A self-described “community of Olive Garden fans” are minting and selling NFTs of Olive Garden locations around the country, despite not having any affiliation with Olive Garden, Futurism reported.
Dubbed “Non-Fungible Olive Gardens,” each NFT is an ERC-721 token that corresponds to a real-life Olive Garden. An image of the location is laid over backgrounds of the restaurant’s offerings, including including fettuccine alfredo, chicken marsala and more.
The token artwork isn’t in any way affiliated with Olive Garden or its parent company, Darden Restaurants.
“While every Non-fungible Olive Garden is tethered to a real Olive Garden, ownership is currently limited to the Non-fungible Olive Garden Metaverse, granting owners no rights or privileges in meatspace Olive Gardens,” the project’s website reads.
Priced at $20 USD each, an initial launch of 880 Olive Garden NFTs has already sold out. The website also offers the unlimited opportunity to “mint a breadstick” for free.
The creators have outlined a roadmap of their future plans for Olive Garden in the metaverse, including an “open-world Olive Garden RPG” and a limited-edition drop of “Scampi Sneakers.”
