Buy the dip or the often-used acronym BTFD encourages investors to buy an asset while the price slumps down. The expectation is of course that the price is going to recover in a short time. Therefore, a dip is not a change in trend but rather a short-term correction during a bull market. It seems that in the US Chipotle took this expression literally and wants us all to buy the dip.
What has the restaurant to offer and how is it going to combine Mexican food with crypto?
Chipotle accepts 98 different cryptocurrencies in its restaurants, including Bitcoin, Ethereum, Solana, and Dogecoin. This is not the first contact with crypto since the company launched a program called “Burritos or Bitcoin” to celebrate the national Burrito day. The payment option is available because of a partnership between Chipotle and Flexa. Only customers who are using a Flexa-enabled app can pay for their food with crypto.
According to a press release Chipotle would like to connect with the Web3 community and empower fans to buy the dip. And while the company won’t provide financial advice on the current state of the market, it offers a variety of delicious dips and a game that is open to qualified US citizens.
US customers can visit chipotlebuythedip.xyz and win either a dip or crypto with a total value of $200.000.
Some analysts believe that Bitcoin reached a point that could be described as the sweet spot. Others are warning that this is not the bottom and that the global economy could face a recession and possibly stagflation.
The marketing campaign of Chipotle isn’t necessarily an indicator of whether one should buy crypto or not. It is a clear statement that crypto is going to stay no matter how prices will develop and that affiliation with crypto and Web3 is something that is viewed as positive.
This stance isn’t obvious since critics are all over the environmental impact of mining. In other cases, companies with a strong product seem to reject the idea of Web3. Only recently Minecraft has made clear that they won’t tolerate tokenization of in-game content and have no plans for NFTs. This shows that the opinion about crypto and what it is going to become in the future is still up for debate.

Avalanche has had an impressive performance during the last bull market and it is competing as a high-speed blockchain against Ethereum, Polygon, and Solana. This highly competitive environment demands that Avalanche needs to push on all fronts to keep its market share and provide everything that is needed to become a metaverse power hub. Partnerships are usually the most important effort when it comes down to evolving the ecosystem of a blockchain.

Web3 is a term that describes a bunch of technologies that are supposed to decentralize the internet and software. Blockchain technology in particular plays a huge role in this field. For instance, non-fungible tokens allow users to own and transfer the digital content that they enjoy. More use cases are lining up and more companies are interested in building blockchains or applications for already existing blockchains like Solana, Aptos, Ethereum, or Avalanche.

Solana had its fair share of problems since its blockchain suffered from outages several times. Not exactly the publicity that is helpful to convince more users to adopt its technology and explore all the options that it offers. The good news is that the team around Solana is continuously developing all the tools that are needed to push its technology to the next level. One of these many attempts to achieve something big and unique is the Solana Saga.

Chiliz is the native token that powers the Socios platform and during the FIFA World Cup 2022, the hype around the concept peaked. This year it became more silent around Chiliz since investors' expectations weren’t at the same level as they were during the event. Good things in crypto are often born in times when the market becomes quiet and builders are just focusing on their job. Last month Chiliz launched its mainnet successfully and is making plans for the future.
