Grubhub, an American online food delivery platform, has come up with an exciting new way to engage its users. The company has partnered with Bitcoin rewards company Lolli to allow its users to earn Bitcoin (BTC) on every order.
Integrating crypto into a simple routine activity – like ordering food online, is yet another effort at driving crypto adoption.

Lolli has partnered with many companies in various sectors to offer customers BTC rewards.
Serving Bitcoin With Food
In a Wednesday announcement, Lolli said that Grubhub customers will earn $5 in BTC on their first order. Subsequently, they would get $1 in BTC on other food orders using the platform’s extension. Before users can enjoy this benefit, they must activate Lolli on web or mobile before placing an order at Grubhub. And after a user earns up to $15, or roughly 0.00026 BTC at the current price of $56,902, they would be able to transfer it to their own virtual wallet.

CEO and Co-founder of Lolli Alex Adelman explained that Lolli’s mission is to integrate bitcoin into aspects of everyday life.
“Food delivery is a ritual for many and bitcoin rewards make bitcoin a part of that ritual. Giving users bitcoin rewards on every Grubhub order is an incredible milestone for bitcoin adoption, making earning BTC easier and more accessible than ever,” he said.
Grubhub’s Director of Growth Marketing, Bridget Scanlan, also expressed her pleasure with the partnership. For Grubhub, it is yet another way to reward its diners.
Last month, the company announced a new innovative food-delivery method to its University of Arizona customers. It now uses delivery robots known as rovers to deliver all orders from on-campus dining locations.

Lolli is, however, not the first – nor will it be the last – company in the food industry to integrate crypto into its products. Just last month, fast-food chain Burger King, in partnership with Robinhood, gave its customers crypto prizes. Members of its Royal Perks loyalty program got to earn BTC, Ethereum (ETH), and Dogecoin (DOGE) after spending $5 or more at the fast-food chain.
Lolli Steadily Pushing Crypto Adoption
According to Lolli, it is the first bitcoin rewards application that allows people to shop online and earn BTC. The company has teamed up with over 1000 top brands and merchants, including Microsoft, Kroger, Sephora, and Macy’s, to offer customers BTC rewards.
Lolli believes that bitcoin is a “global alternative currency and universal store of value and wants to share it with the world.”
