Why Curio


Curio Invest is an online investment platform that enables investors of all income levels to invest in high-value assets.

A few reasons why investors choose us:

Collectable cars have been consistently among the highest performing alternative asset classes, but up until now, the market was only viable for elite investors. Curio is using blockchain to disrupt the industry, enabling smaller investors to benefit from the collectable car market. It is also an ideal opportunity for crypto investors to diversify their exposure by investing in tokens backed by a tangible asset.

Invest in the Rarest Cars

Like in any market, some of the most profitable collectable cars command the highest purchase prices. While an extremely exclusive car like the Ferrari F12 Tour De France is likely to increase in value over time, the purchase price of €890,000 will deter all but the wealthiest investors. Curio levels the playing field, enabling small and mid-level investors to invest in a tokenized share of the vehicle.

Invest Efficiently

Curio’s unique, lean, crowdfunding structure based in Lichtenstein enables your investment to grow in a tax-efficient way.

Invest Securely

The Curio platform ensures the highest possible level of security by using a decentralised and encrypted blockchain network while addressing regulatory and compliance concerns in close cooperation with FMA. As there is no central server, a large-scale data breach is virtually impossible. This is the reason why major international actors such as the Swiss government, the United Nations, and the Pentagon are placing their trust in blockchain technology.

Full-Service Investment

Curio is not just a gateway to the collectable car market. Our team also manage every aspect of the investment, including all documentation, administration and payments.

No Return, No Fee

You do not pay Curio any fees until and unless your investment succeeds, meaning that your interests are completely aligned with those of Curio.

Transparent Monitoring Tools

Transparent monitoring tools keep investors informed throughout the investment life cycle, providing a central hub to store or download all relevant documentation.

Multi-Currency

Curio offers vast flexibility, enabling you to invest and withdraw in any of the top 25 international currencies and 35 alternative currencies such as Bitcoin and Ether.
