Reasons to Invest

  • KurumaNFT is an automotive NFT marketplace with a mission to empower and connect artists and brands through NFTs within the automotive meta-verse, or what we call the KurumaVerse™.


  • Digital collectibles is a growing space, and we believe no one else is adequately bridging the gap between the auto enthusiast space and Web3 blockchain technology. We intend to fill that gap. 


  • Our team and advisors have a profound level of experience in the automotive industry. President and CEO Taro Koki founded the popular automotive video network GTChannel, while VP of Content Sam Mitani served as International Editor for Road & Track, and he has also authored a number of books.


  • Co-founder Sung Kang, from the Fast and Furious movie franchise, brings his own fans and followers (3.1 million Instagram followers) to our space.


OVERVIEW


Our mission is to empower artists and brands by building relationships with the automotive community through NFTs


As content creators and car enthusiasts, we were inspired to create our own NFT collection and a marketplace where fellow car fans could connect.


That’s why we specialize in automotive NFTs -  everything from original artwork to featured projects by the most influential artists and brands in the motoring industry. From Generative PFP collections to rare one-of-ones to digital collectibles - we cover them all.



KurumaNFT bridges the gap between the automotive enthusiast market and Web3 while helping artists enter and flourish in the space.

THE PROBLEM & OUR SOLUTION


Aiming to bridge the gap between the automotive enthusiast market and Web3 technology 



In our view, no credible entity is taking the lead in guiding automotive brands into Web3. That’s why we have embraced the potential of NFTs to engage relationships between enthusiasts, artists, and automotive brands. 


KurumaNFT is a one-stop shop for premiere artists and brands who want to launch projects, while featuring our own creations, such as KurumaCards digital car collectibles and our special access Founders Pit Pass NFT. Through the buy and trade quality of NFTs, we want to bring the passion of collecting cars, trading cards, collecting diecast models, and offering fashionable merchandise to the digital world by leveraging blockchain technology.


We plan to offer a low-barrier user experience that’s designed for mass adoption by normal car fans and not just Web3 experts.


Our revenue streams:

  • Digital collectible (NFT) sales such as KurumaCards™ and special products. 
  • B2B deals in which KurumaNFT serves the role of a studio to help auto brands launch their own branded NFT projects. 
  • License deals: Starting from licensed merchandise, we plan to take our creations to other platforms.


The Market & our traction


KurumaNFT is at the intersection of two booming markets


The digital collectible market is a $2.5 billion industry (source), the collector car market is a $2 billion industry (source), and the diecast car model market is nearly a $1 billion industry (source).


We believe our competition is mainly focused on those in the motorsports NFT marketplace, and although we are in that space, we plan to hone in on more of the customized market that is comprised of concept vehicles and tuner cars.

 

We are one of the only companies utilizing digital collectibles in this space. Plus, we have the added benefit of having Sung Kang on our team, who not only brings his own massive fan base to the table, but also represents artists in the space.

 

So far, we feel we’ve established a vibrant digital and unique community of car x Web3 enthusiasts.


Here’s more on our recent traction:



why invest


We believe we are positioned for success in the automotive digital collectibles market


In our view, people love cars and love to collect. The collectibles market seems to only keep growing, and the younger generation is keen on the power of digital, tangible assets.

HOW INVESTING WORKS

Cancel anytime before 48 hours before a rolling close or the offering end date.

WHY STARTENGINE?

REWARDS

We want you to succeed and get the most out of your money by offering rewards and memberships!

SECURE

Your info is your info. We take pride in keeping it that way!

DIVERSE INVESTMENTS

Invest in over 200 start-ups and collectibles!

With Regulation A+, a non-accredited investor can only invest a maximum of 10% of their annual income or 10% of their net worth per year, whichever is greater. There are no restrictions for accredited investors.

With Regulation Crowdfunding, non-accredited investors with an annual income or net worth less than $124,000, are limited to invest a maximum of 5% of the greater of those two amounts. For those with an annual income and net worth greater than $124,000, he/she is limited to investing 10% of the greater of the two amounts.

At the close of an offering, all investors whose funds have “cleared” by this time will be included in the disbursement. At this time, each investor will receive an email from StartEngine with their Countersigned Subscription Agreement, which will serve as their proof of purchase moving forward.

Please keep in mind that a company can conduct a series of “closes” or withdrawals of funds throughout the duration of the campaign. If you are included in that withdrawal period, you will be emailed your countersigned subscription agreement and proof of purchase immediately following that withdrawal.

StartEngine assists companies in raising capital, and once the offering is closed, we are no longer involved with whether the company chooses to list shares on a secondary market, or what occurs thereafter. Therefore, StartEngine has no control or insight into your investment after the close of the live offering. In addition, we are not permitted to provide financial advice. You may want to contact a financial professional to discuss possible investment outcomes.

For Regulation Crowdfunding, investors are able to cancel their investment at any point throughout the campaign up until 48 hours before the closing of the offering. Note: If the company does a rolling close, they will post an update to their current investors, giving them the opportunity to cancel during this timeframe. If you do not cancel within this 5-day timeframe, your funds will be invested in the company, and you will no longer be able to cancel the investment. If your funds show as ‘Invested’ on your account dashboard, your investment can no longer be canceled.

For Regulation A+, StartEngine allows for a four-hour cancelation period. Once the four-hour window has passed, it is up to each company to set their own cancelation policy. You may find the company’s cancelation policy in the company’s offering circular.

Once your investment is canceled, there is a 10-day clearing period (from the date your investment was submitted). After your funds have cleared the bank, you will receive your refund within 10 business days.

Refunds that are made through ACH payments can take up to 10 business days to clear. Unfortunately, we are at the mercy of the bank, but we will do everything we can to get you your refund as soon as possible. However, every investment needs to go through the clearing process in order to get sent back to the account associated with the investment.

Both Title III (Regulation Crowdfunding) and Title IV (Reg A+) help entrepreneurs crowdfund capital investments from unaccredited and accredited investors. The differences between these regulations are related to the investor limitations, the differing amounts of money companies are permitted to raise, and differing disclosure and filing requirements.
