Elon Musk: “DOGE is money”, Burger King accepts Dogecoin
Tesla CEO Elon Musk tweeted that the meme token Dogecoin is “money,” while Burger King restaurants in Brazil are accepting Dogecoin for Whopper dog treats.
This was not the first time Elon Musk tweeted about Dogecoin. For his (attempted) influence on various crypto prices, the SpaceX CEO received some fierce criticism. Now Musk is again dedicating himself to DOGE and explained on Twitter that Dogecoin is not a speculative asset, but real money. As so often before, the Musk tweet influenced the Dogecoin price again this time and drove the DOGE price up by 0.20 US dollars. As a result, the DOGE price was temporarily $ 0.2273.
However, the price increase did not last long and the Dogecoin rate quickly fell back to its previous level. During the last rally there were heated discussions about the hyped meme coin, which was pushed by various celebrities on social networks. As a result, the Dogecoin price hit a high of $ 0.6848.
The DOGE price is currently around 0.2 US dollars, so it is still a long way from the pre-rally prices of less than 0.05 US dollars.
Burger King Brazil: Dogecoin payments for dog whoppers
The Brazilian Burger King range now accepts Dogecoin as payment for the dog treats called “Dogpper”.
“Did you run out of Brazilian reals? Pay with DOGE! Burger King is revolutionizing galaxies again! We now accept the popular crypto Dogecoin as a means of payment for DOGPPERS®. “
The Dogpper is a time-limited offer and part of the proceeds will go to the Petlove Animal Welfare Authority. It is not yet clear whether Burger King will expand its trip to the crypto space to other products and crypto currencies in the future. However, it is not the first contact with digital currencies. Because in 2017 the Russian Burger King series experimented with a token called “Whoppercoin”.
Coinbase: DOGE adaptation
Now the Dogecoin adaptation is also advancing elsewhere. Coinbase Commerce recently announced that it will accept payments in DOGE.
On the platform, customers can now pay with the meme coin.
