It’s not the first time Hungry.dk uses bitcoin as a payment method. Last year to stopped doing it because of the long confirmation time and high fees. Hungry was one of money companies who chose to no longer accept bitcoin. Gaming platform Steam for example dumped bitcoin as a payment option, but they haven’t shown any intention of bringing crypto payments back onto their system.

Most of the shops the accept bitcoin are located in the United States (27%). Other countries with a decent acceptance of bitcoin are Brazil, Spain, Germany, Canada and Italy. Slovenia and the Czech Republic have one of the highest penetration rates of bitcoin-accepting venues per capit; 41.6 locations per one million people in Slovenia and 32.6 per one million in Czech.
