Interestingly, Starbucks’ free NFT collection has seen impressive numbers in secondary sales generating more than $170,000 in turnover. It seems the coffee giant has taken notice and released its first set of limited edition NFTs called the Siren Collection.
The set included 2,000 NFTs dressed in the company’s famous Siren for $100 apiece. Loyalty program members can purchase up to two stamps with their credit cards or MetaMask wallets.

Despite the issues, the set sold out within an impressive 18 minutes, with the base price of the Siren Stamp rising to $445, according to elegant portal.
