Frequently asked questions
Aside from crypto being an additional source to fund real estate purchases, it is in the seller or agency’s favor to process crypto transactions. Funds are automatically and instantly accumulated, converted and settled in the bank account of the seller or agency at the best available rate without middlemen.
Convenience: it is much easier. The alternative would be sending crypto to an exchange, selling it, and moving the funds into a bank account as a taxable event to only then start the buying process.
Universality: traditional currencies and banking can sometimes stand in the way of buying a property. Crypto eliminates third-party complications by being universal and available at the touch of a button anywhere in the world.
Simplicity: digital wallets and account addresses ensure safe transactions with public keys and private keys. Private keys can be used to sign and verify transactions on the blockchain. Due to this, transactions only involve the buyer and the seller or agency.

The seller will invoice the buyer like they normally would in a fiat currency and ForumPay payment gateway will show the buyer exactly how much crypto they need to send for this transaction. The rate will then be locked in for both the buyer and seller.

Some buyers are purchasing real estate internationally, where this form of payment is more efficient, while others are simply using their accumulated wealth to invest or purchase real estate as paying directly in crypto is a lot more efficient and convenient than converting crypto into fiat manually for the purchase of real estate.
For the seller nothing changes and it can be compared with a card payment. In this case the buyer would use cryptocurrency directly from the wallet of their choice, but the seller still receives fiat currency in their bank account as if the buyer would have made the purchase in a traditional currency.
ForumPay can support both options – the seller can either purchase real estate entirely with cryptocurrency or make additional payments via traditional payment rails as well.
