KFC Canada, world-known Fast-food chain, presented "The Bitcoin Bucket" on January 11.

For the equivalent of C$20 in bitcoin — currently 0.0011204 in the cryptocurrency — customers can purchase the “Bitcoin Bucket”, which includes 10 chicken tenders, waffle fries, a medium side, medium gravy and two dips.

The limited-time Bitcoin Bucket can only be purchased from the KFC Canada website for home delivery.

Welcome to 2018, Canada. Despite the ups and downs of bitcoin, the Colonel's Original Recipe is as good as always. So, trade your bitcoins for buckets and invest in something finger lickin' good.

The rollout was accompanied by a Facebook live video featuring bitcoin prices and bitcoin-themed jokes.

Bitcoin is down. Invest in buckets instead; Invest in Original Recipe. Avoid alt-recipes; Hodl a bucket of chicken instead; It's the $20 bucket, but more futuristic and a little confusing; Buy the dip. Honey Mustard is a personal favourite.

KFC's payment processor is Bitpay, which last month was forced to temporarily raise its minimum invoice amount to $100 due to “current bitcoin network conditions”.

The security tokens platform tZERO announced plans to launch a mobile application for buying and selling bitcoin. In the future, the application may also begin to support Ethereum,  CoinDesk reports.

According to Saum Noursalehi, CEO of tZERO, applications for iOS and Android devices should be launched in June. Bitsy is developing it, a cryptocurrency start-up that is part of the portfolio of the Overstock venture division of Medici Ventures.

That’s part of the reason we acquired Bitsy — to accelerate time to market for our mobile app. They have an app for trading crypto, primarily bitcoin, in a beta-phase, they built a wallet and key recovery mechanism, and this will be the foundation of the mobile app for tZERO. They are also working on some cool stuff like biometric login.

CEO, tZero

According to him, the application will allow you to store cryptocurrency without the need to trust third parties and it will be connected to the network of exchanges through the API. The implementation of this plan will occur through partner tZERO, the institutional trading platform SFox.

In the future, the head of tZERO added, the platform also intends to create its own cryptocurrency vault to meet the demand from users.

The public beta testing of Bitsy wallet started in November 2018. With his help, the Overstock retailer plans to launch Bitcoin sales on its website.
