After some skepticism, some small companies, such as restaurants and cafés, that were badly impacted by the pandemic-induced lockdown are now warming to the notion of using bitcoin to make up for their losses over the last two years. A restaurant in New Delhi’s Connaught Place has chosen to take Bitcoin, Ethereum, Dogecoin, and other cryptocurrencies as payment. To entice guests, the restaurant Ardor 2.1 has created a unique “Digital Thaali.”
Baahubali Thaali, United India Thaali, and 56 Inch Thaali are just a few of the restaurant’s thaali titles.
Ardor 2.1’s Digital Thaali (which is suitable for both vegetarians and non-vegetarians) includes dishes named after cryptocurrency. Polygon Pita And Falafel, Bunny Burger With Chilli Fries, Solana Chana Bhatura, Ethereum Butter Chicken With Kulcha, Doge Fried Rice, and Bitcoin Tikka are just a few of the dishes available.
Bunny is a payment solution platform built on the Ethereum blockchain, while Polygon is a protocol and framework for constructing and connecting Ethereum-compatible blockchain networks.
Solana is a public blockchain platform that has long been seen as a competitor to Ethereum.
In a video by Delhi Food Nest, the restaurant’s owner stated that people who pay in bitcoin will receive a 20 percent discount.
“With a totally digital menu, we decided to provide our visitors a digital experience. After hearing about it from one of my pals, we were considering doing something in crypto. Despite the fact that it is a grey area, we decided to “go ahead and give it a go.” We also wanted to see how many individuals were interested in crypto,” the owner explained.
Non-vegetarians will pay Rs. 2,099 (plus taxes) for a Digital Thaali, while vegetarians would pay Rs. 1,999 (plus taxes). The eatery looks to be capitalizing on the bitcoin mania.
