If it true, would be good step forwards when Bitcoins accepting in one of big business such as McDonald.
But anyways this still rumors. We can't predict anything except in 2018, hopes fees for transaction Bitcoins would be more decrease. So many shop and business will start adopt this as payment method.

Another "yellow" headline from CryptoDaily, where text does not match the title.
Also, I don't see how it will work with such huge (relatively to the cost of food) fees. If we talk about bitcoin popularization, then yes, effect will be big. But how to realize this from a technical point of view, this is the main question.

Another big company has turned to bitcoin, that is awesome! Soon any store that will accept cryptocurrency, so better now to buy because when it becomes widespread, bitcoins will fly to sky.

This is more rumor than fact.

McDonald's Corporation hasn't released any news that indicates they plan to accept Bitcoin.

One McDonald's restaurant, in Russia, has said they will start accepting Bitcoin. That's a VERY DIFFERENT THING.

Here's the article about the 1 restaurant in Russia: https://www.investopedia.com/news/russian-burger-king-accept-bitcoin-payments-qsr/

Let's not let these stories turn into rumors. There's nothing here to get excited about. One Russian restaurant isn't likely to influence the corporation.

If it's credible then another big merchant is onboard and that's going to make Bitcoin grow astronomical because people will find new uses for it and will start spending on a daily basis or even boost personal security because they can buy food from McDonald's without fear of loosing their physical wallets.

Anybody who thinks this is a good idea has never used BTC to pay for something. Have fun waiting 30 minutes for your transaction to clear and enjoy your cold burger.

Does that even make sense with the current transaction times and fees? You are going to pay more for the fees than for your meal. Unless the fees go down drastically, it makes no sense to use bitcoin as a daily payment method.
Exactly, but it will feasible with some other cryptos like eutherium and dash which has very small transaction time. So thumbs up.

It's a good thing that mcdonalds will accept Bitcoin for payment but will be accepted all of the McDonald's branch? it's a big help for those who are using Bitcoin.

In the first glance, the news sounds good. But Bitcoin is not suited to fast food chains as payment gateway. Bitcoin is so huge and slow. Mc Donalds might ask you to stay in the store while the Bitcoin confirmation is not yet visible in the blockchain. Other good and fast alternative is: LTC , DOGE, DASH .

Off course this will be the profitable step for bitcoin because McDonald is one of the most famous service in the world and people all over the world knows about this service that’s why of they prefer bitcoin and will be accepted then bitcoin will be used more than used now and BTC will grow more.

If it really happens,  it will be a good news. Why? Because bitcoin will never ends if it's used as a daily payment by Mcdonald. The worst thing is the value of bitcoin will get high if it's used as a daily payment since its demand will also get increased. I guess the idea still needs to figure out further and carefully.

would this apply to all the McDonalds around the world, by applying payments using what bitcoin this would make the bitcoin rotate, it might be better to use another Altcoin in this case, I'm not sure it could develop

Yes, it is also possible that Mcdonalds will accept Bitcoin by 2018. It will also used them in their business. Because of easiness in getting a high price of bitcoin, They will also benefit on it. This is also the proof of Bitcoin is now accepted in many countries. And probably 2018, Many companies will accept Bitcoin as mode of payment. And Bitcoin will be leveled on fiats.

It is a great idea having a collaboration or partnership with biggest fast food chain in the world.
It will be systematic in the counter if they use bitcoin as a substitute currency for buying. 
Through this the company and management can avoid cash shortages or misappropriation of accounts which commonly happen.

McDonald's is only the first swallow. Despite opposition from governments, more and more structures will switch to the use of bitcoins and other crypto-currencies. And nobody can stop this process.

All the news i have read from crypto daily seem fake to me. I wouldnt trust that website
But i saw this information multiple times. But if it is true i think this kind of transactions using bitcoins become faster. If no, also this is a good idea using bitcoins for transaction. And i think this will be possible sooner.

 With Bitcoin’s soaring popularity and the digital currency breaking through the $10,000 mark for the first time, online bookmaker Betway expects Brits to be buying their Big Macs with the cryptocurrency before end of next year and puts McDonald’s on odds of 1/2. It also offers odds of bitcoin hitting $20,000.

I've read that also. It would have a great impact in Bitcoin because if a stable company like McDonalds will now accepting Bitcoins, then those skeptic people will no longer think of Bitcoin as a scam. Then Bitcoin will now increase more. It is a a good marketing strategy though.
