Dogecoin Gets High On McDonald’s Buzz — But Is It Burger King That Really Stole The Show? – Dogecoin – United States Dollar ($DOGE)

Dogecoin (CRYPTO: DOGE) shot up nearly 8% over 24 hours to $ 0.14 leading up to early Wednesday morning as social media buzz around McDonald Corporation (NYSE: MCD) accepting the meme coin continued.

Dogecoin DOGE traded almost 2.5% lower over 24 hours leading up to early Tuesday morning alongside other major altcoins.

Dogecoin, In Numbers:

  • 24-Hour Performance: 7.9%
  • 7-Day Performance: -13.5%
  • 30-Day Performance: -23.45%
  • YTD Performance: -15.8%

Why It’s Moving? McDonald’s laid out a condition for accepting DOGE on Tuesday. The restaurant chain said if Tesla Inc (NASDAQ: TSLA) accepts “grimace coin” – a makebelieve coin depicting its mascot Grimace, it would accept DOGE.

McDonald’s attracted high interest from retail investors at press time on Stocktwits, while DOGE was seeing trending on CoinMarketCap, a cryptocurrency price tracking website.

Altcoins, as well as Bitcoin, were relatively stable on Tuesday compared to equity markets which declined ahead of a Wednesday press conference by Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell.

DOGE is sitting just below a critical level on its chart with bullish traders looking for it to cross the $ 0.15 mark, according to Benzinga’s Tyler Bundy.

Dogecoin Chatter: McDonald’s humorous stance was taken after Musk tweeted that he would eat a happy meal on TV if the latter accepted DOGE. Restaurant Brands International Inc (NYSE: QSR) unit Burger King one-upped the rival with a tweet of its own.

Burger King’s stance won it some affection on r / Dogecoin – a Reddit forum that discusses the meme coin.

Reddit user crazycarl36 said “Burger King it is (again).” while another user Firm_Business_8378 said, “For real going to quit eating Mc Donald’s over this. Probably the healthiest decision I’ve made in my life. Buger (sic) King it is. ”

Dogecoin-centric Twitter handle Mishaboar reminded his followers of how low DOGE transaction fee would mean that if they paid for 10 items at a fast-food chain for one year with the meme cryptocurrency they would only be paying $ 2-3 in fee per year.
