In July, CNBC published a story on NFTs cryp-tip-toing their way into loyalty programs. More specifically, the story focused on Hang, a B2B startup that aims to help brands build unique loyalty programs through NFTs.
Hang’s early clients include big names in the food and beverage industry, like Budweiser and Pinkberry. It’s also made deals with names in the music festival industry, like Bonnaroo.
