CurioInvest and Chainlink Bringing Real-Time Valuations to Collectible Car Market

CurioInvest collaborates with Chainlink to provide the world’s first real-time benchmark price for collectible cars

Vaduz, Liechtenstein; 24 June 2020 – CurioInvest.com, the go-to blockchain platform for tokenized investments in ultra-rare cars, is pleased to announce its collaboration with Chainlink to bring transparency and trust to price valuations for our collection of tokenized vehicles. 

CurioInvest uses the blockchain to democratize investment into ultra-rare cars by tokenizing them on the blockchain. Investors can buy “car tokens” which trade like shares and represent a stake in a particular vehicle. The car tokens can then trade on open markets, providing liquidity to typically illiquid markets.

For decades, pricing classic and collector vehicles has been extraordinarily challenging, requiring research for historic provenance and scrolling across auction results to find comparable car values. These challenges keep many potential participants out of the market and result in users having to pay hefty fees to third party evaluators to identify originality and determine the real market price of such assets. 

Starting today, CurioInvest is working with Chainlink to challenge the status quo by creating a reliable and neutral price feed for determining the value of ultra-rare, collectible cars. Chainlink is a decentralized oracle network that allows the blockchain to connect to data feeds existing outside the blockchain in a highly secure and reliable manner. CurioInvest will leverage Chainlink to aggregate multiple data feeds into a single trusted valuation, bringing price transparency to each rare car or collectible asset available on our platform.

The benefits are tangible as traders can invest in any of CurioInvest’s car tokens and trade against a reliable benchmark. Having a reliable benchmark will increase market liquidity and decrease slippage, all with the comfort of knowing that originality and prices for rare cars are being sourced by a pool of trusted independent sources. 

By combining a Chainlink-enabled benchmark with independent valuations across secondary sources, CurioInvest will bring real-time access to the valuations of collectible cars. This is a world’s first, and a major step towards CurioInvest’s goal of bringing liquidity to non-bankable assets.

This collaboration sets an unprecedented milestone in the world of collectibles, previously known for notoriously opaque pricing. CurioInvest joins the high caliber group of DeFi projects striving to enhance price transparency and liquidity through the use of Chainlink’s secure and reliable oracles, including Synthetix, Loopring, Aave, and DMM.

The CurioInvest ‘Founders Series’ collectible, a 2015 Ferrari F12tdf CT1, has been chosen for the first iteration of the integration: It’s currently in the fundraising round, of which more details can be found here

Moreover, this integration serves as a valuable stepping stone for greater decentralization of the CurioInvest platform. Some planned features on our roadmap include a distributed collateral pool of digital assets backed by collectibles,  which may collateralize stablecoins and even DeFi products such as insurance protection. Such products would significantly rely on various Chainlink price feeds to keep stable and fully collateralized. Having reliable financial products backed by real-world assets could bring substantially more liquidity to collectible car tokens and other rare assets. 

Commenting on the collaboration, Daniel Kochis, Head of Chainlink Business Development stated “We’re excited to provide secure and reliable data oracles to CurioInvest to help them pioneer a new market dynamic around bringing real-time benchmark prices to the collectibles industry. This can not only expand the amount of liquidity available for rare assets, but provision trading markets based on reliable data feeds.”

Fernando Verboonen, Cofounder at CurioInvest says: Chainlink brings crucial infrastructure for building the CurioInvest ecosystem, ultimately making rare collectible assets as liquid as possible. It genuinely provides the missing piece in the puzzle that I’ve been seeking, allowing CurioInvest to easily create a system of valuation analytics for all CurioInvest’s rare cars or other collectibles.

CurioInvest aims to build a transparent marketplace for many different types of collectibles and this collaboration lays the initial architecture towards offering a transparent, secure, and practical marketplace.

CurioInvest Announces ‘Founders Series’ 2015 Ferrari F12tdf CT1 Digital Asset Capital Raise

Vaduz, Liechtenstein; ​15 June 2020 – CurioInvest, the market leader and technology pioneer for tokenized collectables, is pleased to announce its Founders Series 2015 Ferrari F12tdf CT1 digital asset capital raise.

Now clients have access to collectable assets to build a diversified portfolio with real assets. In times of market turmoil and uncertainty, CurioInvest is providing an alternative to traditional asset classes previously reserved to the very few.
Just a few weeks ago, CurioInvest business model was recognized among the top 10 Swiss FinTechs by McKinsey’s leading start-up program venture.ch as well as broadcasted on the National TV across all Switzerland.

As Credit Suisse highlighted in its 2018 report, from 1980 to 2017, classic cars were by far the best performing collectable asset. Moreover, as Hagerty Index shows from 2007 to 2019 rare Ferrari prices increased +340%, with clear spikes during the periods of monetary stimulus. However only the very wealthy few benefited from this value appreciation, until now. CurioInvest is challenging this status quo.

CurioInvest collectable car offering is reachable to all, with a low minimum purchase of just $100. Once the Soft cap is reached, the car will be professionally stored, maintained, and insured on behalf of the investors by reputable world-class partners. CT1 represents the 2015 Ferrari F12tdf of the top “concours” grade, from the highly prestigious limited-edition (799 production run), invitation-only series.

In an unprecedented manner, investors will be able to trade tokens peer to peer without any trading window restrictions or lock-ups. This unique feature enables our investors to participate seamlessly in collectable assets starting with $1 by trading directly on the upcoming exchanges.

CurioInvest founder Says: It’s a big step in expanding CurioInvest’s footprint and ecosystem and making real assets such as collectible cars accessible to the public.”

The CT1 digital asset capital raise is expected to be finalized mid-July 2020.
