McDonald’s starts accepting Bitcoin payments in El Salvador
In El Salvador, Bitcoin payment is now accepted for every product purchased from McDonald’s.
In addition to the dollar used in the country, Bitcoin was also accepted as the official currency with a decision taken recently. Although many people did not welcome this situation, some companies announced that payments made with Bitcoin will also be accepted. McDonald’s also announced that with the enactment of the “Bitcoin Law”, payments made in Bitcoin will be accepted.
McDonald’s can receive cryptocurrency with Lightning, a Bitcoin payment network, and payment infrastructure provided by payment processor OpenNode. An OpenNode spokesperson confirmed the news that McDonald’s is now accepting payments in Bitcoin and is working with large businesses to make daily Bitcoin payments efficient and scalable within two months.
Just walked into a McDonald's in San Salvador to see if I could pay for my breakfast with bitcoin, tbh fully expecting to be told no.
But low and behold, they printed a ticket with QR that took me to a webpage with Lightning invoice, and now I'm enjoying my desayuno traditional! pic.twitter.com/NYCkMNbv7U

At the same time, with this decision, the government deposited $30 BTC into each account in the “Chivo” wallet app to help citizens get into the habit of using Bitcoin. Let’s see how McDonald’s will follow with this new decision.
