Huge news right?
Okay, actually this is something that happened five years ago during a project that kickstarted in 2013. Did you know that you can buy your Dominoes using Bitcoin? Infact, now, you can purchase your pizzas with over 50 different cryptocurrencies?
Now before you go rushing to your beloved Dominoes app, bear with me. In order for this to work, you need to visit www.pizzaforcoins.com.
This is an incredible platform for pizza purchasing. PizzaForCoins is essentially a middleman that facilitates cryptocurrency payments to some of your favourite pizza takeaways. The restaurants on offer basically depend on where you live. If there’ a chain-pizza restaurant nearby, chances are this website will facilitate crypto-pizza-ordering for you, seriously.
All you have to do is go to the website, enter your address, choose your favourite store and then the website will take you to an up to date menu. The menus are a direct reflection of what you would expect to see on the Domino's website yet on PizzaForCoins, the price is displayed in BTC.
At the time of writing, a large Domino’s Pizza in the UK costs 0.002000BTC.
The website cleverly puts your order in for you and then re-pays the restaurant in fiat currency, so the restaurant itself don’t need to make any changes, they simply receive your order and send it out for delivery. You simply put your order in online and pay in which ever cryptocurrency you choose (assuming your option is supported).
Isn’t technology fantastic?
This is a great way to get rid of any loose crypto-change you may have, if there's such a thing.
This has been around for some time now, it’s hardly a groundbreaking system but it does provide another option for crypto-investors who want to find new ways to spend their currencies. Perhaps one day we will see the likes of Domino’s accept cryptocurrency payments, indeed it is within their best interest to do so.
Obviously, this service is online only, you can’t pay for pizza with cryptocurrency in store at the moment at any of the aforementioned restaurants. Perhaps things may be different at your local takeaway as more independent businesses get behind the blockchain.
