Thousands of Aussie restaurants will soon accept Bitcoin Cash


Almost half a million Liven App users will soon be able to buy lunch and dinner at thousands of restaurants across Australia using Bitcoin Cash.

Liven is a popular app that provides diners with special offers along with digital tokens as ‘cash back’ style rewards that can be spent at other restaurants in the network.

Gelato Messina, 8Bit Burger, MoVida, Maha, Din Tai Fung, Gazi and Jimmy Grants are just a few of the well-known establishments in the Liven network who’ll soon be accepting Bitcoin Cash and the Liven (LVN) token, along with standard credit card payments, through the app.’s Roger Ver – who became an official Liven advisor back in January tweeted the announcement earlier this afternoon.

“#BitcoinCash is about to become spendable at 1000s of real world restaurants across #Australia thanks to @livenpay who chose #BCH due to its massive user base and ease of use!

#LVN is listing today on and soon.”

Liven is unique

Unlike most rewards programs, you can earn LVN at one venue and spend it at thousands of others.

The company was founded in 2014 by William and Grace Wong alongside university friend David Ballerini.

It received venture capital funding in 2017.

Earlier this year it transformed its ICO into an ongoing “token sale“.

Ver praises Liven for helping spread adoption

“The future of cryptocurrencies depends on practical applications for real people and Liven is a prime example of this,” said Ver when he came on board as an advisor.

“I am excited by this opportunity to grow with them and demonstrate the power of cryptocurrencies to the wider world.”
