Shiba Inu and Dogecoin accepted as payment by food delivery company Uber Eats


Shiba Inu and Dogecoin holders can now pay for Uber Eats food deliveries with their cryptocurrencies via BitPay.

Other cryptocurrencies supported by BitPay include Bitcoin, Ethereum, Bitcoin Cash, Litecoin, XRP, Dai, Wrapped Bitcoin (WBTC), and stablecoins.

According to a BitPay blog post, since Uber Eats does not yet accept direct cryptocurrency payments, this payment method is exclusive to BitPay gift cards and BitPay cards. Alternative payment methods include BitPay partner Menufy, which accepts payments from cryptocurrency wallets for takeout or delivery from regional or national restaurant chains.

Food delivery companies such as DoorDash and GrubHub, as well as take-out restaurants such as Grill, Chili’s, Carrabba’s Italian Grill, Steak ‘n Shake and more, accept crypto through BitPay.

The acceptance of cryptocurrencies as a means of payment is currently growing. Over the past few weeks, U.Today has reported that luxury watchmakers like Tag Heuer, Hublot, and Breitling are accepting cryptocurrencies through payment processor BitPay.

In addition to luxury goods and food deliveries, Panini America, a company specializing in sports collectibles, has announced the upcoming launch of its crypto wallet which will support cryptocurrencies such as Shiba Inu, Bitcoin and others in collaboration with BitPay. Panini America, a multinational publisher of trading cards, stickers, comic books and children’s periodicals, is based in the United States.
