Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla and a major proponent of the cryptocurrency Dogecoin, recently made headlines when he announced a Twitter acquisition deal. In a recent tweet, Musk indicated that he is open to the idea of eating a happy meal live on television, provided that McDonald’s – the world’s largest fast-food chain – accepts Dogecoin as a form of payment.
The conversation began when McDonald’s inquired on Twitter as to what they had missed, to which Musk responded with a hint about the possibility. When DogeDesigner – a UX/UI and graphic designer at Dogecoin – questioned whether Musk’s offer to McDonald’s was still open, the multibillionaire responded with a ‚100‘ emoji. DogeDesigner then posted a tweet to McDonald’s on his official account, to which Twitter users responded in various ways.
Many people expressed hope that McDonald’s would reconsider their decision to stop taking Dogecoin as a form of payment, so that Musk’s offer could be fulfilled. If accepted, Musk has promised to consume a happy meal on television, which consists of a primary dish, an optional side dish, and a beverage.
It is yet to be seen whether McDonald’s will accept Dogecoin or not, but Musk’s willingness to participate in such a promotion is an indication that he is supportive of cryptocurrencies and the blockchain technology that underlies them. Furthermore, Musk’s support has encouraged many people to invest in Dogecoin, which has seen a meteoric rise since he first began tweeting about it.
For now, crypto enthusiasts can only wait and see what happens with the potential McDonald’s deal. If accepted, it could be a major milestone for Dogecoin, and could open the door to more mainstream adoption of cryptocurrencies.
