CarNow,the automotive industry's leading digital retailing company, today announced a partnership with Cion Digital providing customers a way to purchase and finance vehicles using cryptocurrency via an integration with CarNow's Real-Time Retail™ platform.
Cion Digital's ready-to-deploy modular payments and lending platform provides companies with access to all the connectivity, infrastructure and support needed to rapidly deploy blockchain-based real-time payment and lending solutions, and to incorporate digital assets into existing traditional and legacy payment and financing systems.
This capability will be made available to CarNow's entire network of nearly 5,000 dealers and will include a first-of-a-kind crypto lending marketplace that will let car buyers use their crypto as collateral for loans at highly competitive rates.
Commenting on the partnership, Tim Cox, Co-founder and Chief Evangelist of CarNow said, "This partnership further demonstrates our commitment to providing our dealers and their clients with the most inclusive, dealer-friendly payment options. Now our dealers can better connect with a new kind of buyer who is looking to leverage next generation cryptocurrency payment options and create a more frictionless car buying journey. We're thrilled to be embarking on this alliance together as we look to transform the car-buying experience.”
Cion's Auto Dealership Cryptocurrency integration gives car buyers shopping at a dealership using CarNow flexible payment and lending options. Car buyers can choose to place a deposit on a vehicle with cryptocurrency, make a down payment, or pay for the vehicle in full. The platform allows for full payment in cryptocurrency, as well as options to combine both crypto and fiat currencies in the same transaction. Car buyers can also use cryptocurrency as collateral to qualify for a low-interest loan with one of several lenders in Cion Digital's lending marketplace - almost always at significantly better rates than traditional financing. Once a car buyer chooses how they want to pay, the order is ported from the CarNow platform to Cion Digital. The integration enables buyers to progress through identity verification (KYC) quickly and seamlessly and proceed to payment.
Transactions are confirmed on the blockchain and transferred in compliance with AML and KYC regulations directly to the custodian in either crypto or fiat (as requested by the dealer) in just a few seconds. Dealers can then choose when they want to transfer settled funds via ACH into their bank account.
“Cion is excited to officially partner with CarNow to offer their dealer partners the ability for buyers to pay for vehicles in cryptocurrency or to use their cryptocurrency as collateral for what is often a lower cost loan,” said Fred Brothers, President and Co-founder of Cion Digital. “With more than half of Millennials now owning crypto, CarNow is increasing dealer capabilities for this fast-growing market of buyers who want more financing and purchasing options at the dealership.”
At rollout, buyers can select from the top 20 coins including Bitcoin, Ethereum, Cardano, Tether, Litecoin, USDC, Polkadot and Dash. Future platform enhancements will include the ability to split the purchase price among multiple coins.

TOKYO, Mar 11, 2022 - (JCN Newswire) - NTT DOCOMO, INC. announced today that it collaborated with NTT Communications Corporation (NTT Com), NTT Network Service Systems Laboratories (NS Labs) and NTT Network Innovation Center (NIC) to successfully test end-to-end orchestration (E2EO) technology based on the Zero Touch Network and Service Management (ZSM) specification of ETSI, a European standardization organization. This first successful deployment of the technology by Japanese telecom operators is expected to clarify the degree of fulfillment of ZSM-specified management services and information models and thereby firm up technical requirements for commercial operation.
E2EO technology automates 5G network slicing to enable multiple networks to operate on common infrastructure. In the recent demonstration, which is being conducted from November 2021 to March 2022, a 5G mobile network built on a testbed incorporating NTT Com, NS Labs and NIC technologies has been automatically sliced with E2EO technology into multiple networks suitable for each application.
Once fully established, interface specifications for transport-network, core-network and data-network control domains will enable the automatic creation and deletion of 5G network slices. This will also enable service quality to be monitored so that processing capacity can be expanded whenever degraded quality is detected in any slice.
