Boss of Houston Rockets became the number one fan of Bitcoin
On September 6th, the Houston-based luxury retailer Post Oak Motor Cars became the first Bentley, Bugatti and Rolls-Royce dealer to accept cryptocurrency payment methods in the United States.While the boss of the company is the new owner of the Houston Rockets, Tilman Fertitta.
Fertitta stated accepting cryptocurrency as a payment method is to enhance the customer's experience.
“The rising of bitcoin sparked my interest. Being a premier luxury car dealer, I always want to offer my customers the very best buying experience and this partnership will allow anyone around the world to purchase our vehicles faster and easier,”
Fertitta said in a statement.
Post Oak Motor Cars has reached a partnership with bitcoin payer Bitpay. Bitpay chief business officer Sonny Singh stated in an interview that most buyers like to use cryptocurrency with large market value for bulk purchase, because it is more convenient .
Fertitta, the owner of the car dealer, bought the Houston Rockets for $2.2 billion last year and he is a well-known bitcoin supporter. For example, at the beginning of this year, the billionaire announced on CNBC that Bitcoin would last forever. He also predicted that his business in various fields would accept this cryptocurrency as a payment method.
Fertitta is not the first NBA team owner to be attracted by the cryptocurrency. Earlier this year, Dallas Mavericks’s owner Mark Cuban also said that the team would accept Bitcoin to buy tickets during the 2018-2019 season, which began from October 16th.
