In a pivotal move for 2023, Ferrari’s embrace of cryptocurrency, particularly Bitcoin (BTC), for car purchases in the U.S. has been hailed as a game-changer by CoinFlip’s CEO, a leading Bitcoin ATM operator.
Acknowledging the escalating demand for alternative payment methods among its clientele, Ferrari has taken a proactive step by facilitating the purchase of its luxury vehicles using cryptocurrencies. According to a company spokesperson, this decision aims to cater to customer preferences while ensuring the legitimacy of cryptocurrency sources and mitigating risks associated with exchange rate volatility. Notably, the company and its dealers will transact in traditional currency, avoiding direct management of cryptocurrencies.
The adoption of crypto payments by Ferrari was made possible through integration with BitPay, a renowned crypto payment platform that serves prominent global brands such as AMC Theaters and Newegg. This collaboration allows customers across 10 U.S. locations, including Washington and Las Vegas, to convert their cryptocurrency holdings into esteemed Ferrari models like the SF90 Stradale, Ferrari Purosangue, Daytona SP3, and more.
This strategic shift towards cryptocurrency aligns with Ferrari’s commitment to Environmental, Social, and Corporate Governance (ESG) principles, underlining its proactive stance toward innovative and sustainable business practices.
The move not only showcases Ferrari’s adaptability to evolving consumer preferences but also reinforces its position as a trailblazer in the luxury automotive industry, further solidifying its global brand appeal.”
