Tesla CEO Elon Musk is attempting to persuade McDonald’s to accept Dogecoin
Tesla CEO Elon Musk took to Twitter to announce that he would eat McDonald’s Happy Meal if the fast-food giant started accepting Dogecoin (DOGE).

Elon Musk urges McDonald’s to accept Dogecoin, promises to eat Happy Meal on TV
This comes after the leading e-car maker added the dog cryptocurrency as a payment option for several goods earlier this month. McDonald’s recently stepped up its marketing game by trolling the crypto community in its viral tweet following a significant market crash. The prices of Bitcoin and Ethereum have more than halved from their record highs recorded in November.
For years, the brand has been a fixture in crypto discourse, inspiring humor among investors who have struggled with severe market corrections by becoming food service workers for a living.
While McDonald’s memes tend to denigrate the work of service economists, they’re growing in popularity amid a market correction. MicroStrategy CEO Michael Saylor and El Salvador President Nayib Bukele ate the cake modestly after the Bitcoin crash, posting self-deprecating photos of themselves in McDonald’s uniforms.
Ironically, many community members have noticed that the Bitcoin chart itself now resembles the iconic McDonald’s logo after forming what appears to be a double-top pattern.
Last week, Dogecoin holders began begging McDonald’s to accept DOGE after the fast-food chain interacted with Billy Markus, the co-founder of the original meme, by sending him an image of a Shiba Inu dog with a French fry in his teeth.
