Elon Musk keeps his DOGE offer to McDonald's fully open
As reported by U.Today, Twitter boss and tech billionaire Elon Musk earlier today confirmed in one of his replies on Twitter that he is still eager to conduct the exchange he offered to McDonald's a year ago, related to them starting to accept Dogecoin.
The offer was made initially on Twitter when Musk said that if the fast food giant began accepting DOGE, he would eat a Happy Meal – a combination set for children with a main dish, a side dish, a drink and a toy - live on TV. However, McDonald's declined the offer, stating in response that Tesla should begin first to accept an imaginary crypto called "Grimacecoin."
Elon Musk's companies accept DOGE
After today's tweet by Musk was reposted by the DogeDesigner Twitter user, some DOGE fans in the comments opined that perhaps the fast food giant would now decide to reconsider Musk's offer.
As for Tesla and other companies run by Musk, Tesla itself and SpaceX are already accepting the meme token for their merchandise.
Last October, The Boring Company of Musk also joined them briefly as it sold "The Burnt Hair" collectible perfume. Crypto payments were possible thanks to BitPay and payment options, aside from Bitcoin, Ethereum and other top coins, included Dogecoin and Shiba Inu meme cryptocurrencies.
At the time of this writing, Dogecoin is trading at $0.08533, rising over 5% in the past 24 hours.
