How to spice up your life with crypto
Hungry customers will first have to choose the restaurant they want to dine at, then download the Gemini or SPEDN app to store the crypto. The chosen app must be compatible with Flexa, which can store up to 98 different cryptocurrencies, including but not limited to:
To celebrate the new crypto integration, Chipotle is offering a 10% discount to all customers who purchase a meal at Chipotle using a Flexa-enabled payment app. Diners will be able to take advantage of the offer and make crypto payments at nearly 3,000 restaurants across the United States.
Burrito or bitcoin?
Just a few months ago, on the first Thursday in April, Chipotle celebrated National Burrito Day, and with great success. Customers at Chipotle restaurants in the United States were given the opportunity to play a mini-game in which they had to crack a 6-digit code in order to win either a burrito or a random amount of Bitcoin (BTC). An offer through which everyone wins, regardless of crypto enthusiasm.
Starbucks (NASDAQ:) is already accepting crypto
Starbucks was the first company to collaborate with the Flexa payment system, enabling crypto payments in stores nationwide. The coffee powerhouse has taken steps to highlight the importance of blockchain technology in its business ventures and will soon introduce a Web 3.0 space called “The Third Place”, where coffee lovers around the world will feel at home.
Ultimately, it looks like the best restaurants in the world are rapidly embracing crypto, especially because of the convenience it provides for tech-savvy people to pay for meals.
