mashable.com – As the bitcoin and blockchain craze continues to explode, nothing should really surprise us anymore. Yet there’s news that a company that owns some smaller burger chains and even a few Hooters locations made some nice cash off of said craze on Tuesday.
Chanticleer Holdings, whose brands include American Burger Co. and Little Big Burger, dropped an announcement about a new “loyalty program” that would reward customers with units of a proprietary cryptocurrency to use on future meals via the MobivityMind blockchain platform.
Upon this announcement, Chanticleer’s stock became hot fire for a little while this morning, going as high as 95 percent over its previous value. Things have calmed a bit, but as of publication of this post, it’s still up 48 percent.
It was only a matter of time until bitcoin and what not started integrating my greasy burger spots…. I’m really turning into the old man who constantly yells “GET OFF MY LAWN”
