I just hope burger king won't change its mind later on because it's not the first international company to accept BTC only to reverse  its decision later.

They don't have to change anything. You haven't read posts on the previous page. BK is not accepting Bitcoin. Everything is done by a third party site. It's like Amazon is not accepting bitcoin but you can buy a gift card with bitcoin and redeem it on amazon.

So, as far as I can tell, my post above is accurate: Burger King are not accepting bitcoin, but the service they use to provide home deliveries does (via Bitpay). It may be that Lieferservice have recently added the bitcoin logo to their landing page (hence the news story), but in reality they have accepted bitcoin for over 5 years already.

There is nothing for them to change their mind on.

Takeaway is the platform they are signed up to, and this platform is settling the incoming payments through its partnered payment processors. Burger King itself doesn't know what payment option you are using to pay for your food, neither does it care about that. They want to increase their revenue and for that reason utilize the Takeaway platform.

End result is free marketing for Burger King Germany and free marketing for Bitcoin. Yuuuuu!!

Buying an Amazon gift card with bitcoin and Burger King integrating Bitpay payment platform is different cause we can still consider the Burger King partnership with Bitpay as the company accepting bitcoin payment and I don't see any reason why they will change their mind later if there's no misconception between them and bitpay since Germany is a crypto-friendly nation.

It may be considered an “international company” but the operations more particularly their franchise are obtained locally by another local domestic corporation. That's why you will only see Burger King in Germany that accepts Bitcoin and no other countries have it, it's more of a local decision by the partnered domestic company rather than an international move unlike Steam in which their decision to accept BTC affects all customers across the world because it is only ran on one client. So if you are seeing fastfood related companies accept cryptos don't expect all branches will be accepting crpyptos as well.

It's true that local franchises matter, but not that there aren't Burger Kings in other countries using the takeaway site to accept Bitcoin. I looked it up myself just now, and The Netherlands and Belgium both are signed up.

I'm sure that if I check in other countries to see if there are local Burger King franchises signed up to takeaway, I'll be able to find them. It takes some time to search based on postal addresses to find them, but it works.

I find it funny how there are still articles being written about Burger King Germany accepting Bitcoin, and that while Dominos, New York Pizza, etc have all been there for a couple of years now. Just shows how little research news outlets do.

This is not the first fast food company that experimented with this. In 2018, KFC Canada rolled out the Bitcoin Bucket as a marketing gimmick and nothing happened after that. The global franchise has not extended this payment option to their other franchises, so I reckon it was not that successful. - Source:   https://fortune.com/2018/01/12/kfc-bitcoin-bucket/

The problem with things like this is the fact that most governments do not define Bitcoin as a currency, so it cannot be accepted as a legal tender in most countries.  Angry

The German arm of global fast-food chain Burger King now accepts Bitcoin (BTC) payments on its delivery website and mobile application.

Despite BTC's sudden apperarance on its official website, it is unclear whether Bitcoin is also accepted in the 600 physical Burger King restaurants across Germany.

BK embraces crypto again
In summer 2017, Burger King Russia announced it will start accepting Bitcoin payments, and then introduced their own virtual currency called Whoppercoin. Also in 2017, BTC started to be accepted by a restaurant in Arnhem, a city in the Netherlands.

According to Crunchbase, Burger King launched in 1954 and is headquarted in Florida. The company now boasts 13,000 locations and serves 11 million customers a day in 98 countries worldwide. The chain has estimated annual revenues of $1.7 billion.

Original: https://cointelegraph.com/news/burger-king-lets-you-pay-your-way-in-germany-with-bitcoin

Cointelegraph is another website which publish clickbait posts just ot get views.
If Burger King was accepting Bitcoin, then it wouldn't do that only in Germany but globally.
You should be more cautious or make your research first before posting something with is untrue and just creates a fake buzz around bitcoin.
