Simmons has long been a proponent of crypto. Last February, he revealed that he had more than $1 million worth of Bitcoin. He also started tweeting about other popular cryptocurrencies, leading to accusations that the musician was being paid to promote them.
The Simmons estate is part of the luxury community of Ascaya, which is located on the southeastern side of the city.
