All About Crypto
How does cryptocurrency fit into the title process? Isn't it too digital for traditional title?
Answer: Not at all. While it has its technological complexities, at its core, cryptocurrency functions very similarly to regular money. The main difference is the market volatility, which we try to mitigate as much as possible by converting to USD at the time of deposit, and then either disbursing in USD or converting back to crypto just before disbursment.
How would someone deposit crypto into an escrow account?
Answer: We convert the crypto to standard USD before depositing it into escrow. The value of the cryptocurrency is determined at the time of deposit, and a 3% conversion fee is applied for all transactions performed through BitPay.
Where do I submit funds?
Answer: Contact your processing team for the wallet address of the desired cryptocurrency.

How will I receive my funds?
Answer: Either entirely in cryptocurrency or entirely in USD.
What if the buyer is using cash and I want the disbursment in cryptocurrency?
Answer: That is at the discretion of the title company or settlement agency, but will most likely result in a 2-3% conversion fee.
Will I ever have to pay a conversion fee?
Answer: Only if you are receiving funds in cryptocurrency.

If I have a buyer interested in using crypto assets, what should I ask when using crypto assets as proof of funds?
Answer: There are a few things you'll need to know before moving forward:
- What type of wallet are they using? (Exchange, MultiSignature, Cold, Hot, etc.)
- What is the Crypto Wallet Address for the source of funds? (Rewards, Investment)
- Crypto Asset Type
- Wallet Address
There are thousands of types of Crypto. Which ones are most widely accepted?
Answer: We currently accept BTC (Bitcoin), ETH (Ethereum), USDC (US Digital Coin), and LTC (Litecoin).
Is there a fee to use Crypto in a transaction?
Answer: Yes, we have a 2-3% conversion fee.
Why do I have to supply my crypto wallet address?
Answer: We need the crypto wallet address for currency monitoring purposes. We need to ensure that the funds used to close do not dip below the US equivalent in the desired currency if crypto is going to be used to fund the complete transaction.
Can I use cryptocurrency in tandem with traditional funding to close?
Answer: Yes, at the seller's and/or financing entity's discretion.
