Why It’s Important: There has been increasing pressure on large chains to accept Dogecoin and other cryptocurrencies as payment with the hashtag #AcceptDoge regularly trending on Twitter Inc TWTR on a monthly basis.

Dogecoin gained attention as a payment option recently with Tesla Inc TSLA CEO Elon Musk calling on McDonald’s Corp MCD to accept Doge as a payment option. Musk even offered to eat a Happy Meal live on television if McDonald’s accepted the request.

MrBeastBurger, a virtual restaurant chain from famous YouTuber Jimmy Donaldson said it would accept Dogecoin if Musk retweeted a post.
