How it pays our bills

Advertisement

There’s no such thing as a free lunch, so we have to serve ads within our app to make some money and keep the Beerchain running.

User data

We will also collect and sell anonymized data on what kind of beer was scanned, when and where it happened, and so on.

Senior Marketing Advisor

Although he comes from a typical wine region, he prefers the taste of beer, mainly the Bavarian style. So not surprisingly “Augustiner Helles” from Munich is his favorite beer. For more than 20 years he is advising companies in the (digital) communications, marketing and business development space. Being a blockchain enthusiast for over 3 years he aims to drive the awareness for the importance of this technological approach for the whole society. He is used to work in a global environment and has handled various blockchain projects within the last years.

Technical Advisor

Prefers to drink cocktails rather than beer but likes the project nevertheless. Is very busy with his job as an IT consultant, but always has a sympathetic ear for the Beerchain project in his free time. Among his many skills, he has profound knowledge of the blockchain technology. Destroyed some of our ideas and lead others to perfection. Without him, the Beercoin would not be what it is now.
