MIAMI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--ShiftPixy, Inc. (NASDAQ: PIXY) (the “Company”), a Florida-based national staffing enterprise that designs, manages, and sells access to a disruptive, revolutionary platform that facilitates employment in the rapidly growing Gig Economy, today announced the development of a robust non-fungible token (NFT) gamification loyalty program, with plans to release it in 2022 as the Company prepares for the launch of its Ghost Kitchen food brands.
With over 40 million people moving through the metaverse every month, an increase in cybernetic tools, and positive sentiment around ghost kitchens, the Company has created an opportunity to elevate the restaurant industry and give rise to a new era of dining. By leveraging ShiftPixy’s technological expertise, this can digitally bridge physical distances in real-time between friends and family through a fully immersive, mixed reality experience built for today’s digital expectations.
“We intend for our brands to immerse our consumers into an augmented and mixed reality experience that will test every tradition and legacy in consumer marketing,” commented ShiftPixy Co-Founder and CEO Scott Absher. “We believe that this will show the world a high-value use case for monetizing the metaverse. As we move forward with this endeavor, we plan to increase our offerings and boost our footprint in the digital world.”
The NFT Loyalty program is expected to incorporate Web, In-App Gamification, and Augmented Reality (AR) tied to brand NFTs. NFTs will be available to consumers that sign up for ShiftPixy’s food brand ordering apps. The Company is designing the NFT Loyalty program to allow consumers to take their custom NFT into the in-app games to win rewards and free food items. Once successfully implemented, consumers will be able to experience the AR NFTs through unique QR codes within the NFT profiles of each respective avatar in the collection. Additionally, consumers can expect the AR experience to continue in the ordering apps, through an augmented 3D menu interface that brings each food item to life with hyperrealist interactive features.
