Fast food restaurant chain McDonald's announced on Twitter that it is ready to add "meme" Dogecoin cryptocurrency to payment methods if Tesla starts accepting the non-existent Grimacecoin token.
So representatives of McDonald's responded to the call of Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk to start accepting Dogecoin as a means of payment. The businessman said that he was ready to eat "Happy Meal" live if the network starts accepting "meme" cryptocurrency.
After the publication of McDonald's, the Grimacecoin token was created on the Binance Smart Chain network, the value of which increased by more than 200,000% at the moment, to $2. At 12:20 Moscow time on January 26, the token is trading at $0.000028.
Grimace is a purple character from a 1970s McDonald's commercial who acted as an anti-hero and stole children's milkshakes. The network later dropped the use of the character as he was found to be too scary for children.
Spread of conspiracy theories or even calls for murder: encrypted Telegram messaging, particularly popular with anti-vaccine movements, is in the sights of the German authorities who accuse it of not acting against the dissemination of hate speech.
