Chipotle now accepting Shiba Inu, Dogecoin at US restaurants

Who let the crypto dogs out? Chipotle!

Chipotle just announced that customers may now use cryptocurrency at its more than 2,975 Chipotle restaurants in the United States.

From Shiba Inu to Dogecoin, now anyone can pay for their favorite burritos and guac with cryptocurrencies by simply tapping “Chipotle” on a Flexa-enabled app. Payment is instantly with a single scan (processing takes less than a second).

Many people suspected that Chipotle might enter the crypto game soon when it launched a spot in the Metaverse. They were right.

To celebrate, the company is offering “10% off your next meal” to anyone who pays with a Gemini or SPEDN app (both Flexa-enabled apps).

Hungry? Find a Chipotle near you. Woof woof!

What’s Flexa? Flexa is “the first network to offer transactions that are 100% digitally secured from source to settlement. Unlike a traditional bank or payment card transaction, Flexa payments don’t involve sending any sensitive customer account information through the network. Instead, each Flexa transaction starts and ends with a unique, digital authorization code that can’t be decrypted or reversed. Being completely digital makes Flexa payments exceptionally fast and secure.” Extra bonus: “Flexa balances the carbon emissions for all of its blockchain and operating activities with verified carbon offsets to maintain a completely carbon-negative network.”
