It stands to reason that any new technological innovation under this iteration of the web is just another way to break labor laws. NFTs have changed the game by being a new way to launder money. An Orlando brewery goes one step further and creates an NFT that’s worth something in the real world (without first finding anyone else who’s signed on to the scam).
Oviedo Brewing is creating an NFT of its 100th batch beer can to celebrate reaching this milestone. Purchasing the NFT (of which only 100 are current) will grant the buyer entry into the party celebrating the 100th lot. Beyond that, the batch of beer will physically exist in real cans for revelers to drink. It’s a much better deal than some algorithmically generated garbage that would look left on a dorm wall.
Oviedo Brewing will be showcasing NFT at the Orlando Science Center’s “Science on Tap” event on Saturday, January 29. NFTs will be available for purchase on the OpenSea NFT Marketplace on February 2. .
