The connoisseur himself
“NFT, the new age technology has been dominating the world and being part of the emergence has potential opportunities for brands like ours. We have always aimed to stay ahead of the curve and have our audience on Metaverse and Web 3.0 to be the brand’s ambassadors. A premium rewards and benefits program is the heart and soul of ensuring value beyond the impeccably designed digital artwork for Salud NFT collectors. It’s an exciting time for us as we explore the Metaverse and the wearable tech space for possible integrations for the brand and Salud NFT holders in the near future,” Ajay Shetty, Founder & Director of Salud Beverages.
Ishita Banerjee, an integral part of the Salud NFT collection, under the banner of Soul Curry Art has been a fan favourite amongst NFT enthusiasts and has a personal collection made available with her own smart contract as well.
Ishita Bannerjee (Soul Curry Art) said, “As an artist, it has been a sheer delight to be part of this unique project. For me, it was a creative challenge to design for a project that is first-of-its-kind for India and takes the experience of savouring a drink to a different level. Teaming up with Salud and Token Runway for the NFT drop was a great experience. It’s amazing to see a project coming out of India which has utilities that are comparable to the best in the world.”
Priyank Mahajan (Co-founder – Token Runway), mentioned, “It has been an amazing ride from zero to one in terms of Salud’s Web3 journey. The depth with which both teams worked to enable innovative utilities for the NFT holders is a first of many to come for the market.”
