The struggles of the cryptocurrency market at large, which has been going through a crypto winter in the past few weeks, are not deterring Chipotle from believing in the space. The chain said that it now accepts 98 different digital currencies, including bitcoin, ethereum, avalanche, solana and dogecoin, to pay for food at Chipotle with a Flexa-enabled app, according to the release.

This is not the chain’s first foray into cryptocurrency promotions. In April 2021, Chipotle launched a cryptocurrency giveaway, the “Burritos or Bitcoin” promotion, which gave away $100,000 in bitcoin to celebrate National Burrito Day.

“We want to build the next generation of Chipotle fandom by connecting with the Web3 community,” Chris Brandt, chief marketing officer, said in the release. “We’re excited to bring positivity to the crypto conversation by empowering fans to ‘Buy The Dip.'”
