It has partnered with 5,062 restaurants, ranging from pizza, sushi, kebab, dumplings and other dishes, all of which offer delivery.

In 2014, Pyszne.pl was acquired by Takeaway.com, one of the largest online food ordering websites in the world. Headquartered in Amsterdam, Takeaway.com is active in 10 countries, has 28,800 restaurants, and 8.9 million active customers. Pyszne.pl is Takeaway.com’s fastest growing brand and the only one in Poland. In 2016, it grew 150% annually in terms of gross merchandise volume. Takeaway.com wrote:

Poland [Pyszne.pl] continues to be our fastest-growing market delivering another year of triple-digit order growth…we have achieved twelve times order growth in Poland and cemented ourselves as the clear number one in a fast-growing market. Our brand is multiple times larger than the number two based on orders.

In addition, the company detailed, “Poland is also home to our fourth largest office,” which is located in Warsaw. “Our Polish business became our third largest market in 2016.”

Pay with Bitcoin

Pyszne.pl recently announced that it has started accepting bitcoin through Bitpay, beginning this month. In addition to bitcoin, customers have other options to pay such as with a credit card, online transfer, Sofort, and Paypal. Users of Pyszne.pl mobile application can also use Android Pay.

However, the company noted that users must have their own bitcoin wallets to use the option. In comparison, there is a 6% fee for using credit cards or Paypal, and €1 for using Banconnect/Mister Cash. “These costs cover the costs that all banks charge for online payments,” the company’s website states, adding that for these options “there are also costs due to the processing of the payment.”

If an order is canceled before it is processed and payment was made using bitcoin, refunds will only be issued if an IBAN bank account number is provided. “If you paid for your order using bitcoin and the order is canceled, the refund is paid back to you in euros as your original bitcoin payment was converted into euros, ” the company explained.

Bitpay Has Catered to the Windows Phone Market Since 2015 in the Form of Copay Wallet

Leading bitcoin payment processor Bitpay has announced the development of their bitcoin wallet app for Windows Phone users. With Windows accounting for less than 1% of the total smartphone market share, the array of mobile cryptocurrency applications available to Windows smartphone users has been very limited, as many developers have opted to focus their attention on the Apple and Android smartphone markets.

Bitpay to Launch Bitcoin Wallet App for Windows Phone Market

Although Bitpay has catered to the Windows phone market since 2015 in the form of the Copay wallet, Bitpay is excited to integrate Visa debit and other functions not currently available via Copay into its Windows products.

Bitpay and Microsoft have partnered previously. In 2014, Bitpay partnered with Microsoft to allow customers to make purchases using bitcoin in the Windows store. When announcing Bitpay’s plans to offer its full wallet services to Windows Phone users, the company stated that “Microsoft’s continued commitment to blockchain technology and interest in smart contracts makes our bitcoin wallet platform – the foundation of many exciting smart contract projects – a powerful addition to the Windows Phone app ecosystem”, suggesting the likelihood of future partnerships between the companies.

Bitcoin-Adopting Windows Phone Users Are Welcoming the Collaboration

Many within the bitcoin community do not share Bitpay’s enthusiasm for Microsoft’s explorations into cryptocurrency technology. The recently announced global public-private partnership ID2020 illustrates Microsoft, Accenture and Avanade’s willingness to leverage the blockchain for the purposes of centralization.

The project plans to leverage Accenture’s Unique Identity Service Platform to manage sensitive data such as fingerprints, iris recognition, and biometric data via the blockchain. Although the project is ostensively designed to better assist in the management of refugees and displaced peoples, many within the cryptocurrency community are concerned that said technology could be utilized for more Orwellian purposes.

Despite reservation from some within the bitcoin economy regarding Microsoft’s involvement in the ID2020 project, bitcoin adopting Windows Phone users are welcoming the collaboration.
