CurioInvest tokenizes collectible supercars, thereby giving anyone the opportunity to purchase a part of the vehicle in the form of unique collectible tokens pegged directly to the supercar. Having become an owner of the Car’s tokens, the investor can track their value, and buy or sell tokens to a different investor.
According to Bloomberg, the supercar market has grown by 161% since 2011, more than doubling the jewelry and coins markets. “The extremely limited production of Ferrari F12tdf run of just 799 vehicles. While the initial purchase price was believed to be in the region of $450,000, on the rare occasions it has come up for auction or private sale, it has sold for significantly more. In 2016, for example, an F12tdf sold at a Los Angeles dealership for $1,550,000,” – CurioInvest cites an impressive example of the supercar market growth.
The new strategic partnership between Curioinvest and Changelly is aimed at building a cryptocurrency gateway for all the members of the global crypto community willing to invest their crypto assets in collectible cars such as Ferrari F12tdf.
