The Dogefather actually rallied with the crypto community at the time to accelerate the integration of cryptocurrencies into the payment methods of this fast food giant. In response, McDonald’s asked the American billionaire if he would accept “Grimacoin” as a form of payment at Tesla. A troll!
In an article published on January 27, almost a year after Musk’s proposal, U°Today said McDonald’s has passed up a rare opportunity to ” go viral “. Indeed, a simple tweet posted by the new boss of Twitter, currently followed by nearly 128 million followerswould have revised upwards the number of McDonald’s consumers in the world.
