Burger King Starts Accepting Bitcoins in Germany

Two weeks ago, the German website of the global fast-food chain Burger King has added a bitcoin logo to their lineup of accepted modes of payment on their website and in their app. This means the German arm of Burger King, the world’s second-largest restaurant chain, now accepts bitcoin for online orders through its website and mobile application.

Nothing is said about the possibility of using cryptocurrency directly in restaurants, of which there are more than 600 in Germany. Burger King was founded in 1954 and is headquartered in Florida. The chain has estimated annual revenues of $1.7 billion.

Hamburgers, French fries, and fried chicken — despite being unhealthy food — made Burger King the world’s second-largest restaurant chain, behind only McDonald’s. When giant popular companies like Burger King, which has more than 13,000 locations in 98 countries worldwide and serves over 11 million customers per year, start accepting bitcoin, we know cryptocurrency is on the way to becoming mainstream.

Once bitcoin is accepted on a large scale, it could bring hundreds of millions of users to the cryptocurrency market.

In summer 2017, Burger King Russia announced it will start accepting Bitcoin payments. A few weeks later, Burger King Russia released its own cryptocurrency, Whoppercoin, which is based on the Waves platform.

More and more giant businesses are entering the cryptocurrency market with Facebook and Walmart making the big news recently. With its recent move, Burger King is simply following the suit of other multi-million corporations.

These are the signs that cryptocurrencies are making their way into our daily consumption and business.
