The British bookmaker began accepting bets on the fact that bitcoin can be paid at McDonald's

Against the backdrop of the growing popularity of bitcoin, the British bookmaker Betway began accepting bets on the fact that by the end of 2018, residents of Foggy Albion will be able to pay by crypto currency in the popular fast food chain McDonald's. This is written by Forbes .

At the same time, the coefficient for the fact that this happens is relatively low - only 1/2 with a fractional coefficient, or 1.50 when recalculated to a more familiar Russian-speaking users European system.

In addition, the bookmaker accepts bets on the fact that until the end of 2018 the bitcoin price will reach $ 20,000. The risk to make a choice to users is offered a coefficient of 11/8 (2.38). Also at the rate of 13/8 (2.63), rates are accepted that by the beginning of 2019 the price of the first crypto currency will be in the corridor between $ 15,000 and $ 20,000, but there are suggestions for skeptics: the coefficient 9/4 (3.25) is proposed for that , that by the indicated period, bitcoin will not be able to grow above $ 15,000.

"We see how bitcoin grows almost daily, and this leads us to the belief that by the end of next year its price will grow to $ 20,000. Also, given that more people are becoming owners of bitcoin, we consider it very likely that its will begin to take McDonald's. I do not know how much bitcoin will be required to purchase the Big Mac, but I think we'll find out soon enough, "said Betway head of the PR department at Alan Alger.
At the same time, the bookmaker estimates the likelihood that bitcoin will be accepted by the world's largest retail network Walmart - the coefficient for this outcome is only 1/5 (1.20).

Betway also accepts similar rates for British Airways (1/3 or 1.33), Amazon (6/4 or 2.50), Easyjet (7/4 or 2.75), Apple (5/2 or 3.50) and other well-known companies.
