Although many pundits disagree on the short-term prospects for digital assets, the push for adoption is a bandwagon that crypto investors, insiders, and leaders alike can easily hop onto. Hence why many were over the moon, so to speak, when Changpeng Zhao revealed that Binance Coin (BNB), an ERC20 token on Ethereum, could be used to purchase an aircraft.
On Thursday, Aeron, a startup with aspirations of “saving people’s lives” through blockchain technologies, revealed that one of its ventures, Pilot Shop, had listed an aircraft for sale. Interestingly, while the plane, a well-kept Columbia 350 from 2007, was listed for 268,000 Euros, Pilot Shop revealed that it would accept Aeron tokens (ARN) and Binance Coin (BNB) in exchange for the hunk of metal. At the time of press, prospective buyers will need to fork over ~31,603 BNB or 446,666 ARN tokens to purchase the aircraft, which is currently based in Austria.
