US fast-food restaurant company Shake Shack will give Bitcoin rewards for purchases made via Cash App, the mobile payment service released by Block, a company that delivers financial solutions.
Paying with Cash app’s debit card and using the rewards project, users will get 15% of the paid amount back in BTC. A news article by Wall Street Journal says the possibility will become available from mid-March.
Shake Shack executives said that the program will reveal whether users are willing to have more crypto options. Block (previously Square) released its payment service Cash App in 2013. From 2017, the app has allowed users to trade Bitcoin. Chief Marketing Officer of the company, Jay Livingston told WSJ that users' knowledge of BTC on the application urged
Shake Shack to cooperate with Block to provide BTC cashback.
More and more fast food companies started to show interest in crypto. Taco Bell’s gift card offers users pay with BTC, Ether, Dash, DOGE, and Litecoin. Burger King teamed up with Robinhood to offer rewards to give away crypto rewards.
