What Does Web3 & NFTs Mean For Restaurants?
So while it may not be surprising that a restaurant concept by alpha-adopter and Internet celebrity Gary Vaynerchuk can raise millions of dollars selling NFTs, what about that mom & pop place on the corner?
In other words, how does a small restauranteur that doesn't have the followers, fame and early adopter advantage of a Vaynerchuk take advantage of web3?
That's what we talk about with this week's guest, Adam Brotman, the CEO of Brightloom and former head of digital for Starbucks.
Fingers on the Pulse
Amazing podcast for anyone interested in the space where food meets technology. Michael Wolf's conversations with the movers and shakers in the industry are more than informative, they provide thoughtful insights into the types of problems that people are working to solve today.
Great show looking at both food tech and connected home. Now I need to make my kitchen smart. Too bad it won’t make me a better cook.
