What’s new? Shake Shack, a fast-food restaurant chain, has announced on Twitter that it will refund 15% of the purchase in bitcoins. To take part in the promotion, the establishment’s customers should pay using the CashApp application or its CashCard debit card. The special offer will be available until mid-March.

What do the chain’s representatives say? Jay Livingston, chief marketing officer at Shake Shack, stated that there is not much demand for crypto payments in restaurants, so the company wants to experiment and “test the water” with rewards. He also added that with this move, the establishment wants to attract a younger audience.

Shake Shack is not the only restaurant chain interested in blockchain technologies and cryptocurrency. McDonald’s has already registered trademarks to place its restaurants in the metaverse. Nike, Walmart, and Sketchers are also active in this area.
