KFC Canada has started offering "The Bitcoin Bucket" which is a bucket full of fried chicken pieces cost around 27 Canadian dollars.
However, there are a few downsides to adopting this method of payment in the long run. "Bitcoin payments under $100 are quickly becoming impractical for users to send and for BitPay to process", the Bitcoin payment processor said in its blog. In addition, customers can still purchase the Bucket using fiat currency, if they want to avoid the rising transaction fees now regarding the Bitcoin payments.
As noted by The Cointelegraph, this is not the first time that a major player in the food industry has adopted the cryptocurrency.
Despite reportedly generating considerable interest (the offer was sold out when My Business visited the site), the company insists the move is a promotional one only and is being offered only within Canada.
