  • The Starbucks Odyssey will enable collectors to obtain digital collectible stamps via NFTs.

Polygon (MATIC) price has started a convincing ascent after the blockchain network revealed its partnership with premier coffee company Starbucks. As part of the collaboration, Polygon will assist Starbucks in the creation of its Web3 project named ‘Starbucks Odyssey’.

According to the announcement, the endeavor will enable Starbucks to enable employees and members of its loyalty reward program to earn or buy digital collectible stamps. Specifically, these digital stamps will come in the form of non-fungible tokens (NFTs).

 The partnership also mentioned that the Starbucks Odyssey will launch possibly before the end of 2022. However, customers interested in the experience can already sign up to get waitlisted once the project has launched.

One hour after the announcement, MATIC price shot up convincingly. In fact, earlier today, MATIC price was struggling to capture the $0.90 territory. However, since Polygon has announced the partnership, MATIC price has increased up to $0.92 with little resistance. At the time of writing, MATIC price is at $0.925, according to CoinGecko.
