Tesla CEO Elon Musk says he will have a happy meal on television if McDonald’s accepts the cryptocurrency meme Dogecoin (DOGE quote). However, McDonald’s responded, “only if Tesla accepts Grimescoin”. Musk’s statement followed a tweet from McDonald’s asking how cryptocurrency was doing on Twitter.
Elon Musk is trying to convince McDonald’s to accept Dogecoin
Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk offered in a tweet on Tuesday that he would eat a happy meal from McDonald’s if the fast food restaurant chain accepts Dogecoin (DOGE).
As of writing, his tweet has been retweeted 34.3K times and garnered 229.1K likes.
Many expressed their excitement on Twitter, promising that they would dine at McDonald’s more often if the restaurant chain accepted DOGE. Some people have said that if this happens they will pay at McDonald’s with just Meme Coins. Some have asked McDonald’s to consider accepting other coins such as the shiba inu (SHIB).
The price of DOGE went up a bit after Musk’s tweet. At that time the price of Dogecoin was $0.1359. According to data from Bitcoin.com Markets, it rose by more than 10% to $0.1496. However, Meme Coin lost some of its revenue and fell to $0.1419 at the time of writing.
McDonald’s Responds With ‘Grimescoin’
McDonald’s official Twitter account tweeted in response to Musk. The fast food restaurant tweeted Tesla’s boss, “Only if Tesla accepts Grimescoin.” Grimace is a fluffy purple character who accompanies Ronald McDonald in McDonald’s commercials.
McDonald’s also recently tweeted about cryptocurrencies in general. The company posted a tweet on Monday that read: “How people use Twitter accounts for crypto.” Many people have posted memes about McDonald’s and cryptocurrencies, especially when prices are falling.
Musk, who was recently named Person of the Year by Time magazine, has been a longtime supporter of the meme cryptocurrency. It is also known as Dogfather in the crypto community. He has previously stated that he personally owns Dogecoin and thinks that the meme currency is the people’s cryptocurrency.
The Tesla chief said that Dogecoin is the best cryptocurrency to trade. Rather, he said that bitcoin is more suitable as a store of value. In addition, his electric car company, Tesla, started accepting Dogecoin payments for certain goods last week.
