Rick Hilton’s Hilton & Hyland company is offering up a 17k square foot, $42-million mansion to the auction block. This is the first home in U.S. history to offer bidding in cryptocurrency.

The 5-story home, dubbed The Palazzetto, was built by famed architect and sculptor Giacomo Della Porta back in the 16th century … Porta also collaborated a ton with Michelangelo.
