South Korea’s Shuttle Delivery accepts Bitcoin BCH for food deliveries

Yet another merchant, this time in tech-savvy South Korea, has added support for Bitcoin Cash (BCH). Shuttle Delivery, a food delivery service based in Seoul, now accepts Bitcoin BCH as a payment method for door-to-door meal deliveries.

Shuttle Delivery allows its customers to order food from restaurants in Seoul and pay for it using traditional credit cards and Paypal, and, as of Sept. 16, “one of the world’s most popular cryptocurrency,” Bitcoin BCH.

“We are proud to announce that we are the first food delivery company in Korea to accept Bitcoin Cash,” Shuttle Delivery wrote in a blog post. “Shuttle charges no additional fee to pay via Bitcoin Cash. You can use any wallet you have on your phone, and—thanks to our partner solution at BitPay—payments just take a few seconds to confirm. All prices are instantly converted from Korean won to Bitcoin Cash with almost no transaction fees.”

The Shuttle Delivery app, available in both English and Korean for Android and iOS, connects customers to a wide variety of local restaurants, from Korean food to American grill, Indian, vegetarian, Turkish and European cuisine options.

Shuttle’s move to support Bitcoin BCH payment, along with BTC, was met with excitement within the community. On Reddit, user DaSpawn commented: “Now even easier to spend my Cash and keep the stateless economy moving.” Even Bitcoin.com CEO Roger Ver chimed in, saying, “I met with the owner of this company just a few days ago and he is a big BCH fan.”

Many businesses have opened their payment platforms to allow cryptocurrency payment. Aside from Shuttle, Takeaway.com also began supporting Bitcoin BCH payments a few months back and has been connecting its customers with over 30,000 restaurants in Europe and Vietnam.

Note: Tokens on the Bitcoin Core (SegWit) chain are referenced as BTC coins; tokens on the Bitcoin Cash ABC chain are referenced as BCH, BCH-ABC or BAB coins.

Bitcoin Satoshi Vision (BSV) is today the only Bitcoin project that follows the original Satoshi Nakamoto whitepaper, and that follows the original Satoshi protocol and design. BSV is the only public blockchain that maintains the original vision for Bitcoin and will massively scale to become the world’s new money and enterprise blockchain.
