My Menu enables cryptocurrency payment facilities for restaurants

Digital menu platform leverages Dubai’s initiatives to enable guests to pay restaurants in cryptocurrency with first movers in the hospitality sector

My Menu enables restaurants to accept payments in cryptocurrency. Restaurants using My Menu can switch on this feature from their backend. PYMNTS report that 51 percent of cryptocurrency owners are more likely to buy from merchants that accept cryptocurrency.

The idea originates from Prateek Dayal, Co-Founder, and seasoned investor. Dayal has 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.

He added, “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.”

My Menu saw tremendous growth since the start of the pandemic because of the rise in demand for contactless QR Menus. Over the last two years, the company has established itself as the most advanced digital menu system in the world. My Menu boasts of direct integration with industry leaders such as Oracle Micros and also traditional payment gateways such as Stripe, 2Checkout, and Checkout.

Klaus Pigorsch, Managing Director of Tower Links Golf Course and one of the early adaptors of My Menu and Crypto payments, added that “technology plays an important role in our business. We cater to a lot of international golfers, some of them are into crypto so the feature to accept Crypto as a form of payment has been very well received by our guests.”

Abhishek Bose, CEO, and Co-founder of My Menu pointed out, “Being headquartered in Dubai, we are following the lead of the Dubai government and its initiatives that aims to make the Emirate the global centre of crypto assets. As the world evolves and Crypto becomes mainstream, we at My Menu are ahead of the curve and ready to address the demand!”

My Menu is used by the most popular hotel brands such as Sofitel, Fairmont, Raffles, Marriott, JW Marriott Marquis, Sheraton, Westin, Le Meridien, and popular restaurants like Nandos, Carluccios, Hard Rock Café, Jumeirah Restaurants, Noodle House, Gordon Ramsay’s Hell’s Kitchen and many more.
