Bitcoiners in the past few days have witnessed mainstream media spreading rumors about South Korea’s ban on cryptocurrency. This, as always, caused some panic selling. But hey, don’t be upset. Colonel Sanders is here to spread some fried chicken joy amid the crypto bloodbath. KFC Canada tweeted today they are accepting Bitcoin for the finger lickin’ chicken.

Bitcoin Backed by Fired Chicken

Kentucky Fried Chicken Canada tweeted this Friday that customers now can pay for a bucket of the Colonel’s Original Recipe in bitcoin. Renamed the “Bitcoin Bucket”, the Canadian outlet has priced the chicken at 20 Canadian Dollars ($16), and that includes 10 original recipe tenders, waffle fries, a medium side, gravy and two dips.

The Canadian outlet posted on its website “Welcome to 2018, Canada.”

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.

Showing awareness of bitcoin’s volatility, the company has set up a Facebook Live feed, displaying the number of bitcoins needed to pay for the meal. The video played for four hours.

“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.”

How About Alt-recipes?

The post has a lot of comments suggesting KFC should accept altcoins over bitcoin.“Use XRP, ” wrote a Twitter user. “You should accept verge currency, much faster than BTC, ” wrote another.

Litecoin Creator Charlie Lee retweeted the post saying Litecoin would be a better option for KFC.

Still, many Twitter users are excited to see the fast food chain accepting bitcoin, with some customers buying only to have a bite of the crypto chicken.

Aware of Bitcoin’s long transfer times, the bitcoin bucket will be trading for a limited time, and only be available to be purchased through KFC Canada’s online portal. Once purchased, customers will have their bucket delivered to their home.
