Crypto and automakers

It’s worth pointing out that this is not Mercedes-Benz Group’s first introduction into the crypto space. Daimler South East Asia, a part of the Mercedes-Benz Group, announced back in July a data-sharing network based on blockchain technology, which will leverage the Ethereum Layer-2 scalability platform Polygon to launch its product. 

The data-sharing platform,, Acentrink was designed to let businesses purchase, sell, and trade data in a decentralized setting.

Automakers continue immersion with NFTs

Elsewhere, back in April, Hyundai Motor became the first automaker to issue community-based NFTs. In May, McLaren Automotive collaborated with MSO LAB to develop unique, limited-edition McLaren NFTs. 

Meanwhile, Formula One (F1) continues making inroads into NFTs and the metaverse after filing trademarks ahead of the Las Vegas Grand Prix circuit slated for November 2023.

Interestingly, individual teams such as the F1 team Mercedes-AMG Petronas and the now bankrupt cryptocurrency exchange FTX had launched a joint NFT initiative. CRYPTOCASTER® - DECENTRALIZED FREEDOM!
