Dogecoin co-founder Billy Markus has taken to Twitter to share that a new fast food restaurant has emerged, inspired by the original meme cryptocurrency, and accepts it as payment for burgers and fizzy drinks to go with them.

Markus has jokingly noticed that Elon Musk can probably eat in that restaurant for free (being a big Dogecoin supporter and influencer) but not himself, despite the fact that he participated in the creation of DOGE.

Doge Burger sells burgers for DOGE: Doge co-founder

Billy Markus, who created Dogecoin together with Jackson Palmer in 2013 as a joke and parody of Bitcoin, has told his followers about a Dubai-based fast food restaurant called Doge Burger.

This outlet sells fast food online and, according to the tweet, accepts Dogecoin as payment. The website states that burgers are sold for crypto. However, prices are shown in U.S. dollars.

The creators describe their restaurant as the first online e-commerce platform inspired by Dogecoin.

New Elon Musk Tweet Leaves SHIB Army and Huobi Puzzled

Elon Musk fails to persuade McDonald's to accept DOGE

Earlier, U.Today reported that the Tesla boss urged McDonalds to start accepting the meme cryptocurrency and suggested he would eat a Happy Meal on TV if that happens.

The global fast food chain refused, though, suggesting that Tesla should begin to accept Grimacecoin instead.

However, Musk's initiative with Dogecoin was sort of supported by Burger King and another McDonald's rival in the U.S.—MrBeast Burger. The latter tweeted it would start working on accepting Dogecoin payments if Musk retweeted its offer.

The Tesla CEO did not respond to that, but Billy Markus retweeted it instead. He also stated that the DOGE Army is strong enough without Musk's tweets.
