We make news: hamburger for bitcoin. I’m Lovin’ It
McDonald’s now accepts bitcoins but only in El Salvador.
It is impossible to ignore this news! El Salvador, which recognized bitcoin as an official means of payment, gave citizens the opportunity, which did not exist before – to pay for McFlury with bitcoin! Now, visitors to McDonald’s, which have about 30 branches in El Salvador, can receive a QR code directing them to an invoice page on the Lightning Network. A few clicks, and voila, your hamburger is yours!
As a reminder, Lightning is a second-tier payment protocol designed to increase the scalability of BTC transactions. His help to the country will prove invaluable if El Salvador hopes to achieve a massive introduction of payments in bitcoins, and judging by the fact that against the background of yesterday’s fall in bitcoin, the president of the country bought another 150 bitcoins, everything is heading towards that. Well, we like the idea of going to our favorite fast food for a crypt. It would even be interesting to see the prices on the menu now. And you? Share with us in the comments!
