A tech firm is offering restaurants access to a digital menu platform that will allow guests to pay in cryptocurrency.
My Menu’s latest feature enables restaurants to accept digital assets as a mode of payment, instantly once enabled.
It boasts direct integration with industry leaders such as Oracle Micros and also traditional payment gateways such as Stripe, 2Checkout, and Checkout.
Co-founder Prateek Dayal said: “I have personally been investing in the crypto space for more than four years. It is one of the most exciting financial opportunities available to investors at this time.
“The only hindrance I see in the growth of crypto is the inability to use it in our daily lives. Hence, I have been advocating to enable crypto payments for My Menu since we started and now I am happy we have the technical interface in place to launch this feature.”
The Dubai-based firm provides menu technology to more than 3,500 restaurants and 450 hotels across 70 countries.
Customers include Nandos, Carluccios, Hard Rock Café, Jumeirah Restaurants, Noodle House, Gordon Ramsay’s Hell’s Kitchen, as well as Accor, Sofitel, Fairmont, Raffles, Marriott and Sheraton.
My Menu has seen significant growth since the start of the pandemic due to the rise in demand for contactless QR menus, otherwise known as scan menus.
