Burger King Russia soon to accept BTC payments

This is poised to be a major development to the cryptocurrency in Eastern Europe.

The burger fast food chain has appeared to be working on cryptocurrency payment integration for some time now, given that Burger King Netherlands was the very first region to accept bitcoin payment.

Integration of Bitcoin payments is not the biggest hurdle for Burger King. The brand still has to deal with tax issues, as Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies are not legal tenders in Russia.
If the currency is not a legal tender, it will create a confusing situation. Additionally, this may lead to some “emergency regulation” by the Russian government as well.
