Crypto.com has inked a deal with the Formula One team of British luxury car manufacturer Aston Martin.
Both companies were mum on what the deal entails, but said in a press release the brands will “collaborate to bring exclusive experiences and opportunities to traders and fans of the sport.”
The car industry has taken advantage of bitcoin in the past as a means of payment for big-ticket items. Last week, Italian supercar manufacturer Mazzanti announced it was accepting bitcoin and launching its own security token.
In addition to its $1.5 billion bitcoin investment, Tesla also announced it would also allow customers to purchase products with BTC.
