What it does

  • Supports Small Businesses during the economic downturn and beyond.

  • Provides sanitary, touch-less hospitality services and payments between small businesses and their customers.

  • Is an Online Digital Directory of businesses and services that makes Yelp and Yellow Pages look like relics of a distant past.

  • Provides management tools for small business operators through a simple, intuitive App, aggregating all digital data the business creates and displays it onto easy to manage dashboards.

  • Allows members to redeem Piña Points for services and products at local businesses.

  • Incentivizes and Rewards:

How I built it

The deep knowledge of 20+ years in the hospitality industry from restaurants to hotels, from luxury to boutique, fine dining to quick service and corporations to mom and pop.

Providing 5-Star service by implementing quality feedback from customers is EVERYTHING to a businesses growth!

5-Star Hospitality and Quality Feedback is extremely valuable, and that value has never been captured until now.

EOS Long Island Meetup was formed to bring likeminded individuals together to create community driven Apps that drive integrity and inclusion, aligning the interests of all parties involved.

Our first meetup was held in September 2018 where Kevin Rose joined us to introduce EOS to our community.

Since then we've been active in the space absorbing and educating ourselves on all we can pertaining to development, regulation and overall progress of EOSIO software.

Timing is everything and NOW is the perfect time to launch our main project Piña, which will help rebuild small businesses in your local community during these difficult times of uncertainty.

Did you know?

Pineapples are International symbols of Hospitality and a symbolic way of saying “you are perfect” when presented to someone.

Gate posts and door frames often have pineapples to signal a Welcome.

Challenges I ran into

  • Finding local team members and investors that understand the basics of blockchain technology and more specifically EOSIO.

  • Sacrificing family time to work on my dream project.

  • Funding.

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

  • Creating the first EOSIO Hospitality & Service Industry dApp.

  • Networking and building a small team of professionals and advisors looking to make the world a better place.

What I learned

Blockchain ain't easy, but it sure is FUN!

What's next for Piña

  • Continue to build and implement blockchain technology into the back-end of the App.

  • Find team members passionate about the vision of Piña.

  • Onboard small business partners.

  • Advertise with social media influencers interested in the project.
