Origin Kebabs, a popular Australian fast food chain, is now accepting crypto payments for the kebabs in its menu. The firm has also incorporated the Lighting Network for quick and hassle-free payments. With this initiative, Origin Kebabs will enable Aussie kebab-lovers to use Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies to buy kebabs, falafel, and other authentic menu items. The firm has also partnered with Binance’s partly owned Australian travel firm ‘TravelbyBit.
Australia has been one of the most pro-crypto active countries when it comes to blockchain endeavors and development. Accepting cryptocurrencies and incorporating the Lighting Network to the payment system of Origin Kebabs may start a new trend of making payments in cryptocurrency at other fast food chain operators.
Origin Kebabs is on its way to rolling out the Bitcoin payment at four Queensland stores: Queensland University of Technology (QUT), Westfield Chermside, Broadbeach, and Eagleby. The firm is currently on the testing phase and may provide the alternative method of payment to its consumers across Australia if things will go well with trials. Apart from Bitcoin, Origin Kebabs will also accept Binance Coin (BNB), Ethereum (ETH)trade and Litecoin (LTC)trade. All Bitcoin payments will be carried out on Lightning Network which is an added advantage for ultra-fast and secure transactions.
Relating to the incorporation of crypto payments and the Lighting Network, Burhan Goktas, Origin Kebabs General Manager stated:
“After learning about crypto, I knew I had to make it a part of our business. It’s a no-brainer to sign up with TravelbyBit. I am very excited that Origin Kebabs is going to be the first to adopt BNB payments at the point of sale, following the launch of the new Binance chain.”
Origin Kebabs is also in talks with Coca-Cola for a possible partnership which might add a lot to the credibility to the whole operation and help the company to further utilize the potential of this decentralized system.
Talking about upcoming potential sponsorship with Coca-Cola, Goktas further added that “If we can get someone like Coca-Cola on board it just adds to the credibility of cryptocurrency, we’d encourage other major chains in the country to trial it to help further adoption. Jump on board!”
Announcing the partnership, TravelbyBit, the Australia- based Tourism cryptocurrency-payments startup has labeled the Origin Kebabs as ‘Australian’s first Bitcoin drive-through restaurant.’
