Burger King has taken the world by a storm as they launched their all new cryptocurrency “WhopperCoin” in Russia.
Reportedly, with each purchase of their signature Whopper sandwich, customers can now get WhopperCoin tokens through a digital wallet. The token is based upon the Waves blockchain. It allows users to trade, transfer and issue tokens, on an integrated peer-to-peer exchange.
Customers can transfer and trade their coins online or simply use them to purchase food from BK. Although, the actual exchange rate for such transactions has not been revealed yet.
Just a year ago, Bitcoin users were threatened with being thrown in jail if they were ever caught using cryptocurrencies but that was soon to change. It is pleasing to know that the Russian Government has relaxed its grudge on cryptocurrencies.
The Burger King chain is set to launch an app for the digital tokens in both the Apple Store and Google Play in the coming future.
