According to the new development, German Burger Kings will accept BTC payments via its delivery website and mobile application.

Crypto community members first pointed out that Burger King’s official German website and mobile application had quietly added bitcoin as an accepted payment option.

However, it’s unclear whether the fast-food chain is planning to roll out the feature for its physical locations, which total over 600 stores across the country. Burger King could follow on the heels of Brazilian payment processor Cielo in integrating BTC payments for point-of-sale machines through the use of a QR code. 

Burger King has yet to comment on the most recent development, but this is not the first time the fast-food chain has been associated with bitcoin.

In 2017 the Russian version of Burger King announced that it would accept BTC for payments, and issued the somewhat tongue-in-cheek Whoppercoin virtual currency to commemorate the event. Bitcoin was also previously accepted by BK locations in Arnhem, the Netherlands.
