Musk: “If McDonald’s Accepts Dogecoin as Payment I will Eat McDonald’s Live” McDonald’Reply
Tesla CEO Elon Musk said on social media on Tuesday that McDonald’s (MCD.US) should accept Dogecoin as a payment method, and said that if McDonald’s accepted it, he would Live a happy meal meal.
McDonald’s responded to a tweet from Tesla CEO Elon Musk, saying that McDonald’s will not accept Dogecoin payments unless Tesla accepts Ghostcoin.
But McDonald’s underestimated just how crazy the cryptocurrency world is. Shortly after the company’s tweet, more than a dozen “Grimace”-named altcoins had been created, with the price of one, Grimace Coin, skyrocketing within hours. It has increased nearly 53 times, reaching $0.00396116 per coin.
Musk is a big proponent of Dogecoin, and his tweets can sometimes have a huge impact on the cryptocurrency’s price. Dogecoin’s price rose as much as 8% on Tuesday following Musk’s tweet.
