Coffee Bros. is approaching crowdfunding for its first cafe in NYC in a different way thanks to a new NFT project. The Crypto Barista Season 1 is kicking off with 60 caffeine-loving characters on the blockchain, which will help to open the world's very first NFT-funded cafe.
Beyond helping to support a new business venture, the Crypto Baristas offer great benefits for owners, including "caffeinated perks for life at all future cafe spaces and websites." Crypto Barista owners also control the Barista Bank, a 15% fund set aside from the project's revenue for future use in the coffee space.
The hand-drawn NFTs created by illustrator Tony Bui each depict a unique character making coffee. With the launch of Season 1, up to 455 owners will get to claim an NFT of their own, some of which are rarer than others.
