The prominence of Bitcoin is rising all around the world. Now, the German clients of Burguer King will finally be able to accept Bitcoin (BTC) payments. Initially, the payments will only be accepted on the mobile app and on deliveries, though, so don’t expect to be able to personally buy a burger and pay using Bitcoin just yet.
This is mostly because the BTC payment was only spotted on a specific site, which means that it may not really be a whole chain-wide decision. Burger King has over 600 restaurants in Germany, so it would be a huge improvement to finally accept it, but it does not seem that this is happening right now.
In the near future, however, it can definitely happen if this little experiment is successful and people actually go forward and use BTC to buy food.
This Is Not The First Time That Burger King and Bitcoin Are Together
Back in 2017, Burger King Russia started to accept BTC payments and created its own Whoppercoin token. The Netherlands also had some restaurants of the chain accepting the token.
These are all small steps, however. Burger King currently has over 13,000 restaurants around the whole world and it serves around 11 million people every day. These may be small improvements, but as soon as one of these countries get really successful in accepting these payments, it will only be a matter of time before all these restaurants also start. Then, Bitcoin will be really mainstream.
