Canadian offshoot of the fast food chain Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) is currently accepting Bitcoin as a means of payment via BitPay. Unfortunately, the whole thing is much more complicated than it sounds. Pay at checkout with a cryptocurrency – that’s exactly how the payment process works .
Unfortunately, you can not just go to a branch in Canada to pay for the menu you want using Bitcoin at the counter. KFC’s offer has been limited to a single product, the Bitcoin Bucket, and will only be accepted for a short time. The bucket full of chips in waffle form with two sauces and chicken pieces can only be ordered online and can be delivered exclusively to your home. Including fees, taxes and delivery costs come together per bucket converted around 22.76 euros . Five dollars will be charged by the provider only for the novel payment option.
For this, the person behind the pseudonym Satoshi has been promised a court of law free of charge if she reveals her identity to the company. KFC Canada currently sells exclusively through Bitcoin. It was announced that it would be considered at the moment to accept other cryptocurrencies as a mean of payment in the future .
Even if the action is actually just a joke, it is so well received in the social networks. So far over 166,000 Bitcoin fans wanted to see this posting on Facebook . On Twitter initial tweet recieved over 5,500 likes in the past 18 hours, and has been redistributed 3,500 times. Maybe it was because it was admitted in the announcement that the subject of Bitcoin actually has no idea at all. What the heck, for the preparation of the chicken bucket, this knowledge is not even necessary. Accordingly, some comments were critical. The thing with the #BitcoinBucket was probably not much more than a successful marketing campaign, was criticized on Facebook. Others jokingly suggested renaming the fast food chain better in Kentucky Fried Cryptocurrency (instead of Chicken).
