After the most recent cryptocurrency scandal involving a famous website and South Korea’s ban on cryptocurrency, everything seems to be getting back to normal. KFC Canada has posted on Twitter that Colonel Sanders is not accepting Bitcoin for their buckets.
Chicken and digital coin: a fiery combination
On Friday, the official announcement was posted by Kentucky Fried Chicken Canada via Twitter that customers can pay in Bitcoin. The Bucket is named the Bitcoin Bucket and the price of the licking-finger chicken is of $20 (CAD). The Bitcoin Bucket comes with 10 tenders, medium waffle fries, gravy and two dips. The post was accompanied by the message: “Welcome to 2018 Canada”.
The reactions were immediate
KFC Canada set up a Facebook Live feed and the world reacted. The video played for four hours and hundreds of comments arrived soon enough. Many asked KFC to start accepting altcoins as well. A Twitter user replied that some use XRP.
Charlie Lee, Litecoin’s creator, also wrote on Twitter that Litecoin would be a better choice rather than Bitcoin.
How to get the Bitcoin Bucket from KFC Canada
Those who want to try using Bitcoins for a chicken bucket have to use KFC’s online portal due to the long transfer times Bitcoin has. The option will be only for a limited amount of time and once a customer orders, they will receive their order at home.
