KFC Canada Is Accepting Bitcoin For Fried Chicken

"Despite the ups and downs of Bitcoin, the Colonel's Original Recipe is as good as always". Sure, we don't know exactly what Bitcoins are, or how they work, but that shouldn't come between you and some finger lickin' good chicken.

"If you happen to be in Canada, you can now order finger lickin" good food by paying in Bitcoins! Currently, transferring Bitcoin is prohibitively expensive, and using your Bitcoin at KFC may turn a $20 purchase into $50 with current fees.

Instead, the company is accepting Bitcoin via BitPay as one of the options through an online check-out page. The fast-food chain is now accepting the cryptocurrency for a limited time for customers to buy a Bitcoin-themed chicken bucket called the "Bitcoin Bucket".

In case you're wondering how you can walk into a Canadian KFC location and purchase the Bitcoin Bucket, well, you can't, at least physically.

"Welcome to 2018, Canada", the KFC Canada website reads.

The Bitcoin Bucket deal is now only available on the Canadian website, but if you're interested in using some of your hard-earned currency on a tasty meal, you can trade $20 CAD worth of bitcoin at KFC for a bucket of chicken.

Also the company points out that the trading time of the Bitcoin Bucket is limited.
