The Japan Edition 2019 is now owned by “ogasahara”. The account has acquired several digital collectibles.

The “Japan Edition 2019” of the digital collectible officially licensed by Formula 1 has the kanji (令和), denoting Reiwa.

As a non-fungible token (NFT), this car’s authenticity and true digital ownership are guaranteed on blockchain.

Reiwa, according to a release by F1 Delta Time, is indeed the new era in Japan. This era started on May 1, 2019 and signifies “beautiful harmony”.

“As a non-fungible token (NFT), this car’s authenticity and true digital ownership are guaranteed on blockchain,” the release indicated.

“‘Japan Edition 2019’ car is the first official Formula 1 product to celebrate the very first FORMULA 1 JAPANESE GRAND PRIX in the Reiwa era.”

The “France Edition 2019” car is the the 3rd licensed Formula 1 non-fungible token (NFT) collectible designed and developed for the blockchain game F1® Delta Time, and dedicated to commemorating the “FORMULA 1 PIRELLI GRAND PRIX DE FRANCE”.

The car was auctioned for a whooping ETH 96.60 (over $16,000). Also, the winning bid for the Monaco Edition 2019 was sold for “108.00 ETH”.
