Looks like NFT themed Bored & Hungry restaurant no longer accepts crypto

The Los Angeles Times reported The recently opened NFT-themed burger joint Bored & Hungry no longer accepts cryptocurrency as a means of payment for its food.

When asked, a Bored & Hungry employee told the Los Angeles Times, “Not today — I don’t know.” The person gave no indication of when the decision was made to remove crypto from the payment options menu, nor did they know whether crypto payments would pay off.

Bored & Hungry was originally launched in April this year. At the time, an employee told the Los Angeles Times that the majority of his customers didn’t seem to care about crypto payment options, also noting that customers were generally indifferent to “the restaurant’s allegiance to the crypto cause.”

Another Bored & Hungry restaurant owner told the Los Angeles Times, “People want to hold onto their ethereum. They won’t want to use it.” Customer Richard Rubalcaba said “I don’t know how” [crypto purchases] would work, with the crash.”

Many of the restaurant’s customers stated that they are not hardcore crypto enthusiasts, and simply visit the establishment for the food. Client Jessica Perez said, “We’re reviewing this over there with In-N-Out, maybe even better.”

Changes to the venue’s payment policies appear to be in line with the overarching crypto and macroeconomic collapse unfolding around the world. But never fear, hungry crypto users! You can still visit Chipotle, which started accepting crypto payments through Flexa earlier in June. Several countries are facing brutal regulation and scrutiny and there are contagion issues in the crypto market.
