McDonald’s joked that it would accept the Dogecoin cryptocurrency — but only if Tesla accepted “grimacecoin.”

  • This was in response to Tesla CEO Elon Musk, who said in a tweet on Tuesday that he would love to eat a Happy Meal on TV if McDonald’s accepted dogecoins.

Details: For the uninitiated, Grimace is a purple figure who has long been one of the major McDonald’s characters, like Ronald McDonald and the Hamburglar.

  • Grimace is also the source of one of the best punchlines in “Avengers: Infinity War.”

What to know: Musk has been publicly campaigning for the use of Dogecoin for more than a year now, showing himself to be one of the crypto token’s biggest advocates.

Remember: “Grimacecoin” isn’t real. So don’t expect to see it trading anytime soon.
