The Foodverse is growing and how. The revolutionary concept of the world’s first Food Metaverse on the blockchain has caught the eye of foodies around the world, and now they have more reasons to be excited. Celebrity Chefs Arnold Poernomo, Saransh Goila & Jaimie Van Heije have collaborated with OneRare to celebrate their culinary journey as NFTs in the foodverse.

With the rapidly growing reach of the blockchain, the Chefs will get to interact with international audiences for the first time and introduce them to exciting culinary concepts from their part of the world.

With their successful fundraise of $2M from notable angels like & the biggest funds in crypto, OneRare is now ready to grow their Foodverse on Polygon chain. OneRare’s engaging gameplay brings the global F&B industry onto the blockchain for the first time, and keeping in mind the global appeal of Food, the project is striving to partner with top chefs from various countries to celebrate culinary delights from every corner of the world.

With a large social media following, Goila champions Indian food & believes the metaverse will be a true turning point for bringing regional cuisines to the global forefront.

“From being a chef in my home kitchen to teaching and creating recipes virtually I’ve learnt that food really has no boundaries. Super excited to explore this new chapter of food in the metaverse by OneRare. The fact that you can create your favourite recipes in the metaverse and own dish NFTs is fascinating for me.
