  • The Starbucks partnership with Polygon could mean big news for its future value.

Polygon (MATIC/USD) has teamed up with Starbucks Coffee Company to enable the company to give its loyalty program customers an opportunity to buy and earn collectible non-fungible token (NFT) stamps.

Starbucks Coffee Company has chosen the Polygon network to launch their collectible digital stamps as a power of its Web3 program, Starbucks Odyssey.

MATIC is the native cryptocurrency that is used to power all of this.

The Starbucks partnership as a catalyst for growth

In recent cryptocurrency news, we covered how Polygon raised $50 million for a Web3-focused fund. 

Starbucks will now utilize Polygon to launch digital collectible stamp NFTs as part of the Starbucks Odyssey program.

The program is planned to launch later this year. However, there is a waitlist for customers, which went live on September 12, 2022.

This will bring an additional use-case to the blockchain as well as more demand for MATIC as a cryptocurrency, which can drive its value up.
