Bringing luxury cars and crypto together

There are hundreds of conferences and meetups devoted to crypto. However, they all feel and look the same, being formal and unremarkable. Crypto Rally (20-22 July) offers a new format, guaranteeing two days of unique experience. Let’s explore it more.

Crypto community has a soft spot for Lambos

It’s no secret, is it? Lamborghini has reported record sales due to an increasing demand among crypto investors and entrepreneurs. One notably famous Lamborghini buyer is Peter Saddington who purchased the luxury car with 45 bitcoins claiming that it proves that bitcoin “can be used for real transactions, buying really cool stuff”. It is definitely true: a lot of luxury and rarity cars have been bought in using crypto – and not only bitcoin, but many other major currencies.  

And Lambo is not just a luxury car – it is a fast (and furious) automobile with up to 1200 horsepowers. It is a technological marvel that, therefore, attracts many forward-looking members crypto community.

Crypto Rally acknowledges and supports this passion for fast automobiles. Visitors will be able to race Lambos and Porsches down an epic racetrack and feel like a Formula One champion driving across picturesque Lithuanian landscapes.

Blockchain is already used in cars

Many car manufacturers including Porsche, BMW and Mercedes already use DLT in order to make their cars even better.

For example, Daimler AG, a German multinational automotive corporation known for trademarks Mercedes-Benz and Smart, introduced its own cryptocurrency MobiCoin. To obtain coins, driver will have to adopt more eco-friendly driving habits. Largest MobiCoin holders are promised to receive VIP tickets to races and Mercedes Cup Final.

Porsche, on the contrary, is using blockchain for more everyday and practical purposes: they are testing it on Porsche Panamera to make the mechanisms of locking and unlocking the vehicle faster and safer.

If you have something to say about this, and you have your own startup ideas and vision of new technologies in the field of crypto and blockchain, you are welcome on Crypto Rally. During the driving across Lithuania, there will be pit stops meant for presentations of participants’ projects, networking sessions and much more. Visitors are promised with media coverage, new useful contacts and potential partners and investors.

Long live Lithuania

Why isn’t the rally held in the homeland of Lambo – in Italy? If you question the location of Crypto Rally, we can assure you that a small Baltic country of Lithuania is definitely worth visiting – not only from the tourist perspective, but also as a “Baltic gem” of ICOs and blockchain startups. It is a blockchain gateway to Europe with more that 30 000 IT specialists. In 2017, 10% of ICO investments were attracted to this region, leaving only the US and China above.
