Kentucky Fried Bitcoin… well almost!

Back in August we reported on how Burger King in Russia had launched a cryptocurrency in order to reward customers purchasing it’s ‘Whopper’ burger.
Now KFC is joining the Cryptocurrency revolution with the announcement that they are – for a limited time – accepting Bitcoin for a special bucket of chicken dubbed ‘The Bitcoin Bucket’.

An online exclusive, ‘The Bitcoin Bucket’ uses BitPay in order to accept payments and convert between Canadian Dollars and Bitcoin. The price of the Bucket is the equivalent of  $20 CAD in Bitcoin at the time.

The bucket will only be available for a limited time and appears to be a publicity stunt, although could be KFC testing the demand and feasibility of cryptocurrencies for making payments in the future.

Have you purchased a Bitcoin Bucket? How does it taste? Let us know below 😉
