Pizza Hut stores in Venezuela now accept Bitcoin as payment. In a Nov. 27 tweet from crypto services firm CryptoBuyer, the firm announced that Pizza Hut stores in the South American nation now accept crypto as a form of payment for food and drinks. The step follows a crypto firm collaborating with Mega Soft to accelerate acceptance in Venezuela by facilitating crypto payments to more than 20,000 stores and businesses.
“Pizza Hut nowadays cannot be detached from these technological advances and all those incorporating new approaches for daily necessities,” said Richard ElKhouri, General Director for Venezuelan operations of the pizza chain, in an interview with local news outlet ElAxioma. “It is important that we accommodate young people, modern adults, and people technologically knowledgeable.”
Using CryptoBuyer, customers can purchase pizza at the restaurant chain with Bitcoin (BTC), Litecoin (LTC), Dash (DASH), Binance Coin (BNB), Binance USD (BUSD), Ether (ETH), Tether (USDT), Dai (DAI), and its native token XPT. Pizza Hut has locations in the capital, Caracas, as well in the cities of Maracay, Maracaibo and Barquisimeto.
