An apartment in Braga, Portugal, was sold Thursday for 3 BTC in the first property sale made directly and entirely in Bitcoin, local news outlet idealist reported.

The feat was possible thanks to new rules that went into effect last month that set out guidelines for how owners and real estate agents can sell properties directly for cryptocurrency. Before the rules, someone buying a house with bitcoin in Portugal had to first convert it to euros at the time of purchase in order to complete the transaction and get the house deed.
