TAIPEI (Taiwan News) – Taiwan’s Shiyun fried chicken store has launched limited edition non-fungible tokens (NFTs) for its fried chicken and other products, and they’ve gone viral.
Since 1984 at Shida Night Market, Shiyun Fried Chicken Shop has won over customers with its delicious fried foods, such as Chicken Nuggets, Broccoli, and King Trumpet Mushrooms. Now, Shiyun’s Iconic Foods have been minted as NFT, with limited editions ranging from 80 to 500 tokens.
At 3 a.m. on Saturday (November 27), the food stand launched NFTs on the Oursong blockchain platform for $ 1 OSD (US $ 1) each. “We opened the account just for fun, and the auction prices are much higher than expected,” Shiyun said in a statement.
As of Monday night, the offer price for NFT broccoli hit $ 50,000 OSD, followed by fried chicken at $ 1,999 OSD and fried squid at $ 500 OSD. Another NFT Fried Chicken sold for $ 350 OSD.
For its part, the store said NFT holders can use their tokens to receive food in person. They don’t have to trade the digital asset, just show proof of ownership.
