of Silicon Valley. The property is located on Shannon Road, on top of the Los Gatos Hills. The offer is exclusive to Propy and is on sale for $16 million.
Investors can build up to 10 homes on the property, which overlooks some of the “most pristine lands in Northern California”. The soil of the property is said to be ideal for growing a vineyard, an olive farm or horses. It is close to the headquarters of prominent tech companies such as Netflix, Google, and Apple.
The property also boasts proximity to prominent educational institutions such as Stanford University and Harker, America’s top private high school. The official listing says:
“This is one of the largest pieces of land left that are for sale in Silicon Valley. Its location, view, and community make it a rare opportunity for buyers who want to build their roots in one of the most preferred places to live in the country.”
On Propy’s Twitter account, Twitterati praised the company and its move to cryptos. User Kehinde Lawal said:
“Propy is really doing a great job when it comes to purchasing real estate with cryptocurrency seamlessly and securely.”
User hastytoro said:
“Well done Propy! Adding a enterprise asset for property purchases. You will however have to wait till I give you my #xrp”
The company also teased that they might add Litecoin [LTC] to their roster of accepted coins when user Paalsky said:
“Need to add Litecoin!”
“Perhaps one day!”

XRP: Google Chrome extension to detect trustworthiness of select XRP addresses goes live
The XRP community is vast and perhaps, the most active community in the crypto-ecosystem. The community’s active presence has led to many developers and new users flocking to the ecosystem. This has also led to the development of several XRP-centric products for the ecosystem.
A Twitter user and a well-known developer, @SchlaubiD, put out a tweet about his latest development of a Google Chrome extension. This extension can be used to identify the trustworthiness of XRP wallets. The tweet read,
You can now install #WalletTrust Chrome extension (https://t.co/PCTpA7C9zD) to display trustworthiness of a selected XRP address directly on a website.
Still waiting for chrome's check just because updated text and images :/#xrpcommunity #XRP pic.twitter.com/yeugIxMlul

Additionally, the developer mentioned,
“If you are maybe seeing #Coil payments on every page, keep calm it’s expected 🙂 The extension also implements a test for monetizing chrome extensions.”
While there are tools for other cryptocurrencies to check the trustworthiness of wallets, this is the first of its kind that lets users check the same, via an extension.
The developer had previously created an extension that allowed users to send XRP via emails. The first extension/add-on allows users to send XRP via Microsoft Outlook, and the second extension made it possible via Gmail.
Micro-payments are well-known and famous in the XRP community due to the nature of the XRP Ledger, which settles transactions faster. The micro-payments scene caught on after Wietse Wind created XRP TipBot, which is now available on Twitter, Reddit, and other platforms. Ripple supported Wietse Wind with an investment via Xpring, for his future ventures.
A Twitter user, @John_S_cothill, commented,
“Congrats, this looks ace! Possible Gmail extension in future for the businesses that have moved away from Outlook (its a growing proportion), and personal users?”
@bigbuckor, another Twitter user, commented,
“This would be yet another revolution in the way we send money…with this, who would need Western Union?!”
