BlockBar launches new smartphone app

Global wine and spirits marketplace BlockBar has launched a smartphone app, designed to allow its community better access to the maketplace’s features.

Launched in 2021 by cousins Dov and Sam Falic as an early entry to the world of NFT trading, BlockBar was created as a way to streamline the collecting of wine and spirits. The new app now enables users to join a ‘waiting room’ to buy new releases and receive notifications about offers, gifts and upcoming product launches.

The app also allows users to view their BlockBar wine and spirits collection, as well as add to their collection by making purchases in-app. Further functionality soon to be added includes ability to bid on live auctions, purchase on the secondarymarketplace and redeem bottles set to roll-out soon.

Jamie Ritchie, COO of BlockBar, comments: "BlockBar has experienced remarkable growth, with 70% of our audience using mobile, so it is a natural evolution for BlockBar to introduce our new app, which makes collecting wines and spirits even easier. Now, wherever you are in the world, you can more easily manage your collection and purchase releases from your smartphone. We anticipate the app launch to initiate a new phase of growth for BlockBar.”

Along with the app, BlockBar has unveiled its new logo with a fluid hexagon motif.

The BlockBar app is available to download now from the Apple App Store.
