Enjoying “finger lickin’ good” fried chicken has just become a whole lot easier for Bitcoiners—at least in Canada. Yesterday, KFC Canada began offering the first of its kind “Bitcoin bucket”—a bucket of fried chicken that can be purchased with Bitcoins.
With this, the fast food giant becomes one of the first international food vendors to accept payments in a cryptocurrency.
The good news is that this initiative is only a test run to check the viability of this payment method. When asked if KFC Canada would be accepting Litecoin, the fast food chain did not reject the idea and instead gave us hope, saying they’ll be adding “one cryptocurrency at a time.”
Today, accepting Bitcoin has become a lot easier for merchants. Services like “BitPay” and “BTCPay” have made Bitcoin integration and payment processing very seamless.
While BitPay does not yet accept any other cryptos at this point, BTCPay added support for Litecoin just a week ago.
