Spending Bitcoin has never been easier, even though many people have tried to buy food and drinks with their beloved digital currency and come up empty-handed. On the other hand, there is the 10,000 Bitcoin Pizza, a milestone in the history of Bitcoin. Luckily for us, buying food online with Bitcoin has become a lot easier compared to how hard it was a few years ago.
Takeaway.com – All Sorts of Food Around The World
Bitcoin adoption received a boost when popular service Takeaway.com started to accept Bitcoin payments as of last year. Most people may have never heard of Takeaway.com, as they are the overarching company of multiple online food delivery services, such as Pizza.be, Thuisbezorgd.nl and Lieferando.de.
What I like about the service provided by Takeaway.com is the fact they manage to sign up nearly all takeaway/fast food/delivery restaurants on their platform, through which customers can place an online order. Instead of having to dig up the phone number of that pizza place you want to order from, just order online from the comfort of your home.
On top of that, Takeaway.com – and its subsidiary sites – let you track your order status online. Plus, you can even schedule the delivery time that suits you best. Want that kebab on Sunday afternoon at 3pm? Not a problem, just select the delivery time from the dropdown menu, and the restaurant will get your order to your home at that exact time.
Furthermore, because of their vast catalog of participating restaurants, Takeaway.com offers all kinds of food. Ranging from pasta to fries, onion rings to kebab, Indian to Grill and everything in between. In fact, by using the Takeaway.com service, you may discover new places at a location near you which are worth exploring.
Ideal Service At Home or Abroad
I did mention a few times how Takeaway.com offered an excellent service to order food from the comfort of your home. But it goes much further than just that, as you can order anything you want, anywhere you are. Visiting a friend and feeling hungry? Get your order delivered at their doorstep while you’re there.
But what may be even more impressive is when you travel abroad. Earlier this year, I was attending a Bitcoin conference in London, which was held on Saturday and Sunday. Now, I could spend a lot of money on dining at a restaurant, but I decided to look at the Takeaway.com website & see if there were any good places near my hotel.
So I stumbled across this kebab shop which was less than 5 minutes by foot from the hotel, but it was in a direction I hadn’t explored yet. After checking the ratings – it got a ⅘, which is quite high for a kebab shop in London – I decided to go over there and see it for myself. Granted, I didn’t pay in Bitcoin, nor get the food delivered to the hotel, but it did show me a new place to which I’ll return on my next trip to London.
