Did you know you can buy a sub with cryptocurrency?

“Bitcoin can’t be used to buy anything,” they used to say. Well, we know it’s not true.
An interesting fact: One of the first business establishments in the United States to accept Bitcoin was Subway, a healthy sandwich restaurant chain. In fact, Subway started accepting Bitcoin and Litecoin as a means of payment back in 2013. The first news reached the general public in November 2013, thanks to a young Bitcoin fan that shared on her blog that one Subway establishment began to accept digital currencies as a form of payment in Allentown, Pennsylvania (US). The employees of that restaurant later shared to a Coindesk writer, “Some [customers] told us they traveled four hours, and all they only bought [was] a few cookies.” Surely, Bitcoin enthusiasts in the US were happy that day.

Subway-Russia discount

Some Subway restaurants not only accept the cryptocurrency, but offer its customers a 10% discount for using the cryptocurrency for payment. A picture of one such Moscow-based restaurant in Russia was tweeted on November 3, 2013 by a Bitcoin software developer Alberto Gómez Toribio, who said the picture was taken by a friend visiting Russia.

Soon Subway shops started accepting Bitcoin at a few other locations around the world: Slovakia, Argentina, and Czech Republic, and some, besides Bitcoin, started accepting Litecoin from its customers.

In Venezuela, Some Subways adopted DASH, a cryptocurrency that is more popular in that country than the national cryptocurrency, Petro.

Should the store owners update their slogan to “Subway: Eat fresh for cryptocurrency?”
