As another U.S. fast food corporation, Burger King, tweeted in response to Elon Musk addressing McDonald's regarding Doge, the Dogecoin community began asking Burger King when it plans to begin accepting DOGE.


Is Burger King a fan of Elon Musk and Doge?


Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla and the most vocal supporter of the original meme cryptocurrency, Dogecoin, tweeted on Jan. 25 that he would eat a Happy Meal during a live TV broadcast if McDonald's began accepting Dogecoin payments for fast food.


McDonald's declined the offer, stating that in order for that to happen, Tesla would first have to accept "Grimacecoin." The Doge community was disappointed, with some members wondering why it took the McDonald's team 10 hours to generate such a "cute" response.


Burger King, on the other hand, responded to Elon Musk with a slightly vague tweet that could be interpreted as support.



In terms of McDonald's and cryptocurrency, the company already accepts Bitcoin in El Salvador, as of last year, when the president officially adopted BTC as a form of payment in the country.


Burger King and Dogecoin are held in high regard by the Doge community


The DOGE community interpreted this response as a hint that Burger King might accept DOGE, and the thread took a speculative turn, despite the fact that no confirmation from McDonald's rival has been received.


Burger King began accepting Bitcoin Cash in late 2019, according to reports; this was confirmed by the coin's biggest evangelist, Roger Ver.


The company had also begun accepting Bitcoin in Germany before abandoning it.
