All McDonald’s eateries have started accepting cryptocurrency in El Salvador. More loyal brands on the way?
All 19 McDonald’s eateries have started accepting Bitcoin payments in El Salvador. To make payments faster and with minimal fees, the company has used Lightning Network technology. Mac’s partner is the OpenNode service. Already, customers can order Big Mac through the delivery application and pay with cryptocurrency.
McDonald’s became the first major US company to take advantage of changes in El Salvador’s law. But OpenNode confirms: Several multi-billion dollar brands are gearing up to accept BTC.
The state itself is also not lagging behind. El Salvador is buying Bitcoin on the decline again. True, this time the amount turned out to be small – 21 BTC worth about $ 1 million.
