The biggest name in fried chicken has launched a cryptocurrency-themed “Bitcoin Bucket,” and yes, you can pay for it using the flagship cryptocurrency.
KFC Canada Launches ‘Bitcoin Bucket’
KFC Canada began the publicity stunt on Thursday, advertising the Bitcoin Bucket on social media and livestreaming its price in bitcoin, which constantly fluctuates based on the exchange rate of $20 CAD, the product’s fiat price.
Unfortunately, the Bitcoin Bucket is not available at your local restaurant, but customers lucky enough to live within one of KFC’s Canadian delivery zones can schedule evening deliveries through Jan. 19 at 8 pm EST.
“Apologies, rest of the world,” the product description reads.
For the few customers who are interested in what is actually in the bucket, it includes 10 original recipe tenders, waffle fries, a medium side, medium gravy, and two dips.
The company is partnering with BitPay to accept bitcoin payments for the meal, but Luddites can still complete the purchase using fiat currency to avoid the rising transaction fees now associated with bitcoin payments. However, the company is purportedly considering updating the promotion to include altcoin payments.
