Aussies Kebab Lovers Can Now Lunch With Binance Coin, Other Cryptocurrencies

Aussie Kebab lovers can now buy kebabs, falafel, and other foods with crypto.

Origin Kebabs, Australia’s famous fast food chain, is the first restaurant chain to accept payments with Binance’s new cryptocurrency, among others. They are partnering with a travel fintech company TravelbyBit and running on the Lightning Network for faster transaction processing.

“I am very excited that we are going to be the first to adopt BNB payments at Point of Sale, following the launch of the new Binance Chain,” says the company’s general manager Burhan Göktas.

Besides that, as the fast food venture itself claims, they are “Australia’s first drive-thru bitcoin restaurants.”

According to a post on their Facebook page, the cryptocurrencies accepted by Origin Kebabs are Bitcoin (BTC), Litecoin (LTC), Binance Coin (BNB), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), and Ethereum (ETH).

Origin Kebabs has gotten some good publicity when its Bitcoin payments ad was blocked by Facebook. The unintended result of this was an unintended news coverage — including an article by Yahoo. The screenshot posted by the site shows that they would have paid $88 for the ad. Ironically they probably got themselves more exposure without spending a dime, than if they had spent money on an ad.

Göktas has already discussed a potential sponsorship with Coca-Cola. “If we can get someone like Coca-Cola on board it just adds to the credibility of cryptocurrency,” he said.

For the moment, crypto payments are being tested in 4 Queensland Origin Kebab locations: Queensland University of Technology (QUT), Westfield Chermside, Broadbeach, and Eagleby. However, if the cryptocurrency payments go well, Origin Kebabs plans to roll out the new payment option across its 49 stores.

TravelbyBit is an Australian startup helping cryptocurrency enthusiasts travel the world with cryptocurrencies, one of their projects being the world’s first digital currency-friendly airport in Brisbane.
