Grimacecoin (GRC) is a purple-character coin issued on the blockchain, which was featured in some of the marketing campaigns of McDonald’s.
Elon has been a staunch supporter of Dogecoin- a Inu-themed Japanese meme cryptocurrency started in 2013. Earlier this month, Tesla deployed Dogecoin for some of its merchandise. Elon’s tweet on January 25 helped boost Dogecoin price to stay afloat at $0.14 at the time of writing.
Recently, McDonald’s has also been tweeting about cryptocurrency, which paved the way for speculations on its Dogecoin acceptance. Two days ago, the company pinned a tweet that reads: “How are you doing people who run crypto Twitter (NYSE:) accounts?’’ To add, many tweeps have been in the front row posting memes about McDonald’s and cryptocurrency, especially during the recent price crash.
