If you’re still in the market to buy a rockstar’s house – given that the Arlington, TX home of late Pantera drummer Vinnie Paul is now sold – Gene Simmons of Kiss is now selling his place! That said, he is only accepting payment in a specific way.
As reported by Metal Hammer, Simmons has put up his multi-billion dollar Las Vegas home for sale. The current price tag for the place is – $13.5 million dollars. Per Simmons, he is asking for payment in the form of either Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, Uniswap, Polkadot, Litecoin, Aave, Try, or a combination of the above. We haven’t even heard of half of these!
In a recent conversation with Blabbermouth, the Kiss bassist/singer shared, “I have been an outspoken proponent of cryptocurrency from the beginning. It is the future of money, and it just makes sense to offer interested parties the option of using cryptocurrency to purchase the estate.”

Simmons bought the house back in 2021 for $10.8 million; his decision to sell the house, per what he told The Wall Street Journal, is due to him and his family rarely spending time there.
This isn’t the first time a musician has brought up the idea of cryptocurrency in real estate. When Vinnie Paul’s house was still up for sale, Avenged Sevenfold frontman M. Shadows presented the idea of fans going in to buy the property using cryptocurrency.
So folks, which one of you is stepping up to buy Simmons’ pad?
Kiss formed in 1973 and have become one of the biggest rock bands in all of history. In 2019, the band announced their farewell tour, “End of the Road,” consisting of 44 dates. The tour started in 2019, but has been extended due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
