Global fast-food chain – Burger King has begun accepting Bitcoin (BTC) payments for online food orders in Germany.
The new BTC payment option is visible alongside other payment options including PayPal and Visa card on the restaurant’s website; as well as integrated on the Burger King Germany mobile application.
Burger King is known to offer special snacks, chicken, desserts and other foods in its over ten thousand outlets across 98 countries; with Germany playing host to over 600 outlets.
This growing incorporation of cryptocurrrency/bitcoin payments for online platforms is championed by a growing need for speed and efficient payment systems in the rapidly involving sales world. At this time, the restaurant looks to offer rapid, scalable mobile and instant payments to its 11 million daily customers.
It will be recalled that in 2017, Burger King Russia had incorporated cryptocurrency payment; first accepting Bitcoin and going ahead to introduce the restaurant’s own virtual currency called WhopperCoin.
In 2018, the fast food franchise announced plans to expand to Africa, notably Nigeria and South Africa.
