NFT holders are welcome at Flyfish Club. According to the introduction on its main site, the New-York-based gourmet restaurant Flyfish Club is the world’s first fine dining restaurant for NFT holders.
Members of the club are welcome to experience the highest standards in the restaurant service industry.
First Exclusive-NFTs Restaurant
To join the private dining club, users need to purchase the membership packages, which are formed under NFTs.
Those who love to grab this chance can purchase Flyfish Club’s NFTs listed on OpenSea marketplace, create a member profile at Flyfishclub.com and then connect wallets for ownership verification.
The two tiers available are Flyfish Membership – costing 2.5 ETH and Flyfish Omakase – costing 4.25 ETH.
With the regular membership, customers will have access to cocktail lounge, main dining restaurant, outdoor space and private events. With the exclusive membership, customers will have access to a 14-seat omakase room and of course receive all the benefits of the basic.
“Omakase” is a popular term in Japanese cuisine, referring to a gourmet experience in which diners sit and watch the chef prepare the dishes directly on the spot and enjoy them as soon as the food is done. Customers can also have a face-to-face interaction with the chef.
A Hot Item
At the time of writing, these two packages were sold out, even though the restaurant’s launch is unlikely to be here until 2023. This is a sign that NFTs are not slowing down for the time being.
Flyfish Club was established by the VCR Group, the hospitality services providers with cultural fusion inspired by old-world hospitality and present-day technology.
VCR Group’s core team consists of familiar names in the F & B industry: Entrepreneur Gary Vaynerchuk, David Rodolitz and Conor Hanlon.
According to the details on the official website, members won’t be charged an annual fee. NFT holders can also sell their tokens or even lend their assets to non-members for a month.
“By utilizing NFT’s, FFC is able to create a loyal, member-community that we can provide special experiences for. NFT’s create new modernistic financial models, which will allow FFC to deliver an exceptional and sustainable product for years to come.”
Unique Approach Of NFTs To Food & Beverage Industry
NFTs (or non-fungible tokens) are a type of digital asset that employs blockchain technology.
Simply explained, NFTs are assets that have been digitized and held on the blockchain. NFTs are tokens, but unlike cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin or Ethereum, each token is unique.
Last year, the NFT market took significant steps forward. It made major contributions and achieved success in a variety of fields, including art, film, music, and games.
Real estate was the next area to see increased investment by the end of 2021.
No major company wants to be left behind in this profitable market, including F&B, which, according to our suppositions, has the least connection with NFTs.
But global enterprises are quickly adopting NFT technology and applying it to business lines such as resorts, restaurants, and hotels.
McDonald’s became the first restaurant chain in China to offer non-fungible tokens to its customers in October 2021.
After McDonald’s Shanghai flagship shop opened over the weekend, a limited number of NFTs will be distributed to employees and diners.
The “Big Mac Cube” NFT is modeled by the shape of McDonald’s China headquarters, an eight-story tower located in West Bund, southwest of Xu Hui area.
Is there a good rationale for the choice to launch NFT?
McDonald’s China CEO Zhang Jiaying stated that the fast food corporation is a youthful brand that strives for the most sophisticated fashion and technological trends. This is also the motivation of all other brands in the market.
Flyfish Club could be the first NFT-exclusive dining establishment. It is not, however, the first gourmet concept to incorporate cryptocurrencies into its business plan.
Previously, a restaurant in Florida called “Crypto Street” was open, with decorations that featured crypto-themed wall art. The restaurant accepts cryptocurrency payments.
