Marvin again accepting bitcoin, meaning you can order takeaways in 18 counties

It’s still relatively rare to find individual places in Ireland that accept crypto for payment, but some time ago Marvin, a competitor to Just-Eat offering takeaway food delivered to your house, had accepted bitcoin (and we reviewed this process) . However it was short lived, and during early 2017 the removed the ability to pay with bitcoin around the same time that the bitcoin network was flooded with hundreds of thousands of unconfirmed transactions.

But no more, as when using the site recently, I noticed that the bitcoin payment option is again re-enabled on the site. So what this means in practice is that if you are in one of the towns across the 18 counties they operate in (which are Carlow, Clare, Cork, Donegal, Dublin, Galway, Kildare, Kilkenny, Laois, Limerick, Louth, Meath, Sligo, Tipperary, Waterford, Westmeath, Wexford and Wicklow), you can now pay for your spice bag or 3-in-1 with bitcoin should you choose.
