KFC Canada Is Accepting Bitcoin For Fried Chicken

The post KFC Canada Has Started to Accept Bitcoin For Cryptocurrency-Themed Fried Chicken appeared first on NewsBTC.

One user wrote on Twitter: "Goin' to grab a bucket just because of this", another one asked why not to use something less volatile than Bitcoin, somebody else wrote: "Why would anyone want to pay $40 for $20 worth of chicken?"

"Sure, we don't know exactly what Bitcoins are, or how they work, but that shouldn't come between you and some finger lickin' good chicken", the company said in a tweet.

KFC Canada says its "Bitcoin Bucket" deal is real. For those wondering what KFC Canada has in their Bitcoin Bucket, the website specifies it: Those ordering the $20 Bitcoin Bucket will get 10 Original Recipe Tenders, Waffle Fries, Med Side, Med Gravy and 2 Dips.

The LTO is available in Canada and is making a good deal of news around cryptocurrency websites globally. Those requesting delivery will have a have a special bitcoin-themed bucket with the bitcoin value embedded onto the container.

Oh, you Canadians, always up to something a little off the wall, and this week has certainly been no exception on your KFC Canada Twitter page. Instead, it is bought online using Bitpay as one of the payment options and the bucket will then be delivered to the customer's address (though a $5 shipping fee will be charged). But, in the future, the integration of second-layer solutions could allow restaurants to enable bitcoin payments, if transaction fees can drop below $1.

Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC), the beloved US-based fried chicken chain, has started to accept bitcoin from its customers.

While the move is appreciated, such a step will most likely not percolate across the globe at KFC outlets and neither will it be replicated by other major such fast food retailers.

But this Canadian social media LTO promotion was aimed squarely at marketing the chain, rather than making money directly from bitcoin transactions.

According to the data from CoinMarketCap, now Bitcoin price makes up $13637.
