Elon Musk promoting Dogecoin is no more a rare sight. But with consumer brands like McDonalds, MrBeast Burger etc. joining crypto hype, Dogecoin certainly is becoming favorite among the businesses. Earlier, MrBeast Burger responded to Elon’s challenge to McDonalds & joined the competition.

Though, they were not able to get a response from the billionaire himself, Billy Markus co-founder of Doge cryptocurrency responded with a request to accept Dogecoin As a payment. 

Musk Gets A Doge Deal With MrBeast Burger

MrBeast’s piece was re-posted by Billy Markus instead of Musk, who said that he isn’t a big influencer but would still do it anyhow. Additionally, he challenged the Dogecoin community to show that the Doge army can deliver on MrBeast Burger’s promise even in the absence of Elon Musk’s retweet.

Later, Markus said that Doge is excellent for online tipping and tagged sodogetip (the Dogecoin online tipping bot) to make a 6.9 Dogecoin tip to the MrBeast Burger account. In contrast, one of the Twitter users who participated in the discussion thread, @WSBChairman, who has 912,000 followers, said that the fast-food chain’s account may spark a firestorm.
