Utrust is zooming into the future with Lotus Silverstone
The British-based car dealer will be using our invoice feature to accept payments in a variety of digital currencies, such as Bitcoin, Ethereum, Tether or UTK.
Lotus Silverstone is joining the Utrust ecosystem
Lotus cars, of course, is one of the UK’s most legendary automobile brands. They’ve been around since 1948, they’ve made some of the most iconic cars to ever hit a tarmac, and they’re not going anywhere. They’ve been a staple in motorsports and in highways everywhere for over half a century now.
Lotus Silverstone is a dealer that understands how unique and special these vehicles are, and they are fully dedicated to providing their customers with everything that is great about the brand. It is one of the largest and most important Lotus Cars dealers in the UK and Europe, and the 2018 change in administration is bringing the company into the future.
They’ve been plying their trade since 2009
Whilst originally operating from a workshop located within the Silverstone Estate, the business quickly became one of the leading Lotus operations within Europe. Nearly 10 years later, already under new management, the team relocated the operation to a much larger purpose-built home on the Silverstone Park development where it has been located since 2018.
The British car industry is massive
Lotus Silverstone is part of the UK automotive industry, one of the largest in the country. It’s worth over 15.3 billion GBP to the economy, and it employs over 18.000 people. Now, it’s true, Brexit has hit car industries all over particularly hard. But still. Even when facing hard times, Brits are buying 1.63 million cars a year.
Now, the company seeks to continue with the same kind of innovation that made them one of the largest Lotus dealers in the world by adopting digital currencies.
The digital currency market is composed mainly of young, tech-savvy, and relatively wealthy users. Their numbers have recently reached 100 million people worldwide. This represents a 189% growth, and Utrust has played a part in this change. With a stated mission of bringing digital currencies to the masses, Utrust has processed over 25 million USD in 2020, with the vast majority of that coming in the second semester.
By accepting digital currencies (cryptocurrencies) with Utrust, Lotus Silverstone is allowing their clients to purchase vehicles, services, and repair operations using Bitcoin, Ethereum, Tether, or UTK, among several other currencies.
And there’s a lot of advantages to doing it with Utrust.

- There are no chargebacks. All sales are final and recorded on an immutable ledger.

- There are over 100 million digital currencies users out there, eager for access to more merchants.
