Sotheby’s Hong Kong announced, on Sept 7, that it will extend the cryptocurrency option to buyers at the Diamonds: The Dazzle sale in September.

The move by Sotheby’s comes after an anonymous crypto buyer successfully purchased a 101.38-carat diamond for HK$95.1 million ($16.4 million) in July.

The sale took place at the auction house’s inaugural Luxury Edit sale series in Asia in July.
