Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla and a proponent of the cryptocurrency Dogecoin, recently made a tweet suggesting that he would be willing to eat a happy meal live on television if McDonald’s accepted Dogecoin as a form of payment. This offer was in response to a tweet from McDonald’s, asking what they had missed.
The “happy meal” is a meal package for children consisting of a primary dish, an optional side dish, and a beverage. Musk’s offer sparked responses from Twitter users, many of whom expressed hope that the quick-service restaurant company would reconsider their decision to stop taking Dogecoin.
Musk has been an advocate for the cryptocurrency Dogecoin for some time now, and has made headlines with his Twitter acquisition deal. He has previously tweeted about the potential of Dogecoin, even suggesting that the currency had the potential to become the currency of Earth, and even the currency of Mars.
However, despite his support for the cryptocurrency, Musk has also warned about its potential for fraud, stating that investors should “invest with caution.” This is likely due to the fact that Dogecoin is not yet regulated, and is still considered to be a relatively new form of currency.
At the moment, it remains to be seen whether McDonald’s will accept Dogecoin as a form of payment. However, if they do, then it may help to further legitimize the cryptocurrency and potentially lead to wider adoption. Regardless of the outcome, it is clear that Musk’s offer to McDonald’s has sparked a lot of discussion around the potential of the cryptocurrency.
