KFC Canada Is Accepting Bitcoin For Fried Chicken

KFC Canada Is Accepting Bitcoin For Fried Chicken

The Bitcoin Bucket contains 10 chicken tenders, waffle fries, a medium side, gravy and two dips.

The fast food retailer is selling a bucket of fried chicken for $20 presented in a bitcoin-themed container.

The company wrote on Twitter that no matter what Bitcoin is and how it works, customers should get good chicken at any time.

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. But the chain points out that, in fact, KFC Canada itself is really not sure what bitcoins are.

This doesn't mean that you can just walk into KFC location in Canada and pay with crypto at the cash counter. According to the check-out process on KFC's website, Bitcoin Bucket will be delivered directly to the customer's address including shipping fee and taxes of $7.60, which makes it 27 Canadian dollars in total. KFC has now become the latest name to join the Bitcoin party, joining a number of eminent names who accept Bitcoin payments such as Microsoft, etc.

Moscow Calls Vancouver Meeting on Pyongyang 'Inappropriate Cold War Mindset'
He also said China and Russian Federation , which have not been invited, will be briefed on the discussions after the meeting. This ministerial will enhance and strengthen all of the efforts under way.

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.

The marketing wheeze is being played for laughs by the Colonel's social media minions, with a cable news-style feed on Facebook showing a live bitcoin price tracker and gags such as "trade your digital tender for chicken tenders" and "bitcoin is down, invest in buckets instead".

Others noted the cost of the bucket would come out to about $40 due to a $20 transaction fee.

While it's possible that the company truly believes in the potential of the currency, an option for users to spend Bitcoin at KFC is probably more of a marketing stunt than it is an act of embracing this fledgling form of payment.

In recent months the bitcoin network has become almost unusable for day-to-day commerce and small transactions. It has decreased by 1.22%, as compared to the previous day.
