Have a hankering for fried chicken but all out of cash? If you’re a Bitcoin investor, it’s your lucky day.
Cryptocurrency isn’t one of KFC’s 11 herbs and spices, so the company admits it’s not too versed about it. “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,” KFC Canada tweeted.
Thus, instead of dabbling in inventing its own version of the digital asset like Kodak and Burger King did, it’s launched a deal bucket that can be bought in virtual coins.
The limited edition ‘The Bitcoin Bucket’ costs the Bitcoin equivalent of CA$20 (US$16.05). Each order includes 10 chicken tenders, waffle fries, a medium-sized side, a medium-sized serving of gravy and two dips.
“Despite the ups and downs of Bitcoin, the Colonel’s Original Recipe is as good as always. So, trade your Bitcoins for buckets and invest in something finger lickin’ good.”
Keen to uncover the identity of Bitcoin founder Satoshi, the restaurant even offered to send him a bucket on the house.
If Satoshi reveals his true identity, his bucket is on us. #BitcoinBucket— KFC Canada (@kfc_canada) January 11, 2018
The only cryptocurrency KFC currently accepts is the Bitcoin, but it teases that “other crypto coins are in consideration.”
