Burger King to start accepting bitcoins in Russia in 2017
“The company will announce a winner of a tender to design software to accept bitcoins on August 10,” the statement read.
Burger King Russia’s General Director Dmitry Medovy said, “Tax issues, rather than integration, constitute the main difficulty…Payments in cryptocurrency is our nearest future.”
Created in 2009, the bitcoin can be used for financial operations, including purchases of online goods and services. Its circulation is not regulated in Russia yet. ■
