Elon Musk-McDonald’s Dogecoin Exchange Triggers Creation of New Cryptocurrency – and it Surges Over 50,000% in Hours – Dogecoin – US Dollar ($DOGE)
Tesla Inc. (NASDAQ: TSLA) CEO Elon Musk tuesday asked McDonald’s Corp. (NYSE:MCD) to accept Dogecoin (CRYPTO: DOGE) in exchange for the world’s richest person promoting the company’s “happy meal” product.
The fast-food chain replied, in spirit, that it would comply with the request if Tesla similarly began accepting an invented coin called the “Grimace Coin.”
McDonald’s didn’t know it wouldn’t be an invented cryptocurrency for a long time. Yes, there are already more than a dozen Grimace coins in the wild world of cryptocurrencies.

Among those who recognized the appearance of new cryptocurrencies was the co-founder of Dogecoin Billy Marcus and Twitter parody account Greg, which is especially popular with the meme-corner community.
they haven’t, but there are more than 15 right now and journalists are asking me for messages about them, so it will be covered by the media
