- Elon Musk affirmed he would eat a happy meal on TV if McDonald’s accepted Dogecoin as payment.

- SHIB remains a favorite coin among crypto ETH whales, according to data.
Today, Elon Musk, the CEO of Twitter, reaffirmed a vow he made precisely a year ago that he would eat a happy meal on live TV if McDonald’s accepted the meme token Dogecoin (DOGE) as payment. Musk confirmed the deal was still open while responding to a tweet on McDonald’s official page.
Currently, the meme token ranks among the top ten largest cryptocurrencies, with a market share of over $11.3 billion. DOGE is worth $0.08564 after seeing over 5.7% growth in the last seven days. Crypto traders bought and sold nearly $500 million worth of DOGE in the last 24 hours.
The crypto community has been speculating that the social networking platform Twitter will adopt Dogecoin as a payment tool. The speculation heightened after Musk, the owner of Twitter, posted slides from a private meeting underlining potential modifications in Twitter 2.0, leaving a blank space on the proposed payment option.
On the other hand, DOGE’s counterpart meme coin, Shiba Inu (SHIB), continues to be a favorite coin among crypto ETH whales, according to data from WhaleStats, which tracks the activities of the most wealthy crypto investors.
Three days ago, WhaleStats data showed that the top 5,000 crypto whales cumulatively hold more than $616 million worth of SHIB.
The market tracker also ranked SHIB as the second largest coin held on the Ethereum network by the crypto whales. SHIB ranks 13 on the list of crypto with the most significant market share.
