Brazilian Real Estate Giant ‘Gafisa’ Can Now Accept Shiba Inu As Payment Method


Shiba Inu’s utility may be increased once more if people can use the cryptocurrency to purchase real estate properties from Gafisa.

Gafisa, a Brazilian home builder, now accepts cryptocurrency as a payment method to purchase its real estate properties, thanks to a partnership with Latin American cryptocurrency payment provider and exchange Foxbit.

The Purpose of Shiba Inu Adoption

According to a press release, Gafisa chose the nascent asset class as a payment method because it eliminates the intermediaries involved in the traditional payment sector, allowing customers to pay for properties directly without much hassle.

Furthermore, Foxbit stated that one of the reasons the real estate developer decided to accept cryptocurrency as a payment method is the benefits associated with cryptocurrency. Cryptocurrency provides fast, low-cost transactions and better cost benefits for commerce and eliminates payment-related fraud.

The disruptive nature of cryptocurrencies, according to Foxbit, was one of the reasons Gafisa chose crypto as a payment method.

Guilherme Benevides, CEO of Gafisa Incorporadora e Construtora São Paulo, commented on the development:

“Cryptocurrency is growing in popularity every day, also expanding the possibilities of its use. There is a natural tendency to digitize payments.”
