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”.

Bitcoin Questions included into Dutch High School Exam

Bitcoin-themed mathematics questions have been cut-in in recent high school matriculation exams in the Netherlands

About 200,000 Dutch students are to have taken the OVW exam, a obligatory test for students who wish to get tertiary education in the Netherlands. The testing list  included five bitcoin-themed questions.

Students were offered to solve five different mathematical problems. The questions asked that students “calculate in what year the amount of bitcoin exceeded 18 million,” “calculate from which year on the reward will be less than one bitcoin,” “determine the maximal amount of bitcoin that can be in circulation.” The resolution  of the issues was supposed to base on the formula used to employed to solve the questions.

Such kind of changes in testing for students is connected with the growing  recognition of cryptocurrency by the Holland’s institutions. In March, the Court of Amsterdam defined that bitcoin owns “properties of wealth” at the same time  adjudicating a civil rights occasion between an individual seeking repayment from an unfulfilled contract pertaining to bitcoin mining. The court ordered that “bitcoin represents a value and is transferable” and “thus shows characteristics of a property right. A claim for payment in Bitcoin is, therefore, to be regarded as a claim that qualifies for verification.”

Recently, Rob van Gijzel, the ambassador of the Dutch Blockchain Coalition, revealed a national blockchain research agenda, which had been accredited by the Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate Policy. The ministry had established a designated committee, TopTeam ICT, appointed to analyze the potential legal, economic, and ethical implications of distributed ledger technology in the country.
