KFC Venezuela responds to Dash rumours

KFC Venezuela boss, Antonio Sampayo, has denied a recent announcement that it will start accepting altcoin Dash.

KFC has been in discussions with Dash, he said, but nothing has been finalised. Processing payments in this way “is not a fact, nor has the publication of any news about it been authorised", he insisted.

Earlier this year, CEO of Dash Core Group Ryan Taylor said that Venezuela was the venture's second largest market, with almost 100 merchants accepting the cryptocurrency each week.
