ONE OF THE LARGEST REAL ESTATE DEVELOPERS IN BRAZIL NOW ACCEPTS BITCOIN
Gafisa’s decision to accept bitcoin was also largely based on the disruptive nature of the technology which can open opportunities for further innovation in the growing sector.
This growth has seen Brazil has become one of the leading countries for the adoption of bitcoin. Not only does Brazil rank number six in on-chain value transacted in a report by Chainalysis, but Gafisa houses 1 out of every 130 Brazilians, according to Gafisa data, making this a natural path of progression.
“Bitcoin is the largest cryptocurrency in market value and, technologically, the most ballast currency in history,” said Guilherme Benevides, CEO of Gafisa. “It is a currency that is growing in popularity every day, also expanding the possibilities of its use.”
Benevides continued to explain that bitcoin follows a path of progression and with the digital revolution currently being experienced worldwide, Gafisa feels digital payments will continue to garner an increasingly high level of presence in emerging economies.
“There is a natural tendency to digitize payments,” Benevides explained. “If we stop to think that the Central Bank will launch the digital real in 2022, we can conclude that, in fact, digital currencies are increasingly present in the world.”
