Are you Canadian, hungry, and do you have Bitcoins to spend? Well, now you can get a finger-licking good meal for only $20 CAD worth of your Bitcoin. Let’s all welcome the KFC Bitcoin.
Cryptocurrency Enters the Fast Food World
KFC has been around for years, but it was not always this big. It started off as a local eatery in Kentucky and later spread across the U.S. Today, KFC is a global brand that has a customer base of millions of people. It has also recently made one more big development – accepting Bitcoin.
KFC Canada presents The #Bitcoin Bucket. 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. https://t.co/2OKuCHk5Hb pic.twitter.com/UwaduB8toi

A Big, Finger-Licking Good Meal
As you may imagine, $20 worth of Bitcoin will get you a pretty sizeable and tasty KFC meal. If you have Bitcoin to spend, then you can expect:
- 10 original recipe kitchen tenders
- Waffle fries
- Medium side
- Two dipping sauces
It also comes with great service from the diligent KFC staff. However, it also takes some luck as these meals have sold out – or are selling out. However, KFC will certainly be processing more orders as the meal becomes increasingly popular. You can also expect to see the KFC Bitcoin meal in the U.S., Europe, and even worldwide, considering that it has the potential for huge success.
Tweets to Go With the Meal
KFC Canada’s Bitcoin project has been very successful so far considering – in fact, they cannot fill orders fast enough. It is also brilliant considering the tweets that have followed the campaign.
One particular tweet hit out at people who doubt that Bitcoin is real. It reads, “Got Bitcoins, Canada? Invest in KFC chicken instead. The Bitcoin bucket is real and its here.” Other similarly funny and clever tweets are:
- Avoid bucket FOMO. Invest now!
- Sure, we don’t know exactly what Bitcoins are, or how they work, but that shouldn’t come between you and some finger licking good chicken.
- Bitcoin Bucket is currently sold out. There will be a restock tonight. We are mining for more as fast as we can.
- That’s 0.000662 herbs and prices in Bitcoin.
- The latest, and likely first, venture into the crypto-chicken space.
A Growing Trend
The tweet about the Bitcoin bucket being the first in the crypto chicken market is certainly true as KFC is the first parent company to adopt the use of cryptocurrencies. However, they have been in use in the fast food industry for some time now.
Burger King Arnhem has been accepting Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies for some time now. Additionally, many food companies are developing their very own cryptocurrencies that they plan to use to expand loyalty programs. Certainly, cryptocurrencies are expected to become common in the food industry and many others, considering their growing popularity.
