The AFR Young Rich-Lister recently put another luxurious home in Sydney’s east up for sale for $6.5 million, after the price of Bitcoin dropped more than 50 per cent in value earlier this year. 

But Mr Schebesta plans to hold onto his Coogee Crypto Castle – which was once owned by businessman John Singleton and used in various films, including Eyes Wide Shut – a little while longer

‘It would be very, very hard to find another place that comes close. And I and that’s what I look for – very unique properties. Because I’m a pretty unique guy,’ he told the Daily Telegraph recently.
