Elon Musk is the man who advertised Dogecoin for half of spring, sent the cryptocurrency “to the Moon” and promised to give it for his mother’s birthday. Now he can be happy, because the Burger King chain of stores has started accepting Dogecoin.
True, you can pay with cryptocurrency exclusively in Brazil and only with the purchase of Dogpper, a treat for dogs. It was named after the Whopper burger and costs 3 Dogecoin, which is about 60 cents.
Recall that the peak in popularity of the meme currency fell on the middle of spring. On April 12-19, the Dogecoin rate increased 60 times. On May 7, the value of the cryptocurrency set a historic maximum at around $ 0.6848 and began to fall. For a short period of time, Dogecoin was second only to Bitcoin and Ethereum in terms of market capitalization. One DOGE coin is now valued at $ 0.2056.
