Blockchain-enabled vending machine allows beer purchases.
Civic, the blockchain-based identity app, has partnered with Anheuser-Busch InBev to dispense beer from a blockchain-enabled vending machine in America. Using an app, they can verify the purchaser is over the 21-year-old legal drinking age. The vending machine was piloted at the Consensus 2018 conference in New York in partnership with the world’s largest brewer.
Prospective customers scan a QR code with the Civic app which verifies that they are over the legal drinking age, and the machine dispenses a 12oz can of Budweiser. Hope to dupe this machine by faking your age? Sorry sir! Civic’s own systems have already verified its users’ personal details, including age.
