We're not making this up. The free Whopper #Whopperseverance package will likely go out to the first 2,500 people who are able to follow the instructions to Burger King's liking, and ends on September 1, whichever comes sooner.

The difference between this and normal loyalty points is that the WhopperCoin can be passed on to other people through blockchain transactions, whether sold, traded or gifted.

The initiative will see customers receive a blockchain-based token for every ruble they spend in-store. Have it your way.

"For over 63 years, Burger King restaurants have used fire to flame grill", Burger King said in a statement.

Waves Community News said the WhopperCoin has been issued with a supply of 1 billion but further WhopperCoins can be issued if required.

Burger King is going to release an app for the digital tokens for iOS and Android next month.

But one issue that corporate issuers had to confront, he said, was who else would accept their crypto-currency.
