Cryptocurrencies have achieved widespread recognition, with major worldwide centralized institutions embracing them and offering security precautions for those who invest in them. Since then, prominent cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Dogecoin, to mention a few, have found traction in a variety of industries around the world, including the food business.
Restauranteurs and hoteliers are outdoing themselves in terms of creativity by opening cryptocurrency-themed restaurants all around the world. There are crypto eateries that take digital currencies as payment, as well as street food places and cafes that have developed lucrative menus with meals named after some of the most popular digital currencies.
While some consider joining the bandwagon purely for the belief in crypto and its underlying technology, others join the band to just cash in the growing popularity of cryptocurrencies.
