Bitcoiners in the past few days has seen mainstream media spreading rumors about South Korea’s ban on cryptocurrency. This, as always, made some panic selling. But we don’t have to be upset. Colonel Sanders is here to spread some fried chicken joy between the crypto market. KFC Canada tweeted today they are accepting Bitcoin for their finger-lickin good’ chicken.

KFC Canada Launches ‘Bitcoin Bucket’

KFC Canada started the publicity, through advertising the Bitcoin Bucket on social media and live streaming its price in bitcoin, which constantly varies based on the exchange rate of $20 CAD, the product’s fiat price.

Actually, the Bitcoin Bucket is not available everywhere, but the customers who live within one of KFC’s Canadian delivery zones can schedule evening deliveries through Jan. 19 at 8 pm EST.

KFC Apologizes:

“Apologies, rest of the world.”

For the few customers who are interested in what is actually in the bucket, it includes 10 original recipe tenders, waffle fries, a medium size, medium gravy, and two dips.

The company has collaborated with BitPay to accept bitcoin payments for the meal, but Luddites can still complete the purchase using fiat currency to avoid the rising transaction fees now associated with bitcoin payments. Despite, the company is purportedly considering updating the promotion to include altcoin payments.

‘Avoid Bucket FOMO’

KFC’s corporate Twitter account is known for its hilarious jokes — the company sent a custom portrait to the first person who discovered why the account only followed the Spice Girls and six people named Herb — and KFC Canada lived up to this reputation in its tweets promoting the product.

In order to warn the customers to stay away from alt-recipes, the company advised customers to “Avoid Bucket FOMO” and buy the dip (they offer five different kinds).

The company has even created a plan to discover the true identity of Satoshi Nakamoto, bitcoin’s anonymous creator without whom the Bitcoin Bucket would never have become a reality.
