Stellar and Bitcoin SV wrap up the worst performers in the top ten with about 10% drops. It is however not all doom and gloom in crypto land with in terms of adoption metrics. Over the weekend, good news concerning the adoption of Bitcoin as one of the payment methods for Germany’s food delivery platform graced the headlines.
BTC was listed as another payment option on the Berlin-based Lieferando.de platform joining the ranks of staple payment methods including PayPal, American Express, MasterCard, Visa, cash, giropay, and SOFORT.
Lieferando.de operates close to 13,000 restaurants situated across Germany and serves some of the finest delicacies of culinary dream dishes, from fancy to fast food.It is one of the brands under the Takeaway.com global brand which serves close to more than 9 million customers worldwide.
Takeaway.com is one of the largest online food ordering websites and Bitcoin has been part of its payments options since July 2017.
Lieferando.de’s addition of BTC as one of the payment options alongside some of the well-known payment options such as PayPal provides Bitcoin a major boost in terms of legitimacy. Lieferando is one of the biggest local online food delivery chains and customers are going to notice the Orange Bitcoin sign which not only improves the perception of familiarity but this offers some crypto fanatics another avenue to pay for their food.
It is expected that the addition of BTC will be well received by some of Takeaway.com’s Germany customers seeing as it has already tried out the programme in three other countries including the Netherlands, Austria, and Poland with exceptional reception.
