How To Get Businesses To Accept DOGE – By Billy Markus
Dogecoin co-founder Billy Markus, who created Dogecoin with Jackson Palmer in 2013 as a joke and a bitcoin parody, has recently taken to Twitter to advise the Dogecoin community on how to get businesses to accept DOGE for their products and services.
Markus is known as Shibetoshi Nakamoto on Twitter.
Billy Markus keep continue to support Dogecoin with his tweet frequently
Even though he’s no longer on the project, he continues to support Dogecoin and its supporters with his tweets frequently exchanging public messages with Elon Musk, the biggest DOGE fan with a significant influence on both the DOGE community and on occasion.
Following Elon Musk’s recent tweet to McDonald’s, urging the fast food giant to begin accepting Dogecoin, as well as the subsequent tweets from Burger King and MrBeast Burger, Markus decided to share his thoughts on how the DOGE community should behave in order to avoid driving companies away from Dogecoin.
In a recent tweet, he shared a list of instructions. The most practical piece of advice here is to show businesses why accepting Dogecoin can be beneficial for them and offer win-win scenarios.
remember, if you want companies to accept dogecoin:
– be cool! people don’t listen to jerks
– show them why it is beneficial for them! make win-win scenarios. show how engaged and cool the community is
– don’t act entitled or angry! no one likes that
be smart #dogefam

Other advice includes “not to be jerks” and not to get entitled or angry when persuading them. These days, such conversations with businesses are frequently conducted on Twitter, so these guidelines may be useful.
Furthermore, the community of another meme cryptocurrency—Shiba Inu, “The Doge Killer”—has been trying to urge such giants as Amazon to start accepting SHIB and persuading the Robinhood brokerage to list it by tagging them constantly in tweets.
Previously, the Dogecoin community urged Tesla to start accepting DOGE in the same manner. In December, their “prayers were heard,” so to speak, and Elon Musk announced that the company would begin selling some of its merchandise for the meme crypto “to see how it goes.”
Global companies won’t accept DOGE tomorrow
Markus also admitted that global giants will hardly start accepting DOGE payments in a short amount of time. However, he encouraged the community not to take it negatively but persuade them gradually and keep having a good attitude.
As an example of this attitude, on Jan. 26, Billy Markus retweeted MrBeast Burger’s tweet instead of Elon Musk and urged the community that the Doge Army could provide all the necessary engagement for the U.S. fast food brand without Musk.
When Elon Musk threatened to eat a Happy Meal on television if McDonald’s started accepting DOGE. The company politely declined. Burger King got a taste of it recently after interfering in a conversation between its competitor and Elon Musk as the pressure mounted.
Burger King might accept the meme coin
Burger King sees the opportunity to capture the billionaires and the Dogecoin community’s attention.
I will eat a happy meal on tv if @McDonalds accepts Dogecoin
— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) January 25, 2022
The positive reaction of crypto enthusiasts didn’t take long to arrive, according to one user. If Burger King accepted Dogecoin, it would be an alliance made for kings. With all of this enthusiasm, Burger King’s British subsidiary reinforce the notion that the fast food chain was on the verge of accepting Dogecoin.
Unsurprisingly, the Dogecoin community got carried away. Burger King, which gave away more than 2 million crypto tokens to customers in a promotion last November, didn’t respond to a request to comment.
The fast-food chain must have to make its mind quick because some of its competitors are watching.
.@elonmusk if you retweet this we will work on accepting Dogecoin 🤝

Bill Markus, the co-founder of Dogecoin who launched the McDonald’s campaign on January 19, urged Dogecoin’s fans to press MrBeast Burger to endorse the meme coin.

Fans of Dogecoin, which features the image of the Shiba Inu dog as its logo and namesake, are pressuring the fast-food giant to allow them to use their favorite currency to pay for their purchases in its restaurants.
Basically, the idea is that if a large number of people get involved, McDonald’s or Burger King would then see an untapped reservoir of potential customers. Accepting the cryptocurrency would allow McDonald’s or Burger King to get their hands on a pool of millennials and Gen Z’s much sought after by advertisers and its competitors.
There are currently almost 2,000 merchants accepting Dogecoin payments
If one of the fast-food giants were to accept Dogecoin as a means of payment, it would be one of the biggest boosts the cryptocurrency has ever received. According to Cryptwerk, There are currently almost 2,000 merchants accepting Dogecoin payments as of January 2022.
The best known is Tesla, which has been accepting Dogecoin as payment for the purchase of merch from the electric vehicle company since Jan 14. However, the meme coin isn’t accepted for the purchase of cars.
