We get it: You’re tired of hearing that the future is ‘now’, but trust us on this: When it comes to a next-level way to enjoy cocktails, the future is most certainly now.
Using game theory, TEZAREKT, a Singapore-born platform, co-founded by famed Singaporean beatboxer Dharni, has created an algorithm that spares you from the tedium of picking your drink from a menu. Their visionary setup hinges on a concept of play that is inspired by the universally beloved Gachapon game and operates on random number generation.
You can experience the discernment of the system IRL at JU95, a contemporary izakaya. It’s the physical site where digital tokens awarded by the algorithm can be used to unlock its heady offerings.
Players can choose from a range of premium spirits – including Hibiki 21Year Old, Plantation Rum and Widges Gin – and mixers such as salted caramel, lychee and passion fruit. The three modes EZPZ ($19.50), Normal ($23) and Get Rekt ($26) are composed of a varying mix of spirits and mixers. The spontaneity of chance is also celebrated in the prizes and rewards that can be unlocked from partnering sponsors. Additionally, TEZAREKT’s in-house NFT Tezarean, which will be in circulation end-July, entitles players to perks in the form of loyalty points, minting drinks to NFTs and connecting with the metaverse’s multitude of avatars.
As the NFT frontier continues to expand and evolve to be more totalising and revolutionary, the platform marks an inviting and exemplary transition from Web2.0 Web3, to a future where being able to say that the possibilities are limitless will become less of a dream and more of a reality.
JU95 is at 41 Boat Quay, Singapore 049830.
