Why It Matters: McDonald’s pre-Super Bowl advertisement tease was noted by Tesla Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA) CEO Elon Musk who responded to it with a “sweat droplets” emoji. Some construed that the announcement was concerning DOGE acceptance.
DOGE co-creator Billy Markus asked his Twitter followers why people thought McDonald’s was going to accept DOGE.
“If you believed the rumor, examine your thought process and who you were listening to very carefully, cuz it was a pretty silly one,” said Markus.
so why did people think McDonald’s was gonna accept dogecoin?
