Last week KFC Canada briefly accepted Bitcoin as payment for $20 bucket meals – demand was exceptional!

Add KFC Canada to the list of companies that is looking to capitalize on the frenzied interest in cryptocurrencies
KFC Canada, the fast-food retailer, offered to accept Bitcoins as payment for a $20 meal in a bucket last Thursday, only for a limited time. For a paltry 0.001156 bitcoin you got fried chicken - and sides.  Sound good? Well, the thought of using your bitcoin right now to buy chicken is moot - since the Bitcoin Bucket sold out on KFC's website in less than 30 minutes last Friday.

The Bitcoin Bucket, which included 10 tenders, waffle fries, a side, some gravy and a pair of dips, costed the going rate of the cryptocurrency at the time of the purchase (depending also on the exchange rate of $20 Canadian). That was the equivalent of about 0.001167 bitcoin at the time, but by the time your read this - $20 Canadian in bitcoin is likely to have swung wildly (up or down). Given bitcoin's meteoric rise and fall, however, buying chicken with that fraction of currency now could mean forfeiting value if the cryptocurrency's value skyrockets higher.
KFC says it plans to offer more bitcoin promotions, although it should be pointed out that fees associated with bitcoin transactions could double the price of the meal for some people.

Motherboard pointed out it might not be the wisest idea to blow your Bitcoin stash on fast food:
  • In 2010, Laszlo Hanyecz spent 10,000 Bitcoin to buy two Papa John’s pizzas. That poor chap’s stash would be worth around $143 million today.  “It wasn’t like Bitcoins had any value back then, so the idea of trading them for a pizza was incredibly cool,”  he told the New York Times in 2013. “No one knew it was going to get so big.”

The cryptocurrency is already accepted by a range of major companies including Microsoft, Expedia.com, Overstock.com, as well as at a number of fast-food franchises globally. 
Like it or not --- cryptocurrencies are here!

  1. Do you think that to dramatically improve your success rate you have to read tons of thick books, buy expensive software and spend countless hours of learning more about Forex?

    What I'm going to share with you is something very EASY to use and very POWERFUL at the same time.

    Let me give you an EXAMPLE:

    Imagine you trade a system that makes 50% winning trades, but another 50% are losing trades. If you increase your odds of winning by only 20%, that would make 70% winning trades and 30% losing trades.

    Well, HOW TO accomplish that?

    Just pick the best trending pair at the current time and simply follow the trend! I have found ONE INCREDIBLE TOOL that continuously scans the Forex market and picks the most reliable trending pairs for you.

    By taking signals in the direction of a strong trend you would REDUCE UNNECESSARY LOSSES and increase the odds of winning. You need to know "how well" the market is trending to avoid very short-term trends.

    STOP hunting the market for every potential trade. Pick only the best trending pairs and time frames and DO NOT take any trading signals in the choppy market (unless you know exactly what you are doing).

    Successful traders keep it simple and this is the way how the pros made fortunes in the markets - by trading less and making more.

    To increase the profitability of any system or robot you are currently using, check out this easy and powerful ultimate solution:

  2. "Which Forex pair and time frame is best to trade" is the frequently asked question and I want do give you the DEFINITE ANSWER.

    Are you expecting that I am going to say something like EUR/USD on 5-minute time frame or GBP/USD on daily...? No, it is not so simple, but SIMPLE ENOUGH we can figure it out!

    The "PROBLEM" is that markets change over time. If GBP/USD was a well trending currency pair a few years ago, today it is another one.

    I actually want to let you know about a SPECIAL TOOL that I use to find the BEST TRENDING PAIRS among all the Forex pairs.

    ==> http://www.forextrendy.com?hfsdtb63546

    The software scans 34 Forex pairs on all time frames from minute to monthly. This way you pick the best trending pair and time frame at the current time.

    The system is running on our powerful computers, so you have nothing to download and install. Just join in and start using it within a FEW MINUTES! Get it on the link below:

  3. Drawing trend lines is one of the few easy techniques that really WORK. Prices respect a trend line, or break through it resulting in a massive move. Drawing good trend lines is the MOST REWARDING skill.

    The problem is, as you may have already experienced, too many false breakouts. You see trend lines everywhere, however not all trend lines should be considered. You have to distinguish between STRONG and WEAK trend lines.

    One good guideline is that a strong trend line should have AT LEAST THREE touching points. Trend lines with more than four touching points are MONSTER trend lines and you should be always prepared for the massive breakout!

    This sophisticated software automatically draws only the strongest trend lines and recognizes the most reliable chart patterns formed by trend lines...

    Chart patterns such as "Triangles, Flags and Wedges" are price formations that will provide you with consistent profits.

    Before the age of computing power, the professionals used to analyze every single chart to search for chart patterns. This kind of analysis was very time consuming, but it was worth it. Now it's time to use powerful dedicated computers that will do the job for you:
