KFC Canada briefly accepts Bitcoin as payment for $20 bucket meals

Share

KFC Canada introduced a "Bitcoin Bucket", a new menu item that customers can buy exclusively with cryptocurrency bitcoin (BTC).

Many commenters on the Facebook post appeared to regard the promotion as a joke.

"Despite the ups and downs of Bitcoin, the Colonel's Original Recipe is as good as always".

The meal bucket includes 10 chicken tenders, waffle fries, a medium side dish, gravy and two dipping sauces.

The limited-time marketing move sees the Canada-based chain advertising "The Bitcoin Bucket" complete with a Facebook-based live-tracker of the standing price for the product, which works out to roughly 20 Canadian dollars depending on the exchange rate with bitcoin.

However, the Bitcoin Bucket will not be available at your local restaurant.

Number of flu sufferers continues rising in Canada

"We can only accept purchases within Canada".

"While it is unusual and quirky, it is a legitimate way to purchase KFC", said a company spokesman, adding the chain had already received a number orders that will be fulfilled this evening. Every day, the list of the products and services that accept cryptocurrencies a mean of payment is increasing, indicating the growth of the cryptos' universal adoption.

"With current Bitcoin network conditions, transactions sent without large miner fees are at high risk of significant payment delays or payment failures".

Motherboard's Jordan Pearson wrote that whilst KFC's decision to adopt Bitcoin as a payment method "might seem surprising", the company "has been looking for ways to flip buzzy tech into a viral hit recently", such as training employees with a virtual reality game.

As noted by The Cointelegraph, this is not the first time that a major player in the food industry has adopted the cryptocurrency.

The company reportedly will even deliver it to buyers.
