Burger King restaurants in Brazil are accepting Dogecoin for Whopper-themed dog treats, according to the company.
Burger King Creates Dogecoin Deal
The fast food chain announced the offer via Twitter on July 27.
Tá sem Reais? Compra com DOGE! É o Burger King revolucionando as galáxias mais uma vez! Estamos aceitando a crypto mais querida por todos, DOGECOIN como pagamento para o DOGPPER®. 🐶🦴 A compra é fácil, vai lá no site>> https://t.co/7b3TBGdPTO. pic.twitter.com/4wP4Rn30pr

Translated, the announcement reads: “Are you out of Brazilian reals? Buy with DOGE! Burger King is revolutionizing galaxies once again! We are now accepting the much-beloved crypto Dogecoin as payment for DOGPPERS®. Buying is easy, visit our website.”
Each Dogpper is a meat-flavored bone-shaped treat priced at 3 DOGE (roughly $0.63). The company has asked customers to purchase no more than five dog treats at a time for availability reasons.
Burger King first launched its line of dog treats in 2019; however, this is the first time they have been available for crypto.
Will Burger King Fully Adopt Crypto?
It is not clear if this deal is a sign that the company plans to accept cryptocurrency on a broader scale in the future.
The Dogpper is a limited-time offer. Some proceeds will go toward the animal protection agency Petlove. Furthermore, the offer is not exclusive to Dogecoin holders; the company is also accepting payment in reals, the official currency of Brazil.
Those factors suggest that the offer is not strictly about examining the viability of cryptocurrency payments.
This is not the fast food chain’s first foray into cryptocurrency. In 2017, the company’s Russian division launched a token called Whoppercoin. That cryptocurrency is now defunct.
