Cryptocurrency has had a massive effect on the economy in the recent years. It has gained popularity and made headlines with many more people embracing it as a new way of transferring value. Transactions in our daily lives have been transformed dramatically through the adoption of blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies. And with the financial industry experiencing the massive disruption caused by cryptocurrency, many other industries have been affected through a ripple effect. Of course, this is because the financial industry is at the center of operations for all other markets. People and organizations are being affected both directly and indirectly by the cryptocurrency sweep. With the increasing popularity gained since 2018 through constant media coverage, cryptocurrency has become an inevitable part of most industries.
The Japanese Domestic Market (JDM) is not being left behind. The JDM Car Culture community has grown tremendously over the years with Japanese car brands stealing the hearts of many billions of people across the world. The Technological innovation, safety improvements and product enhancements have made Japanese cars to be popular and respectable. Everyone wants to be associated with the high-quality vehicles. With cryptocurrency sweeping over the way that people are making payments for different things today, many JDM car companies have realized its power and have decided to accept cryptocurrency as legit payment for their products as well as services.
L’Operaio, a Japanese luxury car dealership, made an announcement to accept Bitcoin as a payment option for their products through bitFlyer- their Tokyo-based digital wallet. Another good example is Carriage Nissan, a Nissan dealership in Atlanta, Georgia that accepts payment through Bitcoin for their new Nissan cars. Many Japanese car dealerships have followed suit.
Knowing JDM car enthusiasts, and especially with their love for technological innovation, it is almost obvious that many of them have embraced the popular, lucrative, and powerful cryptocurrency. We can, therefore, call the move by JDM car companies to incorporate use of cryptocurrency – smart. It is a sure way to make their businesses available to everyone in the new Digital Era. It is also a great way to own and control part of the blockchain technology.
There is a new 'super' car in town! If you have watched The Black Panther then I'm talking about King T'challa's car.In the widely watched Marvel movie, the 2018 Lexus LC 500 is paired with the superhero, played by Chadwick Boseman, a sign of royalty!
Well, of course as a JDM enthusiast, your interest is beyond the glory painted in the film and you want to know what the machine can actually do.Mere word of mouth is not your cup of tea and so here we talk about the features and capabilities of this new, possibly very cool ride.
The superhero movie is the perfect way to introduce the superhero car, which is clearly off the charts. For starters, only 100 units will be manufactured! So, this will definitely be a car for very few lucky ride owners around the world.It will be draped in a particular sparkling shade of blue that was manufactured in eight months. It has been described as having carbon-fibre plates, white interior, an alluring sommelier set,21-inch cast alloy wheels.All these work together in bringing out the flashy aspect of this amazing car.
To make it just as intimidating as the Black Panther, it's engine's power comes from vibranium cores.Vibranium is also used to reinforce the body-work, thus making it bulletproof.
The new 2018 Lexus LC 500 is capable of putting out 471 horsepower at 7100 rpm! It goes from 0 to 60 miles an hour in 4.8 seconds! This is impressive, and a very attractive feature for those of us who live for speed. The car also has a gas base engine with a capacity of 5.0 Litres.
