You can buy Domino’s pizza and busted Mercedes convertibles and a night in a Howard Johnson’s with Bitcoin, the digital cryptocurrency that’s taken New York and beyond by storm. Now added to the roster of ridiculous things available for purchase with Internet money: a beautiful $1.9M condo in the fancy Trump SoHo building.

DNAInfo reports that the one-bedroom, 741-square-foot unit was listed today on BitPremier, a marketplace for luxurious goods purchasable with Bitcoin. If you’re hoping to write a check for the swanky digs, you might want to make it out to Mt. Gox: the owner is only accepting Bitcoin. In total, the apartment will cost about 18,547.617 in Bitcoin. Chump change, ya know.

Maybe BitInstant founder Charlie Shrem has finally found a pad worth moving out of his parents’ basement for?
