With the increasing interest in crypto by individuals and companies around the world, it’s no surprise that large multinational corporations have adopted and encouraged the revolutionary payment method. However, it’s not only tech giants and software firms that are leading the way. Crypto has a place for burgers and fries too, believe it or not.
Some of the world’s best loved fast food chains have also opted to incorporate crypto payments.
Let’s take a deeper look.
Fast food giant McDonald’s has begun accepting cryptocurrencies, specifically Bitcoin, as a form of payment in El Salvador following an announcement that the country would be the first to adopt the cryptocurrency as legal tender. Bitcoin can now be used to pay at all nineteen locations in El Salvador, as well as online via the delivery app.
Local news in Venezuela recently reported that Burger King outlets in the country have partnered with CryptoBuyer to accept cryptocurrencies as a valid mode of payment for food and beverage orders in store. Customers also have a lot of choice, with the option to pay via Bitcoin, Dash, Litecoin, Ethereum and Tether.
KFC franchises in Canada ran a promotion which encouraged customers to pay via Bitcoin in exchange for the ‘Bitcoin Bucket’. KFC Canada processed payments via Bitpay and the bucket would subsequently be delivered to their home.
A number of Subway branches around the world accept Bitcoin as a valid payment method for their legendary sandwiches. A customer even paid for his order with crypto at a Subway branch dating as far back to 2013.
Heading back over to Venezuela now; November 2020 saw the introduction of crypto payments for Pizza Hut. As one of the world’s largest pizza chains, this is an interesting and exciting move which may well have a ripple effect for further Pizza Hut franchises across the globe.
As a result of a partnership with Cryptobuyer, Pizza Hut now accepts crypto payments in a range of currencies: Bitcoin (BTC), Dash (DASH), Litecoin (LTC), Ether (ETH), Binance coin (BNB), Tether (USDT), Binance USD (BUSD), Dai (DAI), and XTP, Cryptobuyer’s native token.
