Bitcoin News: Famous for its pastries and its Vikings, Denmark now wants to be famous for being the pioneer of mainstream Bitcoin (BTC) adoption. Denmark’s bitcoin users can order online takeaway from over 1,500 restaurants by using Hungry.dk.
Not many places around the globe that allow you to buy food via BTC. Come to think of it does not seems a great idea when one would have paid way more or way less for their food in case the market goes up or low. However, if certain food chains start expecting BTC as a payment method, it does imply that cryptocurrencies are being adopted in the mainstream.
Hungry.dk did not include the BTC payment feature recently, it has been offering the service as far back as 2014. However, they did discontinue this service for a while. As they resume it a Hungry.dk representative elaborates the matter to Bitcoinist, he stated:
We have accepted Bitcoins as a payment method for quite some time. We decided to remove the feature temporarily last year though because the average transaction time took too long, and the experience wasn’t the best. The problems have since been solved, and we have added the option again… Hungry.dk handle the payment, so you will always be able to use Bitcoins with all the restaurants currently found on Hungry.dk.
During the explosion in price and mass interest in 2017, a lot of merchants started to accept bitcoin payments. Though the crypto community is still waiting for merchants in the likes of Amazon and Apple to start such services. But there two key hindrances here, for one, as we mentioned above the flight fluctuation, BTC achieved its all-time high last year and is on the verge of touching its all-time low this year. Another point is that BTC holders are more of hoarders, they prefer using the token as a store of value than spending it.
In saying that, when in Denmark, do enjoy paying with your bitcoin stashes.
