Church’s Chicken the First Food Chain to Accept Crypto Payment
With the latest Dash Payment Integration, Church claims to be the first food-chain giant to accept crypto payments. Earlier this week, CBW reported that KFC has integrated Dash payment across all of its outlets in Venezuela. However, later KFC confirmed that this news is false.
CEO of KFC Venezuela, Antonio Sampayo, said that processing payments using the Dash crypto tokens “is not a fact, nor has the publication of any news about it been authorized.” The Dash Merchant Venezuela also released a statement with a public apology.
