In Dubai, a Dogeccoin restaurant centered on cryptocurrency has debuted.
The meme-inspired cryptocurrency Dogecoin ($DOGE) is accepted at the restaurant, which accepts payments in every major cryptoasset. The restaurant is a virtual one that delivers food.
Rocket Kitchens, according to Timeout Dubai, opened the virtual eatery. It’s a virtual restaurant chain. In fact, top chefs hand-picked the menu, which features all-American favorites. This contains, among other things, iconic beef, chicken, and mushroom Swiss burgers. Also, there are various options for hotdogs and sides.
According to reports, the virtual eatery accepts payments in all major cryptoassets. This encompasses $DOGE, $BNB, $CRO, $XRP, $USDT, and now even rival Shiba Inu ($SHIB), a meme-inspired cryptocurrency.
With its owners being early Dogecoin adopters, the eatery is apparently hoping to help expand crypto acceptance in the UAE.
The virtual eatery was even built with profits from the founders’ early bet on the meme-inspired cryptocurrency Dogecoin, according to the source.
Dubai’s Doge Burger
Doge Burger seeks to contribute to the UAE’s rising adoption of cryptocurrencies by accepting all major crypto coins. Moreover, the founders invested in Dogecoin early on in its development and used the proceeds to completely support Doge Burger.
Furthermore, the UAE appears to have been leaping into the future recently. MetaTerrace has recently opened as a destination for Dubai’s blockchain community. It also opened for nightlife fans. MetaTerrace is a mixed-reality crypto lounge in the DIFC.
Elon Musk’s on Virtual Restaurant
The restaurant is set to open soon. This is because Tesla CEO Elon Musk and Dogecoin co-creator Billy Markus urged McDonald’s to accept the meme-inspired cryptocurrency as a form of payment.
Musk declared on social media that if McDonald’s accepted Dogecoin payments, he would eat a Happy Meal on TV. This campaign drew the support of other celebrities.
At this point, it’s worth recalling that on January 14, Musk stated that Tesla has begun taking $DOGE as a means of payment for some Tesla merchandise.
In response, McDonald’s joked that Tesla would have to accept “grimacecoin” first. This caused the price of many bogus grimacecoins to skyrocket.
While the campaign failed, rival fast-food restaurant MrBeast Burger, established by online sensation Jimmy Donaldson (AKA MrBeast), tweeted at Elon Musk. He suggested that it will “work on” accepting the meme-inspired cryptocurrency if it receives a retweet.
MrBeast Burger’s tweet went viral, with Dogecoin enthusiasts gathering to pressure the fast-food business to accept cryptocurrency payments, even though Elon Musk did not retweet it.
Billy Markus, a co-founder of Dogecoin, retweeted, adding that even though he isn’t Musk, he would still retweet, and that DOGE supporters could still provide the firm with all the engagement and press they need.
