This Bitcoin KFC Bucket Is An Abomination

The LTO is available in Canada and is making a good deal of news around cryptocurrency websites globally.

The promotion is also highlighted on Twitter, where KFC Canada alluded to Bitcoin's alleged founder, Satoshi Nakamoto, a pseudonym for one or several unknown individuals who launched the virtual currency.

This bucket will include 10 original recipe tenders, waffle fries, a medium side, a medium gravy and 2 dips - all for $20 (approximately R198).

The fast food retailer is selling a bucket of fried chicken for $20 presented in a bitcoin-themed container. "So, trade your Bitcoins for buckets and invest in something finger lickin' good".

You might take a look at this tweet from KFC Canada and think "they're taking the piss, right?" Inclusive of bitcoin transaction fees, which are averaging at around $5 on major blockchain wallet platforms like Blockchain and Trezor, the KFC bitcoin-themed fried chicken bucket costs over $30.

Despite some customer doubts, KFC Canada said Friday that the deal is real and that while the promotion was "temporarily sold out", people would again be able to pay with Bitcoin later on Friday.

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.

KFC considers other cryptocurrencies as well and mentions it on Twitter.

The limited-time marketing move sees the Canada-based chain advertising "The Bitcoin Bucket" complete with a Facebook-based live-tracker of the standing price for the product, which works out to roughly 20 Canadian dollars depending on the exchange rate with bitcoin.

Response to social media was controversy. It has decreased by 1.22%, as compared to the previous day.
