Greenline Yachts in Slovenia just became what is believed to be the world’s first yachtbuilder to accept payment in the cryptocurrency bitcoin.

The news comes shortly after U.S.-based Denison Yachting announced that it has closed two brokerage deals with buyers who paid in bitcoin, and that it is accepting the blockchain-based cryptocurrency for payment on new Beneteau, Fountaine-Pajot and Hatteras models that it has in stock at its dealership.

Greenline began accepting bitcoin at the Düsseldorf Boat Show in late January, where it showed off its line of hybrid-powered cruising yachts.
