• McDonald’s tweeted “what did I miss”, prompting a response from Elon Musk and the Dogecoin (DOGE) community
• Musk reaffirmed that he would “100%” appear in a McDonald’s ad if they implemented DOGE payments
• The price of DOGE has seen an upswing of 6.42% over the last seven days

On January 26th, 2023, McDonald’s, the American multinational fast-food chain, sent a tweet to its 4.7 million followers that sparked a chain reaction, resulting in a flurry of responses from Elon Musk and the Dogecoin (DOGE) community. The tweet, which asked „what did I miss,“ accumulated 8.1 million views in less than 24 hours.

Business magnate Elon Musk was quick to respond, replying to the tweet with „oh hi lol.“ DogeDesigner, a UX/UI graphic designer at Dogecoin, took advantage of the opportunity to refer to a tweet from Musk from about a year ago, in which he pledged to „eat a happy meal on tv if McDonald’s accepts Dogecoin.“ DogeDesigner asked Musk if the deal was still open, to which Musk replied with the „100%“ emoji, indicating his agreement to a potential collaboration between McDonald’s and Dogecoin.

The surge in views and engagement regarding a potential McDonald’s-Dogecoin collaboration have also caused an upswing in the price of DOGE, with it experiencing an increase of 6.42% over the last seven days, according to data by Messari. At the time of writing, the price of Dogecoin is at $0.085 USD, seemingly unaffected by the speculations of a potential partnership.

The conversation between McDonald’s, Elon Musk, and Dogecoin is ongoing, and the success of a potential partnership remains to be seen. However, it is clear that the combination of the fast-food giant and the cryptocurrency have garnered immense interest from the public, and it would be an interesting move to observe in the coming months.
