The utility of the second-biggest meme-based cryptocurrency Shiba Inu (SHIB) has continued to skyrocket on a daily basis.
According to a recent announcement, Shiba Inu enthusiasts can now use the cryptocurrency to pay for services rendered by food delivery service companies UberEats and DooDash.

SHIB holders can indirectly make payments to the two food delivery companies via initiatives launched by popular cryptocurrency payment provider BitPay.
Based on the development, Shiba Inu users can order food online from their favorite restaurants and have it delivered straight to their doorsteps by two popular food delivery services – UberEats and DoorDash, and the good news is that they will pay for the delivery service in SHIB.
How to Pay With SHIB on DoorDash and UberEats
Although the food delivery companies do not directly accept Shiba Inu payments at the time of writing this line, BitPay noted in a recent blog post that SHIB holders can pay for services rendered by UberEats and DoorDash using three alternative methods.
Shiba Inu enthusiasts can choose to purchase food delivery services’ gift cards using the cryptocurrency via the BitPay app, as well as using the BitPay cryptocurrency card, which allows people to spend their digital currency like cash, thus paying for the food delivery service made by UberEats and DoorDash.
Furthermore, BitPay stated that Shiba Inu holders can also make payments to the food delivery companies using Takeaway.com or Menufy and can pay directly from their cryptocurrency accounts.
BitPay Fostering Crypto Payments
Interestingly, BitPay has been one of the frontliners promoting the widespread adoption of cryptocurrency payments. The company has partnered with other fiat and cryptocurrency payment providers to give cryptocurrency holders the convenience of making payments with the nascent asset class.
Earlier this week, BitPay announced that Shiba Inu holders can now purchase Apple products, including MacBooks and iPhones, from selected retailers like Newegg.
