Kroger to Take Bitcoin? .... NO!

Having  worked with Kroger was stunned by this earlier today, consider the implications.  But no was a hoax.  To influence share prices?   Walmart had earlier been struck by such a hoax.  I have often suggested that when the average person can readily convert  crypto to food, a key step will be taken.  When might that happen?

Kroger looking into fake press release touting acceptance of bitcoin cash

Nov 5 (Reuters) - Kroger Co (KR.N) is looking into the publication of a fake press release, claiming the acceptance of bitcoin cash at its stores, the grocer said on Friday, after becoming the second major retailer in recent weeks to get entangled in a crypto hoax.

The release, which said the grocer would accept the cryptocurrency this holiday season, appeared on Kroger's investor relations page and was later deleted.

PRN pulled the fake announcement and said it was "urgently investigating the incident including looking into any criminal activity associated with this matter".

Bitcoin cash is a fork of bitcoin's underlying software code formed in 2017, and was an initiative headed by a small group of mostly China-based bitcoin miners. (https://reut.rs/3bL8MNO) ... '
