Domino’s Pizza gets in party mood with Bitcoin competition

Domino’s Pizza has launched a Euro 100,000 Bitcoin prize competition in France, to mark its 30th anniversary.

As announced on Twitter, customers will be able to participate in games while ordering pizzas from the retailer until 2nd October, while purchase registration will be available until 6th October, according to the campaign’s website. Domino's will transfer the Bitcoin prize to the winner’s wallet on 16th December, or they can also choose to be rewarded in cash.

SingularityNET

This is not Domino's first excursion into the blockchain and crypto space. In May, we reported that the Malaysia & Singapore part of the business was partnering with decentralised platform/AI venture SingularityNET.

It will be using SingularityNET’s AI algorithms to help optimise people’s time and resources and ways to deliver goods. The deal was pitched as the first time a multi-national company had chosen a decentralised open source AI solution instead of a closed circuit, centralised standard player to meet these challenges. All the activities will be recorded and monetised using the SingularityNET native token.

We are currently in the midst of transforming our core products and our data delivery platform to bring more speed and efficiency to our customers. Our newest transformation effort is occurring in our operations function, where we are automating significant portions of our delivery operations and consolidating our operations centres. SingularityNET’s AI algorithms and services will allow us to explore these efficiencies at scale,” said Domino’s Chief Executive Officer Ba U Shan-Ting.

SingularityNET CEO Ben Goertzel commented: “Embracing AI is what every company is going to need to do if they are going to succeed and flourish in the coming period. The projects we are discussing with Domino’s now are envisioned as the start of a long series of creative and transformative AI collaborations.  We are proud to embark on a future partnership with Domino’s to achieve their ambition of becoming the leader in pizza delivery and customer brand loyalty by 2020.”
