If you're sitting on some bitcoin and are feeling hungry, why not order some fried chicken?
Fast food chicken franchise KFC will now allows customers in Canada to pay for a bucket meal using Bitcoin.
"A lot of you want to buy in Bitcoin, which means we keep selling out".
The crispy meal is priced at CA$20 (£12, $16) which now amounts to about BTC 0.001181 and includes 10 Original Recipe chicken tenders, waffle fries, a medium side, gravy and two dips.
A limited-time marketing promotion for a "Bitcoin Bucket" was launched Thursday afternoon by the quick-serve restaurant chain - so limited, in fact, that it appeared to sell out of the ten-piece chicken buckets entirely between 10 a.m. and 11 a.m. ET on Friday.
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.
KFC Canada says its "Bitcoin Bucket" deal is real.
The world-famous fastfood chain has announced that for a limited time only, it will be happy to accept the cryptocurrency in exchange for its items.
This presents a bit of an issue to customers because BitPay's minimum transaction limit was raised to $100 in the latter half of last month.
KFC Canada's page for the promotion helpfully includes live updates of that sum in Bitcoin.
In September past year, Pick n Pay successfully tested Bitcoin purchases, allowing customers to pay for groceries using Bitcoin. "If Satoshi reveals his true identity, his bucket is on us", KFC said.
