Just Eat, a food ordering platform that operates in 13 countries, now accepts cryptocurrency for food orders from more than 15,000 restaurants around France. News.Bitcoin.com reports that this decision is most likely a result of the acquisition of the food platform by Takeaway.com. The latter food ordering website also accepts cryptocurrency.
According to the source, users can choose Bitcoin as their payment method option and then pay with any cryptocurrency supported by Bitpay. There are many cryptocurrency options, so all users need to do after selecting the crypto payment is to choose the corresponding wallet and receive a QR-code.
Just Eat is a food ordering platform that started operating in 2001. The website of the company lists the countries where the platform operates. Those include the US, Canada, Mexico, Brazil, Australia, New Zealand, Denmark, Norway, Ireland, Italy, France, Spain, and Switzerland. Takeaway acquired the company in February 2020.
Allowing users to pay for their food orders in cryptocurrency is a solid step toward wider cryptocurrency adoption. Countries around the world are taking their own steps to achieve this goal. In Slovenia, for instance, more than 1,000 locations now also accept payments in cryptocurrency. Moreover, the number of Bitcoin ATMs around the world has already reached more than 8,000.
