World-famous purveyor of oversized coffee, Starbucks, has dropped the latest info regarding its NFT -owered loyalty system, revealing its general mechanics, participating blockchain, and even a name.
Officially dubbed ‘Starbucks Odyssey,’ the new program will arrive later this year. It will debut alongside its existing platform to offer an additional dimension to its loyalty and rewards initiative and enable customers to collect digital NFT stamps, which they can accumulate to exchange for bonus rewards, including unique merchandise, artist collaborations, invitations to special events and more.
To enable a swift and efficient entry into the Web3 world, Starbucks has partnered with the Polygon network for the initiative. Therefore, utilizing its high speeds, low transaction fees and soon-to-be carbon neutral position.
A unique experience that enables you to earn and buy digital collectible stamps and unlock new, coveted coffee experiences. 🌟

With the launch date now sitting firmly on the horizon, Starbucks has now opened a whitelist for those wanting to get off to a running start. So, to jump on board, head to the Starbucks website and get the ball rolling.
Throughout development, Starbucks has shied away from using the terms NFT and blockchain, instead choosing a more indifferent tone when discussing its future plans for the technology. Essentially, fostering an environment where only those who look under the hood will even realize it is there. This marks a pivotal moment that normalizes the use of Web3 tech as it integrates with day-to-day activities.
