Well this is a first.
£17m is about 5,050 bitcoins - if you had mined these about 10 yrs ago, these would have cost you about £100 - ok slight exaggeration.

If it goes through it certainly will not be the last. For one, overseas investors can avoid crippling bank fees.
Interesting times, no doubt.
A Notting Hill mansion is about to go on the market for £17million - but whoever buys it will have to pay in Bitcoin. For those familiar with cryptocurrency conversions, that's currently about 5,050 Bitcoin.
