How the Future of Gourmet Food is Shaped by NFTs and the Metaverse
Culinary experiences are taking on a new form in the virtual space thanks to the advent of food metaverses, also known as foodverses. Such innovations are offering new ways to enjoy and connect with food, and netizens are excited for new development.
How do food NFTs work?
Food NFTs come in different forms, and with the number of restaurants jumping in to create their own ones, things have become creative. For instance, there are food NFTs that depict the image of food that you can purchase, distinct recipes from famous chefs, and even NFTs that you can use to unlock new food NFT experiences.
The purchase of certain NFTs will give you instant membership to exclusive clubs where you can enjoy several benefits. Several food NFTs have been introduced with the goal of raising money for charity, with the proceeds from the purchases going to social organizations all over the world.
Popular brands making an impact in the NFT food industry
Major food and beverage brands are keeping ahead of the competition while treating their loyal customers to something new through the introduction of food NFTs. Popular global fast food chains such as Pizza Hut, McDonalds, Burger King and Taco Bell have started adding food NFTs to their main menu. This offers customers a chance to experience something new in the dining space.
Similarly, several beverage brands are also trying a different approach to impress customers by introducing virtual bottles. This includes industry giants like Glenfiddich and Hennessy.
The introduction of the food metaverse
With the concept of the metaverse rising in popularity day by day, and with globally influential people joining in, it is expected to bring a huge impact to our social lives. As such a situation persists, it is only natural that food is an important part of the metaverse.
In fact, the foodverse is in trend these days. Culinary enthusiasts and experts from all over the world are excited at the prospect of a space where they can explore food in new forms and perspectives. From creating unusual virtual gourmet dishes to raising awareness on world hunger, opportunities are abundant in the foodverse.
Is the connection between food and NFTs limited to the foodverse?
While the foodverse is, no doubt, making an impact on how people experience food, it is not all that food NFTs are limited to. For instance, while the idea of connecting real food and NFTs seems unreal, it is now possible thanks to platforms like Authlink.
How it works
Imagine that a customer walks into a grocery store looking for a bottle of milk. There will be plenty of choices spanning aisles to pick from, which is overwhelming. Furthermore, if the customer is conscious about the ethical and sustainable practices followed by the milk brand, it takes even more time to make a purchase decision.
This is where food NFTs come in. NFT-based milk bottles will be equipped with QR-code enabled smart tags.
The customer can scan a bottle label and unlock all the relevant information on their smartphones. This can be information from what the name of the dairy farm is to the quality tests the bottle has passed before hitting the shelves. All of this is possible by linking the bottle to its NFT twin on the Authlink platform.
This helps the customer get a clear picture of the bottle’s journey, what the brand stands for and much more.
