First Friday–Blockchain & Chinatown: Thoughtfully Designing Technology
May 6, 2022
Welcome to Chinatown and its collaborators are working towards bringing a digital loyalty program to Chinatown. The intention is to have a community-defined loyalty program that incentivizes more visitors to the neighborhood and equips small businesses with analytic data to further their business planning. What are the needs of the Chinatown small business owners and what do currently-existing loyalty programs fail to provide? What are the benefits of a blockchain-based loyalty system? How did they incorporate their learnings from an NFT launch into the program? This panel is moderated by Vic Lee of Welcome to Chinatown and will feature Nikhil Kumar of Solana Labs, Creative Technologist Cy Kim, and Justin Ng & Rhea Jiang of SPACED AGENCY.
