The CEO of Tesla, Elon Musk, said that he would eat a ‘Happy Meal’ on TV if Mcdonald’s would accept Dogecoin cryptocurrency as a form of payment.
“I will eat a happy meal on tv if @Mcdonalds accepts Dogecoin,” Musk said. Musk already said Tesla would accept the cryptocurrency for payment for some merchandise.
Mcdonald’s later responded by tweeting, “only if @Tesla accepts grimacecoin,” in reference to the purple character featured in some of the fast-food company’s advertising campaigns. Tesla has yet to respond to Mcdonald’s request.
As reported by The Wall Street Journal, dogecoin initially started as a joke in 2013, is currently top 10 by market value for cryptocurrencies, according to CoinMarketCap. Musk went on SLN and said, “yeah, it’s a hustle,” which sent the cryptocurrency’s into a downfall. The price of dogecoin has lost roughly 80% of its value since Musk’s SNL appearance.
