Starbucks shutting down Odyssey Beta NFT program

Quick Take

  • Starbucks is ending its NFT program.
  • Starbucks Odyssey Beta will close on March 31.

Starbucks is putting an end to its Odyssey Beta program, an NFT-related extension to its existing rewards system.

The American multinational coffee chain wrote in an official blog post yesterday that the Starbucks Odyssey Beta program "must come to an end to prepare for what comes next as we continue to evolve the program."

Starbucks Odyssey Beta will close on March 31.

The company's nonfungible tokens, called Stamps, will remain accessible on Nifty Gateway, a curated NFT platform. Its Odyssey marketplace will transition to the Nifty marketplace, but Stamps can be — like other NFTs — transferred to external wallets and traded on other marketplaces.

Starbucks Odyssey is also shutting down its Discord server on March 19.

"As we look to evolve the program, we will be keeping the community in mind, and we are working to have a place for members to connect in the future," the company wrote.
