According to Twitter reports, Burger King now accepts bitcoin payments in Germany. 

This has been revealed by the influencer Crypto Sara, who posted a screenshot from the Burger King app. This screenshot, which shows the services offered by the company in Germany, also includes the bitcoin symbol among the payment options. 

The influencer comments as follows:

“Burger King in Germany now accepts Bitcoin in their app! Every day more than 11 million guests visit Burger King restaurants around the world. It’s the second-largest fast-food burger place in the world. BTC accepted here, BTC accepted there, BTC accepted everywhere!”

This means that, according to this screenshot, customers of the catering giant, with over ten thousand outlets worldwide, can now pay using bitcoin on the mobile application.

The app was created some time ago by Burger King to speed up payments, thanks to a partnership with Tillster, a San Diego-based company that offers mobile payment solutions.

Tillster’s CEO, Perse Faily, said: 

“When used and implemented, mobile payments provide advantages to both, the brand and the consumer, enabling a two-way dialogue as opposed to a one-way transaction. For consumers, they are able to utilize a convenient easy way to pay for their goods and opt-in to additional services that brands are developing, with Tillster’s help, such as loyalty programs, exclusive coupons, and other engagement tools”.

In 2017, Burger King revealed that they were launching a cryptocurrency payment system in Russia that used the so-called WhopperCoin based on the Waves platform. To date, however, it is unknown what the outcome of the experiment has been. 

At this point in time, there is still no further information in order to confirm whether the Burger King app in Germany really accepts bitcoin as a means of payment, but there would have been other confirmations from other users of the app itself that the bitcoin logo has actually appeared.
