Burger King UK piqued the attention of the crypto community after it made a cryptic tweet.

The fast food chain tweeted, "brb I'm making BiteCoin." The tweet caught the attention of the Dogecoin community after Burger King had made mentions of "doge" in its tweets in recent times.

As reported, the U.K. restaurant of global fast-food giant Burger King tweeted, "Trying to convince my manager to let me have an office doge" while it made a rather unusual request in reaction to a crypto user's tweet, "We need doge."

Members of the Dogecoin community commented on the tweet, and a user expressed disappointment, citing the "Grimacecoin" experience.

Early last year, Tesla CEO Elon Musk tweeted that he would eat a Happy Meal on the TV if fast food giant McDonald's started accepting Dogecoin as payment. McDonald's seemingly backed away from the offer by tweeting that it will accept Dogecoin if Tesla accepts "Grimacecoin."
