Starbucks Taps Ethereum Scaling Network Polygon for NFT Rewards


Brief introduction: Polygon is a Layer 2 scaling solution on the Ethereum blockchain. Polygon’s proof-of-stake network allows for low fees and a transaction rate of ~65,000 TPS on a side chain, before being finalised on the Ethereum mainchain. Its native utility token is MATIC. Polygon primarily focuses on increasing DeFi tools and applications by connecting blockchains.


Why it matters:

  • Starbucks plans to offer its customers NFT rewards, which can unlock access to merchandises and events – such as virtual drink-mixing class or a trip to Starbucks’ Costa Rican coffee farm, through Polygon

  • Customers can earn digital stamps, which will be minted as NFTs, by completing challenges and playing interactive games through its app and can purchase limited NFT stamps from the company

  • From September 12, customers and partners can join the waitlist to be the first to receive access to the Starbucks Odyssey experience launching later this year
