I haven't seen that yet, but nothing surprises me anymore. The only problem that I have is that I don't really know enough about crypto-currencies, their values or how you would even begin to write a contract using them. I am afraid I would let my client down.

Does that mean that my commission comes in Bitcoin as well?

Some like to do gimmicky things to stand out, like anything else other than cash, the bitcoin would need to be converted.

I wouldn't trust anything except our U.S Dollar and our American Banks.  Any other funds would be too risky for me as a representative of a client.

Yes, we have escrows/title who have such experience. But not sure many principals are ready for this kind of payment. In any case, I'd love to represent such principal:)

I don't know any of our attorneys that would accept bitcoin as payment - it's ultimately up to them what form of currency is used.
