- KFC Canada published earlier today that they now accept Dogecoin as payment.
- The announcement was in response to a customer asking if he could pay with DOGE.
- Dogecoin reached a new all-time high of $0.69 today.
Rumors have emerged that Kentucky Fried Chicken Canada accepts Dogecoin, following a tweet from the company published earlier today. In other words, it seems that KFC has expanded payment options for its Canadian customers with the joke cryptocurrency Dogecoin.
Recently, KFC Canada published free delivery on orders over $35. To this, one customer responded, “Can I use my Dogecoin to buy this?”
KFC Canada replied, “We accept cash, card, and dogecoin.”
As a result, the tweet got approximately 2500 retweets, 500 retweets with comments, and 5800 likes. Quickly, the news spread on various sites. In response, KFC Canada deleted the original tweet, denying that it accepts Dogecoin.
In light of this, it is not clear whether the fast-food chain is truly accepting Dogecoin or any other crypto. Currently, the KFC website does not show an option to pay with Dogecoin. Instead, it only offers options to pay by credit card and Google Pay.
Back in January 2018, KFC Canada started dabbing in crypto. They also began promoting a “Bitcoin Bucket” that could be purchased with BTC via BitPay. However, this was only a temporary marketing gimmick.
In addition, Dogecoin’s merchant adoption has been making great strides. Mark Cuban’s Dallas Mavericks, electronics retailer Newegg, and internet service provider EasyDNS are among the latest big names that have embraced the meme token.
At the time of writing, Dogecoin reached a new all-time high of $0.69, according to CoinGecko.
