Elon Musk Still Not Lovin' It? A Year Later, Mum's Still The Word On MrBeast Burger's Dogecoin Deal

It’s been a year ever since a fast-food chain owned by internet personality MrBeast said it will work on accepting Dogecoin DOGE/USD if Elon Musk retweets their post.

What Happened:  A Doge fan on Twitter was quick to jump in and ask if MrBeast could accept Doge for MrBeast Burger. 

MrBeast Burger was founded by Jimmy Donaldson, who goes by the MrBeast moniker on YouTube.

Earlier last year, MrBeast Burger’s tweet got plenty of traction from DOGE supporters on Twitter. At that time, Billy Markus, the co-creator of the cryptocurrency said the company did not need Musk as DOGE Army is “strong enough to get ya some heavy engagement :)”

MrBeast had expressed doubt that Musk might not care.

How It Began: It all started when McDonald's told Musk that it will accept DOGE if Tesla accepts a fictional cryptocurrency featuring the McDonaldland mascot Grimace.

Musk had said he would eat a happy meal on TV if the Golden Arches operator accepts DOGE.

Price Action: DOGE was trading at $0.086 up 2% in the last 24 hours, according to Benzinga Pro.
