Crypto payments

What we love about Millennials is that they’re down on crypto. And, they want to pay for their burgers with a range of tokens.

According to the report’s writers, “Facilitating borderless, peer-to-peer, and multiple tokens and blockchains, Web3 will convert anything you have in your wallet into payment — bitcoin, NFT, or other digital currency options.” It’s not only what you pay with that will become easier, but also how you pay.

Generation Y and alcohol

What we know about Millennials is that they are huge squares when it comes to alcohol. 33% of respondents expect bars and restaurants to offer a range of non-alcoholic options. More than a third would frequent bars or restaurants without alcohol.

I guess they really like the idea of ​​virtual beer.
