Aston Martin is identified with James Bond, having appeared in nearly half of the 25 Bond films — more than any other brand. The Aston Martin DB5 started it all with its 1964 debut in the James Bond film "Goldfinger."
In November, the partnership between BitPay and Exclusive Automotive Group (EAG), an Ashburn-based luxury car dealership, came to light. The partnership made it possible for EAG to accept a variety of cryptocurrencies, including Shiba Inu and others supported by BitPay.
The dealer, which also sells Bentley, Koenigsegg hypercars, Karma Automotive and other exotic cars, now accepts cryptocurrencies for these luxury cars through the BitPay partnership.
